Responsible Pet Ownership

The arithmetic of animal overpopulation is simple to compute: without spay/neuter intervention, a single pair of cats can result in 20,736 offspring in 4 years. The story behind the statistics is painful: most of these animals, cats and dogs, will die of starvation or disease.

To reduce overpopulation and its devastating consequences, Man & Beast, Inc. operates a cooperative program with a network of local veterinarians who provide spay and neuter surgery at reduced fees. This low cost service is available to anyone who calls.

Program Requirements & Details

If you do not comply with the requirements, the veterinarian may not perform the surgery.


  • Pets must be four (4) months or older
  • Dogs: Canine distemper complete, parvo and rabies
  • Cats: Feline distemper complex (FEVRC) and rabies
  • Pets must be current on vaccinations
  • Please clean and de-flea pet. Bathe dogs
  • No food or water after 9:00pm the night before surgery

  • Female pets that have just had a litter can be spayed two (2) weeks after the puppies/kittens are weaned.
  • No dog in heat will be spayed. Females in heat can be spayed two (2) weeks after the heat cycle. With cats, it is sometimes difficult to tell if they are in heat and is not apparent until the veterinarian does the surgery. An additional fee will be charged.
  • If your dog or cat is in early pregnancy, it can still be spayed for an additional fee which should be discussed with the veterinarian prior to the time of surgery.
  • On male dogs, if the testicles are not descended, he does not qualify for low-cost neuter.

Spay/ Neuter Program
