Spay Neuter Programs

 

Sterilization is the most humane way to reduce the number of unwanted puppies and kittens born each day. Millions of unwanted animals die unnecessarily each year. Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control offers two (2) spay/neuter programs for pets of Palm Beach County residents. Proof of residency and program qualifications are required.

SPAY SHUTTLE SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM

THE SPAY SHUTTLE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO A STAFF SHORTAGE - PLEASE CONTACT ONE OF THE MANY OTHER ORGANIZATIONS THAT OFFER LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER SERVICES IN PALM BEACH COUNTY OR SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A PRIVATE VETERINARIAN.

The Spay Shuttle is a mobile veterinary clinic for pet owners residing in Palm Beach County. Pet surgeries are completed in the morning and animals are released to owners that same afternoon. The cost is $40 for cats, $100 for dogs to include the surgery, rabies vaccination, license tag and microchip. With proof of public assistance, the fee is waived.

The Spay Shuttle currently operates Monday through Friday each week in the parking lot at Animal Care and Control. Please call 561-233-SPAY (7729) for information or to leave your name, telephone number, breed and sex of your dog or cat for an appointment. By leaving your name, you will automatically be placed on a waiting list. You do not have to call any further. When new appointments are available, you will receive a call back. Please be patient. Space is limited and appointments are not immediately available. The average wait for the Spay Shuttle may be several months.
