So you want to have your pet spayed or neutered? Here is all of the information you will need.

Thanks to The Athens Foundation, we’ve been able to further lower our reduced prices for low-cost spay/neuter, and increase the number of surgeries that will be performed in 2015!

Spay/neuter funding also comes from the Pets Ohio grant, through the Ohio Pets License Plates. All grant funding and donations allow us to continue to subsidize a portion of clinic costs for local residents and their pets!
