Spay and Neuter Clinic

Why choose the Seattle Animal Shelter Spay and Neuter Clinic?

The Spay and Neuter Clinic at the Seattle Animal Shelter is committed to providing compassionate and quality care to your pet and low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to any dog or cat in need. Our promise is to take good care of both you and your pet.

  • We specialize in spay/neuter surgeries, from the very simple to the very complicated. Our clinic does not accept walk-in appointments or emergencies, so we can remain completely focused on the pets in our care.
  • Our veterinarians are experienced and have performed thousands of surgeries over the years. The other members of the surgical team are skilled licensed veterinary technicians (LVTs).
  • We have a wide range of anesthetic options and can select the one that is best suited for your pet.
  • Each surgery is performed with an individual steam-sterilized surgical pack, and our suture material is the same as used in human surgeries.
  • Our surgical team closely monitors each pet's vital signs including breathing rate, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure and even EKG (if indicated).
  • We practice pre-emptive analgesia (pain management). Each pet receives pain medication before even feeling any pain, which means fewer drugs and less discomfort for your pet.
  • All dogs, cats and rabbits will receive a small green tattoo near their incision, which is a universal sign of spay or neuter surgery.
