Spay and Neuter Clinic

To reduce pet overpopulation, the Maryland SPCA provides high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter surgery for cats and dogs to qualified groups and pet owners in our Spay and Neuter Clinic. Prices are listed below.

Altering dogs and cats can dramatically reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancers. Additionally, altered dogs and cats are less likely to wander and become lost while searching for a mate and are less likely to bite or become aggressive. These are all great reasons to spay or neuter your pet while helping to reduce pet overpopulation. To this end, all cats and dogs adopted from the MD SPCA are spayed or neutered before they are released to their new owners.

Who Qualifies?
