We’ve joined BISSELL Partners for Pets Program! BISSELL takes animal welfare seriously, and so do we. Together we will get more animals adopted, and spayed and neutered.


Spay and 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!


Register and Pre-pay (CASH ONLY)

Clinic registration open to anyone regardless of income or county of residence. However, so that grant and donated funds can help low-income residents, please use your local veterinarian if possible.

WHEN: First Thursday of each month, 5-6 p.m.
WHERE: Market on State, in hall by Grand China Buffet

  1. Cash (see tabs above for fees). No other forms of payment accepted.
  2. Photocopy of rabies certificate (not tag), if up-to-date.
  3. Proof of financial assistance and Athens Co. residency if qualified for reduced fees (see Reduced Fee Eligibility and Reduced Fees tabs). Without qualified assistance, prepare to pay full price (see Standard Fees tab).

At registration, you will receive an appointment date and pre and post-surgery instructions. Do NOT bring pets to registration.

There may be a one to two-month wait. If your pet is pregnant or could become pregnant before the appointment, we strongly urge you to have her spayed immediately with a local veterinarian, or at another low-cost clinic.
