Spaying or Neutering Is Good for Your Pet

Spaying and neutering helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives.

Spaying and neutering can eliminate or reduce the incidence of a number of health problems that can be very difficult or expensive to treat.

Spaying eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.

Neutering eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.


Spaying or Neutering Is Good for You

Spaying and neutering makes pets better, more affectionate companions.

Neutering cats makes them less likely to spray and mark territory.

Spaying a dog or cat eliminates her heat cycle. Estrus lasts an average of six to 12 days, often twice a year, in dogs and an average of six to seven days, three or more times a year, in cats. Females in heat can cry incessantly, show nervous behavior, and attract unwanted male animals.

Unsterilized animals often exhibit more behavior and temperament problems than do those who have been spayed or neutered.

Spaying and neutering can make pets less likely to bite.

Neutering makes pets less likely to roam the neighborhood, run away, or get into fights.


Spaying and Neutering Are Good for the Community

Communities spend millions of dollars to control unwanted animals.

Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.

Animal shelters are overburdened with surplus animals.

Stray pets and homeless animals get into trash containers, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.

Low Cost Spay & Neuter Program

If you reside in Baldwin County and have a valid Medicaid card, you can have up to a total of six cats or dogs (or a combination of cats/dogs totaling no more than six) spayed or neutered each year for a special low price at participating veterinarians and non-profit organizations.

Here’s how it works:

1) Locate a participating veterinarian from the list provided below.
2) Call the veterinarian and make an appointment for the surgery.
3) Bring your Medicaid card and photo ID with you when you take your cat(s) or dog(s) in for the appointment. Your card will be photocopied at the appointment.
4) The veterinarian will perform the surgery.
5) Pay for the surgery: $10 for each cat, $20 for each dog; up to a total of six animals within a 12-month period.

Note: These fees apply to the spay or neuter surgery only. If your pet requires additional care, such as pre-surgery testing of an older pet or other procedures, those costs will be in addition to the above fees. You will be informed prior to the surgery if additional costs will be incurred.
