Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States. More than 60 percent of them are unwanted and will be abandoned, often brought to a shelter or rescue organization. We believe animals in our community deserve better.
Spay/neuter efforts dramatically reduce the number of animals that need homes. That's why we spay or neuter every dog, cat, and rabbit in our care before they're adopted.
In addition to managing population, spaying or neutering your pet improves health and wellness and diminishes certain undesirable behaviors.
Animal Humane Society Veterinary Centers provide low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter services to animal rescue groups and pets of people in need.
Animal Humane Society Veterinary Centers, formerly known as Kindest Cut, has performed more than 50,000 spay/neuter surgeries at Melrose Animal Clinic in Golden Valley and through a mobile surgical unit that travels throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.
Animal welfare organizations listed below may also offer subsidized spay/neuter programs or have programs that address feral cat populations. Otherwise, contact your local veterinarian for spay/neuter information.
