Spay/Neuter Assistance Program
Please be advised-At this time, we are NOT accepting dog spay or neuter applications as we work through our wait list. Dog applications already submitted are subject to extended wait times based on availability. Cat spay or neuter appointments will be granted in the order they were received and are currently booked through the Fall. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
You can also apply at the shelter in person.
Spay / Neuter Schedule Information:
Clinics are generally held every Thursday, but these are subject to change. Once your application is submitted we will reach out to schedule your date. Please allow up to two weeks for a response. There is currently a waiting list. Rest assured we will contact you when we have dates available. When your animals have been scheduled for their surgery you will receive a letter a week prior to the surgery with all of your instructions.
The Broome County Humane Society will be partnering with Shelter Outreach Services (S.O.S.) to provide affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services for the companion animals in our community.
The Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinics are intended for area residents who cannot afford the spay/neuter fees charged at their veterinarian’s office due to financial hardship.
IMPORTANT: This program is NOT to replace your annual/general/wellness/sick veterinary care. You should ALWAYS have a veterinarian for your pet(s) and see them annually (or as needed/recommended).
Each animal receives a physical examination, spay or neuter surgery under anesthetic, and, if needed, rabies and/or distemper vaccinations.
Pet overpopulation and animal homelessness is a community responsibility. Please help by spaying and neutering your pet!
Please list all the vaccinations your pet has had and provide a copy of the vaccination certificate on the day of surgery. Your pet must be current on both rabies and distemper vaccinations. If your pet does not have current vaccines, you must purchase them at the clinic for $15.00 each in order to use this service.
Fees can be paid with CASH or CREDIT CARD and are required at the time of surgery.
