The Community Spay / Neuter Clinics are being funded with private donations and grant money. (It is not part of an operational budget.) The availability of donations and grant money has been drastically reduced due to the unstable economy. Unfortunately, the clinics can continue only as long as funding is available. Once our current funds are exhausted, the clinics will be discontinued. We distribute the funds to provide one clinic on the second Saturday of each month.
Please use your local veterinarian if you are financially able. Many other organizations, above, including The Humane Society of Charlotte, provide low cost spay / neuter services. Our availability of surgical appointments depends entirely on the receipt of donations through the efforts of the volunteers and grant money. At any given time, The Animal Care and Control Free Community Spay / Neuter Services will have a variable waiting list. Please be patient as the free clinic is offered only one to two days per month so appointments are not immediately available. Where cages in larger sizes are limited, or during peak seasons, it may take up to four to six months before your pet is scheduled for surgery.
Appointments and answers to inquiries regarding weekday low cost clinics are provided by the Humane Society of Charlotte. To report late drop-off or pick-up, discuss fees, or reschedule an appointment please call the HSC at the AC&C Shelter deLisser Clinic at 704-426-1053 or Tomey Ave. location at 704-333-4130.
We encourage citizens to investigate all Spay / Neuter options available for your pet prior to submitting an application to The Animal Care and Control Free Community Spay / Neuter Clinic. The program is prepared to accept a limited number of applications from citizens who are financially unable to provide for the sterilization needs of their pets. All requests for service will be added to the current waiting list. We strive to keep our waiting list updated.
Pet owners can find the online applications at the bottom of this page. There is also a link to printable applications if needed.
Please notify the voicemail at 704-336-4424 if you have a change of address, email account, phone number or wish to be removed from the waiting list. Please note that the spay/neuter line is for messages only.
