UPDATE ON THE JUNE 27th CLINIC IN STARK COUNTY ~~ As of May 19th, there are now 42 online appointment requests and 12 voicemail messages. While this makes us incredibly happy, please know that we are limited to 30 total dog-cat spays & dog neuters, and an additional 20 cat neuters, so it’s safe to say that this clinic is nearly full. We will be making our way through the messages and will advise if we are able to facilitate your pet.
If we are not able to fit them in, please reach out to the other awesome resources for low-cost spay/neuter (see the “links” page on our website) and know that we are working hard to bring more access to Northeast Ohio.
Thank you for spaying and neutering your pets!

DID YOU KNOW: One female dog and her offspring can give birth to 67,000 puppies. In seven years, one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens.
DID YOU KNOW: Millions of healthy, adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized each year in the U.S. because there simply are not enough homes for them all…
An unspayed female cat, her mate and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters per year, with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter can total:
1 year: 12
2 years: 67
3 years: 376
4 years: 2,107
5 years: 11,801
6 years: 66,088
7 years: 370,092
8 years: 2,072,514
9 years: 11,606,077
Each year in the US, between six and eight million dogs and cats enter animal shelters; far too many animals to all find homes. Of those, four million — about one every eight seconds — are killed in US shelters each year. These numbers don’t even consider those that don’t make it as far as the shelter — the unwanted litters that fall prey to predators as they try to fend for themselves, are hit by cars, freeze to death, are sold for medical research or taken by dogfighters.
Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. Consider the fact that in six short years, one female dog and her offspring can give birth to 67,000 puppies. In seven years, one cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens. In towns and cities that have implemented spay/neuter programs, the Humane Society of the United States has seen the number of companion animals who had to be euthanized decline by 30 to 60 percent—even in those communities where human populations have been steadily increasing.
THIS CLINIC IS NOT A MONEY MAKING VENTURE. We are interested in helping to reduce the homeless pet population and in providing assistance to the members of our community who are responsible pet guardians.
