Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

Reduce pet overpopulation and make your loved one healthier

THE CLINIC IS NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

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. That’s 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!

General Information

  • All surgeries are performed by a licensed veterinarian at the Tails Humane Society Spay/Neuter Clinic, 2270 Barber Greene Road, DeKalb, IL 60115.
  • Surgeries are done by appointment only.
  • Pets need to be dropped off at Tails in the morning and picked up later the same day.
  • Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is strongly recommended for dogs aged 6 years and older but bloodwork is available for any animal for an additional fee.
  • We will need to know when your female dog’s last heat cycle finished to schedule a spay. 

Low-cost vaccinations and microchips are available during surgery.

Thank you DCCF!

Thank you to the DeKalb County Community Foundation (IL) for awarding us a $1300 Community Needs grant! This will help offset the cost of new kennel doors in our behind the scenes dog room. The original doors are over 12 years old and badly need to be replaced after housing thousands of dogs over the years.

Thank you QLP!

We'd like to say thank you to our awesome friends at Quality Logo Products and everyone who participated in their #QLPHowloween event! By sharing posts of your animals in costume, you raised $1,000 for our shelter - we're howling with excitement here!
