Spay/Neuter Center

SICSA spays and neuters over 3,000 dogs and cats every year for families in the community. SICSA’s Spay/Neuter programs are for low and middle income families. Financial guidelines and spay/neuter fees are listed below. SICSA offers reduced cost spay/neuter surgeries year-round for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. You may live in any county and still come through SICSA's spay/neuter program. Thanks to a grant, if you are over our low income financial guidelines, currently anyone, regardless of their income, may come through our Middle Income program. We do still need your application and payment to schedule your appointment.

Timeframe

We are currently scheduling surgeries approximately 2 - 4 weeks in advance. Surgeries are performed on Mondays, Tuesdays (cats only on Tuesdays), Thursdays and Fridays most weeks. Our arrival check-in time is 7:30 to 8:15 a.m. (due to the number of surgeries checking in, we suggest allowing 45 minutes for the check-in process). Dogs are able to be released to go home at 3:00 p.m. and cats are able to be released to go home at 4:00 p.m. All pets MUST be picked up by 5:00 p.m.
