Spay/Neuter is key to helping reduce euthanasia in shelters.

About Our Spay/Neuter Program

Humane Tomorrow offers low-cost spay/neuter assistance through our Catalyst Program. If you are unable to afford to spay or neuter your pet, contact us for information on assistance at catalyst@humanetomorrow.org.

Questions to ask when considering low-cost spay/neuter:

Can I afford to spay/neuter at my regular vet?
There are many reasons to utilize your regular veterinarian if at all possibleā€¦ not the least of which is that personalized care from someone who is familiar with your pet's medical history is always best. Developing and maintaining a close relationship with a veterinarian is the single best thing you can do for your pet in the long run. If you can afford it, go thereā€¦ and let us utilize the limited funds we have available to assist those who really need it.

What kind of care do I expect for my pet?
While low-cost facilities must meet the same required standards of care as any veterinarian, there are differences between high-volume facilities and your regular veterinarian. Ask about pain management, the type of anesthesia used, aftercare, and emergency care when making a decision about where to take your pet. Low-cost, high-volume veterinarians generally provide perfectly good care and can safely perform the procedure, but they may not offer after-hours emergency response or the same level of monitoring during and after surgery that your regular vet will do.

The important thing is that you get your pet spayed and neutered!

We also offer free certificates and can help with trap/neuter/release (TNR) of feral cats. Stopping one litter DOES make a difference!

Benefits of Spay/Neuter (from www.SpayUSA.org)

Benefits of Spaying (females):

  • No heat cycles, therefore males will not be attracted
  • Less desire to roam
  • Risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer is reduced or eliminated, especially if done before the first heat cycle
  • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
Benefits of Neutering (males):
  • Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking
  • Less desire to roam, therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents
  • Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreases incidence of prostate disease
  • Reduces number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites
  • Helps dogs and cats live longer, healthier lives
Top 3 Reasons to Spay and Neuter
  • It helps to reduce companion animal overpopulation. Most countries have a surplus of companion animals and are forced to euthanize or disregard their great suffering. The surplus is in the millions in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes for them all.
  • Sterilization of your cat or dog will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.
  • Sterilizing your cat/dog makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.
Additional Benefits (from The American Veterinary Medical Association):
  • Your community will also benefit. Unwanted animals are becoming a very real concern in many places. Stray animals can easily become a public nuisance, soiling parks and streets, ruining shrubbery, frightening children and elderly people, creating noise and other disturbances, causing automobile accidents, and sometimes even killing livestock or other pets.
  • The capture, impoundment and eventual destruction of unwanted animals costs taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies over a billion dollars each year. As a potential source of rabies and other less serious diseases, they can be a public health hazard.
