Planned Pethood's Low Cost Spay and Neuter Program
By spaying or neutering your pet, you’ll help control the pet homelessness crisis. Millions of healthy dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States each year simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around. There are also medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets).
Here are some of the medical benefits:
- Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying prevents uterine infections and decreases the incidence of breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases.
- Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.
Do not make an appointment until you get your membership card. You will be e-mailed a digital card, please check your junk or spam folder if you do not receive it. No card will come by mail.
We have noted to the best of our knowledge the extras required by each participating veterinarian. There WILL BE additional charges above the membership spay/neuter rate. Please read the details over carefully and verify what your pet will need when you make the appointment. You may also call ahead of time and speak with the office.
*Memberships cannot be used for feral cats. Cats/kittens must be transported in a pet carrier and not a trap.

NOTE: As of 11/6/23, the current demand for low-cost spay/neuter services far exceeds what Humane Ohio is able to supply for the community. This means that there are so many people wanting to get their pets spayed/neutered, that keeping up is a challenge. The clinic is only scheduling 6 weeks out, and community cat appointments are currently filled for 2023, and requests for community cat appointments have been paused. Community cat appointments will resume in March of 2024, and can be scheduled on the Humane Ohio website through a TNR appointment request form once opened. The schedule is quite full for dog and indoor/owned cat appointments at this time, and scheduling for January 2024 will open in early December. Online scheduling is available, when openings allow, at www.humaneohio.org or by calling 419-266-5607 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
