Spay/Neuter FAQs

What is spay/neuter surgery?

Spay/neuter refers to the surgical procedure to render a dog or cat unable to produce litters of puppies or kittens. Female animals are "spayed," and male animals are "neutered."

At what age can my pet get spayed/neutered?

Owned dogs and cats can be spayed/neutered beginning when they are 3 months old or when they weigh 3 pounds. Community cats can be spayed/neutered when they weigh 2 pounds. If females are spayed before their first heat (which usually occurs when they are five to six months old), breast cancer can be almost completely prevented. Younger pets also recover more quickly from the surgery and experience less pain following surgery than older pets. In short – the sooner the better.

What are the benefits of getting my pet spayed/neutered?

  • Reduces animal homelessness, shelter intake, and euthanasia rates
  • Stops reproduction and heat cycles
  • Decreases risk of certain types of cancer
  • May prevent certain behavioral problems: roaming, fighting, "marking" territory, and aggression
  • Decreases risk of reproductive infections
