Low Cost Spay/Neuter

Dogs and Cats can safely be spayed/neutered at 4 months of age.  Your puppy or kitten can become a mom at 6 months of age.  If your pet is 8 years or older you will need a wellness blood panel done prior to surgery by your vet. 

Every 4 weeks we have a low cost spay/neuter clinic sponsored by HSLC in association with ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance located in Asheville NC.  

Reservations are taken on a first come first serve basis and space is limited.  We reserve the right to limit the number of animals one person may bring to one clinic.  There is no limit as to how often you may use this service.  This service is open to anyone regardless of the county in which they live.  

Registration is a must to secure your appointment.  Please do NOT bring your pet to registration.  All registrations are done at our facility located at 2422 Country Club Road, Lincolnton.  On day of surgery your pet will be transported to Asheville and returned the following day.  You will drop off your pet the morning of surgery (aka clinic) as well as pick up the following day.  

All Dogs are $30.00 regardless of size or gender, all Cats are $20.00 (Lincoln County Residents only while funding is available).  Out of County residents surgery price is: all dogs and female cats are $40.00, male cats $30.00 (while funding is available).  Rabies vaccination is required by North Carolina law at the age of 4 months.  Please bring the rabies certificate issued at time of vaccination or we must administer a rabies vaccine at time of surgery.  All vaccines are $10.00, we offer distmeper/parvo, kennel cough, feline distemper, and rabies.  We also offer nail trim for $5.00. Hernia repair is $15.00.  Also available is micro chipping for a one time fee of $15.00.  It is your responsibility to maintain the information so that your pet can find its way home to you.
