We spay & neuter for shelters, humane societies and rescue groups.
We specialize in pediatric spay/neuter, enabling animal welfare organizations to Neuter-Before-Adoption.
We spay and neuter feral cats.
We teach pediatric spay/neuter techniques to veterinarians.

*If you cannot afford to have your female dog/cat spayed, even at our regularly discounted prices, we frequently can find funding to assist you. We work with animal welfare organizations that have assistance funding available at times. We also do several procedures each month through the Georgia Department of Agriculture Spay/Neuter license plate program. In extreme hardship cases, our doctors and staff sometimes do pro bono spays. Contact us for more information, as availability of funding varies.
Special Information Notice
Reverse Sneezing in Dogs
Reverse sneezing is a common phenomenon in dogs. In a regular sneeze, your dog pushes air out through the nose; however, in a reverse sneeze, air is pulled rapidly into the nose. During a reverse sneeze, your dog will take long or rapid breathes, stand still with elbows spread apart, extend the head, and the eyes may bulge. Hell make a loud snorting sound, which might make you think he has something caught in his throat. Each reverse sneezing episode generally lasts for one to two minutes. The exact reasons for these episodes are unknown but may be related to anatomic defects, allergies, nasal irritants or inflammation. They tend to occur more often when the dog is excited or agitated. They are far worse in dogs that are overweight. A reverse sneeze may look disturbing many people fear that their dog is not breathing during these episodes but it is not a harmful condition and there are no ill effects. Reverse sneezing attacks are generally quite brief and not life threatening. An episode can sometimes be stopped if the dog is stimulated to swallow by massaging the throat. Sometimes, patting the chest may help. Stay calm and speak in a soothing voice. If you get upset, the dog becomes upset, and the reverse sneezing may get worse. Loosing excess weight will help significantly.

Feral Cat Information
Feral cats are homeless cats that have reverted to a wild state. They often go unnoticed and contribute heavily to the overpopulation problem. Sterilizing ferals has been shown to have a major impact on the number of cats & kittens killed in shelters & pounds.
They cannot be picked up and handled like a pet cat. They must be trapped in order to be brought in for surgery. We sell traps for $60 plus tax. If the traps are returned within 30 days clean and in good condition, we will gladly buy them back less a $10 charge for sterilization and restocking.
Feral cats can be brought in for surgery without an appointment. We know that you cant be sure when or if youll catch them. Set traps in the evening, as ferals are more active at night. Bring ferals in between 7:30 & 9:00 am, Monday thru Friday. They will usually be ready for pick-up the same evening over 90% of the time, though occasionally we cannot get to them all early enough in the day, and they must be boarded for a fee* overnight. They will need to remain confined until the next morning when they can be released.
We charge only $50 for females and $40 for males. If you are dealing with a large number of ferals, please call - we sometimes have funding available to help with large colonies.
*$15 boarding fee per night. Pick-up time is between 7:30-11:00am the following day.
