Low Cost Spay & Neuter

Our veterinarians are experts and specialize in spay and neuter surgeries. As a nonprofit organization, our program is based on your individual needs.

Some restrictions may apply, but your ability to pay is not one of them.

  • SNKC staff members are caring, compassionate and well trained.
  • All pets are monitored throughout recovery.
  • Sutures are dissolvable so no return visit is necessary.
  • Animals over the age of 6 years old may need pre-surgical blood work and a pre-exam from our veterinarian.
  • All animals go home same day of surgery.
  • It is mandatory for all Pit Bulls to be spayed and neutered that reside within the Kansas City, Missouri, city limits. To that end, we try to work with pit bull owners in KCMO who cannot afford to spay or neuter their dog to get them taken care of affordably.

We can spay or neuter animals as young as 12 weeks old or weighing as little as 3 lbs

There are many health benefits to spaying or neutering your pet. Spay and Neuter Kansas City provides this service at an affordable price as well as low cost veterinary services.

Spay & Neuter Health Benefits

Spayed animals no longer feel the need to roam to look for a mate. The result is that they stay home and have less chance of being involved in traumatic accidents such as being hit by a car. They also have a much lower incidence of contracting contagious diseases, and get into fewer fights.

In males, neutering decreases the chances of developing prostatic disease and hernias, and eliminates the chances of developing testicular cancer. It also reduces problems with territorial and sexual aggression, inappropriate urination (spraying) and other undesirable male behaviors.

In Females, spaying decreases the incidence of breast cancer (the rate goes down to almost zero if the spaying is done before the first heat cycle!). It eliminates the chance of developing a serious and potentially fatal infection of the uterus experienced by many mature unspayed animals (pyometra). Spay surgery also eliminates the heat cycle and associated mood swings and undesirable behaviors, messy spotting (in dogs) and the attraction of all available males to your yard.

Spaying & Neutering Facts

  • Help lower the euthanasia rate by decreasing the amount of unwanted animals.
  • Improve your pet’s health and life expectancy. Sterilized pets lead healthier, happier, and longer lives. It also reduces the risk of them getting various forms of cancer.
  • Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog and bite attacks. Fewer dogs, fewer attacks. Simple, right?
  • Males are less aggressive and will not actively seek out mates, thus decreasing the likelihood of your pet to wander off.
  • A cleaner house! Female dogs pass bloody fluid twice a year as part of their estrous cycle. No more carpet cleaning on account of that!

Community Cat Policy

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a program through which free-roaming feral cats (community cats) are humanely trapped, transported to a veterinarian where they are sterilized, rabies vaccinated, left ear-tipped and returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. The ear-tipping of a cat is the universal sign of an altered community cat. This is the most humane, effective, and financially sustainable strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations and the only proven humane and effective method to manage community cat colonies.

Once TNR is in place, the cats will no longer reproduce; the population will stabilize and eventually decline. TNR programs stop reproduction and therefore mating behaviors such as fighting, roaming, spraying, yowling or fighting stops. This helps the cats become better neighbors to everyone. The cats are rabies vaccinated and are less susceptible to infectious diseases. This will help improve the overall health of the cats. This is a win, win for us all. For more information on TNR please contact us.

Spay and Neuter Kansas City offers Feral Cat Packages for $35 which includes, spay or neuter, rabies vaccination, 24-hour pain injection and ear-tipping. We also offer a trap rental service with a required $50 deposit per trap. For more information, questions, or to schedule to bring a community cat in, please contact our main office
