We are happy to offer Chilton County residents a low cost option for spay and neuter services through the Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic located in Irondale.
“Fixing” your pet not only stops unwanted litters, it also provide health benefits for your pet. According to the ASPCA:
“your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems. There are behavioral benefits as well.”
On the first Wednesday of each month, the Alabama Spay/Neuter “Snip It Express” transport truck will pick up pets in the HSCC shelter parking lot, take them to the clinic for their procedure, and return them for owners to pick up the next day. To get your Snip It Ticket, just come by the shelter during our normal hours and purchase however many you need! Next, follow the instructions on the ticket to make your pet’s reservation.
Tickets can be purchased at the shelter or by calling the shelter at 205-755-9170 during open hours.
