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 3 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. The number of animals per clinic, per household is limited to 4, and ONLY 2 can be dogs. There is no limit as to how often you may use this service. The discounted pricing is for owned animals only. If you are a foster or rescue, you will be charged invoice pricing. Please contact us for further information. 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. When you come to registration, if the parking lot is full, please circle the block until someone leaves. Please respect our neighbors and DO NOT park on their lawns or driveways. 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.
