Cost of Surgery
Pricing for spay/neuter surgery is dependent upon species, sex, and weight. Animals must be 12 weeks old and have either proof of a current rabies vaccination (certificate required) or must be vaccinated for rabies on the day of surgery.
TNR/SOS cats must come in a humane trap for feral Trap-Neuter-Release only.
Additional fees may apply for dogs in heat, pregnant females, or cryptorchid males (undescended testicles).
If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to afford the fees listed above, please contact SNAP of PA for potential financial assistance at 717-732-5377 or visit their website.
Spay/Neuter for York County Pit Bulls
Due to breed overpopulation, we provide spay/neuter surgery of any York County pit bull for a discounted price. The cost to spay or neuter a York County pit bull is $50. This cost also includes microchipping, at no additional cost! Microchipping your pet increases the likelihood of being reunited if they are ever lost.
If you have a pit bull in your family and would like to learn more about this program or schedule an appointment, please contact us at 717-764-6109 ext. 302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If your dog is a mixed breed but primarily pit bull, your dog may still be considered for the program.
To qualify, you need to live in York County and be able to submit a picture of your dog prior to scheduling an appointment. If you need help with this process, please reach out to the clinic.
Dogs in Heat
Spaying is an elective procedure, and delaying this procedure is a viable alternative to immediate surgery. If your dog is currently in heat or her heat cycle has ended within the past 6 weeks, it is strongly recommended to delay her surgery until the uterus and ovaries have returned to their normal state. Being in estrus (in heat) can put your pet at an increased risk for intraoperative and postoperative bleeding. Being in heat will also increase your pet’s time under anesthesia, and increase the size of her surgical incision.
If you wish to proceed with surgery despite your pet recently being in heat, there will be an additional waiver to sign at check-in and a $25 fee.
In order to expedite the intake process, please print and complete the following forms and bring them to your already scheduled appointment.
