Spay & Neuter

In the U.S. over 8 million cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies are euthanized each year because there are not enough homes. Animal overpopulation is a massive problem and it is our responsibility to care for neighborhood animals.  The number of unwanted births and the spread of disease is eliminated when an animal is spayed or neutered which helps communities spend less on animal control costs because shelters are not having to euthanize animals.  Cats that have been sterilized have fewer health problems and will have a much longer life expectancy.  

For additional information about TNR, please see community cats.

Georgia Pet Resources has an expanded directory of low-cost, reduced-cost, or free spay & neuter clinics.


Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinics

Please make sure to find out when the clinic is available to accommodate the cat’s surgery. TNR cats should be trapped the day before the surgery date. Never leave a cat in a trap for over 48 hours. If the appointment is outside of 48 hours, please release the cat and re-trap it at least 24 hours before the appointment.
