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.

Call 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

Because of its beliefs, PAHS has dedicated a significant portion of its annual budget to subsidize the spaying and neutering of homeless animals and pets of owners with financial need.

PAHS’ Spay and Neuter Fund provides critical funding to underwrite spay/neuter surgeries for homeless animals and animals from low-income households. PAHS’ vouchers are used at partnering Bay Area spay/neuter clinics. Contact PAHS to inquire about spay/neuter support and availability of funding assistance. For information on our CatWorks, RabbitWorks, and RodentWorks spay and neuter programs, click here.

Our spay/neuter vouchers are 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.

PAHS annually underwrites the neutering of 1,000-2,000 animals through our Spay and Neuter Fund.
