LOW-COST SPAY & NEUTER
Spaying and neutering is critical. It will not only save the unnecessary euthanasia of millions of dogs and cats each year, but it will help your pet live longer. Spaying and neutering are routine, affordable surgeries that can prevent thousands of animals from being born only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized in animal shelters for lack of a loving home.
Rockbridge Animal Alliance will pay for the spay/neuter of your dog for an owner co-pay of $50. Applicants must fall within a specific socio-economic parameter. Your dog will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated for rabies by a local vet. Surgeries are scheduled within just a few weeks once your application has been approved. We will be in touch by email (check your spam folder) or text with more details.
PLEASE BE AWARE: If you have been granted a voucher and do not show-up for your scheduled appointment at one of our participating veterinarians, we will not offer services to you in the future. Veterinarians are extremely busy and booked well in advance. You are expected to have consideration for others and be a responsible pet owner.
Cats Unlimited offers a low cost spay/neuter program for the citizens of Rockbridge County and the cities of Lexington and Buena Vista. For a co-pay of $40 per cat, you can have it spayed/neutered, vaccinated for rabies, and treated for parasites. Please call 540-458-2287 for more information about their program.
By spaying/neutering, female pets will have less urinary track infections and develop less breast tumors which are highly deadly in dogs and cats. Male pets will be less likely to develop testicular cancer, and some aggression problems may improve. In addition, it may be possible to reduce urinary marking.
Kittens can be spayed/neutered as early as 8 weeks and puppies before the age of 6 months. Adults may be spayed/neutered as well. Depending on their age and physical health, there could be some complications.
