Low Cost Spay and Neuter Services

Sadly, the #1 killer of domestic cats and dogs is euthanasia, caused by pet overpopulation. We at Action For Animals do as much as we can to prevent this by rescuing as many animals as possible. We also offer Low Cost Spay and Neuter Services (by appointment) at our Clinic for Westmoreland County and surrounding counties.

Our prices are as follows:*
Neuter Services for a Male Cat: $40
Spay Services for a Female Cat: $50
Spay/Neuter Services for Dogs: price per weight (call for rates)

We also offer shots, leukemia & heartworm tests and microchips for additional fees.

Call the shelter at 724-539-2544 and leave a message if you reach voicemail. Your call will be returned within 48 hours to schedule an appointment.

*We accept cash or credit card (an extra fee will apply) for payment. No checks or debit cards are accepted.

Stopping pet overpopulation starts with you!

In every community, in every state, there are homeless animals. In the U.S. as a whole, there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. About half of these animals are adopted, and tragically, the other half are euthanized. These are healthy, sweet pets who would have made great companions.

The number of homeless animals varies by state – in some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. These are not the offspring of homeless "street" animals – these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds.

Need more reasons to spay and neuter?

  • It significantly reduces the risks of your pet developing cancer or other illness.
  • It makes pets less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away or get lost.
  • Your pets will be less inclined to be aggressive and less likely to bite.
  • Your pet is more likely to become more calm, gentle and affectionate.
  • It can reduce or eliminate unwanted behaviors such as spraying, wailing and heat cycles.

If your pet is not yet spayed or neutered, don't wait – call the shelter to make an appointment. Spay or neuter surgery carries a one-time cost that is relatively small (especially through our Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program) when one considers its benefits. It's a small price to pay for the health of your pet and the prevention of more unwanted animals.
