Affordable Spay/Neuter Clinic

Reduce pet overpopulation and make your loved one healthier

The Tails Spay/Neuter clinic is a non-profit surgical clinic that provides high quality, affordable spay/neuter surgeries and preventative care. Our vision is to reduce dog and cat overpopulation so that all pets have a loving home.

Each year, millions of animals are euthanized in the United States. Tails recognizes the direct link between the sterilization of pets and the pet overpopulation crisis. Which is why we operate the area’s only low-cost spay/neuter clinic. We believe cost should not be a barrier to any pet owner who wants to do their part to help control the pet population!
