Low Cost Spaying/Neutering


While Animal Protectors does spay and neuter all of the animals before they are adopted, we do not have the accommodations to offer spay and neuter services to the public. There are many benefits to spaying and neutering. For more information on the topic, click here


Spay/neuter surgery doesn’t have to be expensive. See the list below for the clinic that best fits your needs.

Abuse and Neglect (Animal Control)


Animal cruelty is a tough topic to address. It’s not always clear when an animal was abused. Here is a helpful guide to describe when it’s appropriate to call Animal Control. Please take the time to read through this guide to be able to recognize animal abuse when you see it. You will find the contact information for Animal Control below. If you cannot reach your local animal control office, contact Emergency Services.
