Baltimore City residents with annual earnings below $25,000 (as an individual) or $42,000 (as a household) may qualify free or reduced-priced services. This program is funded by the Maryland Department of Agriculture, which aims to reduce the number of unwanted and abandoned pets in our area. To be eligible, you must live in a designated ZIP code (21205, 21206, 21215, 21216, 21217, 21218, 21223, 21224, 21225, or 21229) and participate in at least one of these programs:
- EBT Card/independence card holder.
- Social Security/VA Disability.
The cost to spay or neuter your pet runs from $50 to $100 per animal and includes surgery, rabies* and distemper vaccinations, and nail trimming. If your pet is cryptorchid (testicles have not descended), there’s an additional fee of $20 per retained testicle.
(*Only pets over 12 weeks of age are eligible for a rabies vaccination.)
Make an Appointment
For appointments or questions, call 410-889-SPAY (7729) and leave a message, or email email@example.com. Due to high demand, it may take three days or longer for us to respond.
For dog spaying/neutering, we require a $25 deposit to secure your appointment time. The money will go toward the cost of your dog’s surgery on appointment day. If you do not keep your appointment and do not call by noon the day before to cancel, you will forfeit your $25 deposit.

After your pet’s spay/neuter surgery, follow these video instructions for proper care. If you experience any problems, please contact us immediately at (410) 889-7729.
