Animal Groups Sponsor Free & Low Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries August 20: "Spay Day"


Animal Care & Control of New York City, the ASPCA and the Mayor's Alliance for New York City's Animals are sponsoring free or low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs belonging to area residents on August 20. Free or low-cost services are available to those on public assistance, on a fixed income or living in public housing.

Check in begins at 7 a.m.


Spaying and neutering not only prevents unwanted births but has many health benefits:


Prevents testicular cancer in males


Prevents pyometra (infected uterus) and breast cancer in females


Diminishes roaming tendencies


Decreases the urge to mark territory by spraying or urinating


Enables your pet to live a longer, healthier life


Surgeries will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Do not feed or water your pet after midnight on August 19. Other services, including microchipping, heartworm testing and flea prevention medication, will be offered at low prices.
