Spay & Neuter

No question about it!

Spay and neuter your pets and neighborhood strays

PAHS believes that the most important thing to do for the welfare of animals is to spay or neuter them, so that every puppy, kitten, or rabbit born may find a loving and responsible home. One spay or neuter surgery provides a lifetime of peace and prevents many lifetimes of suffering. Each year, millions of animals are euthanized at shelters across the country due to accidental breeding by free-roaming, unaltered pets.

Contact us for advice on:

  • Spaying or neutering your pet
  • Spaying or neutering stray or unapproachable cats
  • Spaying or neutering on limited household incomes

Spay and Neuter Fund

PAHS’ Spay and Neuter Fund provides critical funding to underwrite spay/neuter surgeries for homeless animals and animals from low-income households. Contact PAHS to inquire about spay/neuter support and availability of funding assistance.

Our spay/neuter support program is made possible by donations from the public and from friends of the Palo Alto Humane Society. We receive no government funding. Please give and have the satisfaction of knowing your donation prevented countless animal births contributing to pet overpopulation.
