Low-Cost Spay & Neuter

Spay the Bay provides low-cost spay and neuter services for dogs and cats.

Spaying and neutering your companion pet helps the community by minimizing unwanted litters, reducing overpopulation, and is one of the most important things you can do to improve the longevity and happiness of your beloved companion. 

Learn more about the benefits of spaying and neutering on our FAQ page, or request a spay or neuter appointment.

Missed Appointment Policy/Deposit Requirement:

Because we see a large volume of clients, we are able to charge comparatively less than would be charged at other veterinary practices for similar services. When clients miss appointments or reschedule with less than 24 hour notice, we see fewer patients, making it difficult to maintain our affordable prices. To maintain our prices we have established a Missed Appointment Policy/Deposit Requirement where clients are charged $30 non-refundable surgery deposit. The deposit will be applied to the cost of the surgery. This policy allows us to continue to offer the community affordable veterinary care.
