Volunteers For Animal Welfare’s SPOT Clinic was the first high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinic for low-income families in Oklahoma City. The SPOT Clinic services are available for any family that makes under $40,000 per year total household income, or any rescue group in the state of Oklahoma. The SPOT Clinic will also spay/neuter feral cats at the same reduced rate.
***SPOT Clinic is a SPAY and NEUTER clinic. We do offer other services such as vaccinations and flea control at the time of spay/neuter. SPOT Clinic also will do rabies updates and other services to help you take care of your pet. Please call for more details.***
Starting in March we will offer vaccination for our clients.
The SPOT Clinic’s goal is to stop the pet overpopulation problem seen in Oklahoma today. Since opening our doors in 2006, our clinic has spayed or neutered over 43,000 cats and dogs. Puppies and kittens can be spayed or neutered as early as eight weeks old before they are old enough to have a litter themselves. For more information, click on Early Age Spay or Neuter.
Because spaying and neutering are surgical procedures, you will need to make an appointment for your pet(s). Please review the following information before scheduling an appointment.
Drop off is 7:30 am to 8:15 am
Pick up is 4:45 pm to 5:30 pm
The process is applied to animals for a number of reasons, such as reducing aggression, reducing the risk of transmission of genetically-advanced diseases or diseases caused by the work of these glands. When it comes to surgical intervention we must know that it should be done in accordance with the animal welfare law, which among other things implies that it is performed under general anesthesia, respecting all principles of antisepsis.
When we talk about behavior as a reason for castration, studies have shown that castrated pets are positive behaviors, they become better pets and have a better relationship with the owner. Castration of males reduces runaway from home, wandering for females, same-sex aggression and marking territory by urinating. Also, a pet has reduced stress, irritability and exhaustion caused by full hormones. Uncontrolled breeding of dogs and cats can result in a greater number of stray dogs left to themselves.
