World Spay Day

When an animal is spayed (female), its’ reproductive organs are removed, making it unable to go into heat or become pregnant. When an animal is neutered (male), it loses its’ testicles so that it cannot impregnate a female.

All surgeries are performed by a certified veterinarian. All animals are assured comfort while undergoing surgery, therefore the animal is put under anesthesia; that way they do not feel any pain procedures.

Your pet is a companion, a friend and a member of your family.

For every kitten or puppy that finds a happy home, several others are unwanted, unloved and possibly neglected or abused. Don’t be part of the problem…be part of the solution! Spaying and neutering your own pet not only helps reduce the number of unwanted pets, it provides long term benefits to your dog or cat.

Generally, veterinarians recommend that a female cat and dog be spayed at about 7 months of age. Male dogs and cats can be neutered at 7 months to one year of age. Your vet will be able to recommend the most appropriate time for your pet’s surgery.

Failing to spay and neuter dogs and cats is responsible for millions of unwanted animals living on the streets without homes or food or being killed all over the world. So while it might make you twinge to think of a day celebrating animal sterilization, the truth is, the pain of putting all those animals down is far harsher.

      Hi. The charges vary from one vet to another. The KSPCA is not licensed to offer private veterinary services unless it’s under a planned campaign in a given region, which we communicate to the public in advance.
