Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Certificates

Low-cost spay and neuter certificates are available nationally through two programs, whose toll-free numbers are listed here and which have participating veterinarians in most major cities (including the St. Louis area). Many shelters and clinics also provide lower-cost spay/neuter surgery.

  • Reasons To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets

    1. Spaying a female before the first heat greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer, which is usually fatal. It is not beneficial for an animal to go through one heat cycle, or to have one litter.
    2. Neutering reduces aggression; it does not make an animal fearful or fat or lazy.
    3. Spayed and neutered animals are less likely to run off and fight.
    4. Animals that don't fight don't get injured � they also don't get fatal diseases such as FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus � Feline AIDS) which is spread by bites.
    5. If your female dog or cat is spayed, the neighborhood males and strays won�t park outside your house, barking or yowling.
    6. Male cats neutered before sexual maturity very rarely spray � a form of territory marking. If your unneutered cat is spraying, neutering provides the best chance of stopping the behavior.
    7. Neutered males don�t have that stinky tom-cat smell or strong-smelling urine.
