Protectors of Animals, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Donating to our clinic gives us the opportunity to spay/neuter more animals - strays, feral cats and pets of financially challenged owners who need assistance with these services.

Your dog must be 3lbs./3 months of age to be spayed/neutered. Your dog will receive a brief physical exam prior to surgery. Our veterinarian reserves the right to refuse services if your pet shows signs of illness or injury. All pets 12 weeks and older receiving services at our clinic must be accompanied by a current rabies certificate at the time of surgery admission or a rabies vaccination will be given, at no extra charge. A rabies tag and hospital invoices are not acceptable proof of rabies vaccination. Appointments are required! When making an appointment, please let us know if your dog has special needs, such as fear of other dogs or strangers.


PLEASE NOTE:A $50 deposit* is required for all dog appointments.

  • You may reschedule 48 hrs before your appointment with no additional deposit or penalty. The remainder of the payment is due at the time of admission. We accept cash, credit cards and debit cards.
  • Clients booking appointments online will be contacted by phone for the deposit prior to the appointment being confirmed.


*Pit Bull/Pit Bull Mix owners with Department of Agriculture Animal Population Control Program vouchers, which cover the full cost of the surgery, will be refunded the $50 deposit when they pick up their dogs after surgery. Also, if we cannot perform the surgery due to medical reasons, we will refund your deposit.
