Spay & Neuter
Welcome to the Humane Society of Manatee County spay and neuter information page and thank you for visiting Manatee County’s only high-quality/high volume spay and neuter clinic. Humane Society of Manatee County has and will continue to lead our community’s efforts in spay and neuter services and educating the public on the benefits of spaying and neutering animals.
Spaying and neutering your companion animals is the humane solution to reducing the number of homeless animals and reducing the animal population in our community’s overcrowded shelters. Our medical team is comprised of a staff veterinarian, contract veterinarians, and a highly trained and compassionate medical support team who perform more than 6,000 spay and neuter services each year.
Several times each year, the Humane Society of Manatee County receives grant funding that allows us the opportunity to offer low-cost and no-cost surgeries available to the public. You can simply click the link above to conveniently book your appointment online or call 941-747-8808 Option #1 to speak with a Customer Service Representative about the available funding and scheduling an appointment.
Spay and neuter surgeries are veterinary procedures that require minimal hospitalization and yet offer lifetime medical and behavioral benefits for the animal. Spaying a female animal involves removing the ovaries and uterus, and the benefits include preventing reproduction, as well as preventing uterine infections, uterine cancer, and breast cancer.
Neutering a male animal involves removing the testes, and in addition to stopping reproduction, it also prevents testicular cancer. Neutering a male dog also has numerous behavioral benefits, minimizes marking, and reduces mounting and roaming behaviors. Common myths associated with spaying and neutering animals, such as weight gain or negative behavioral changes are simply just that, myths. A proper diet and appropriate exercise following surgery will ensure a fit and healthy pet for many years to come.
The health benefits related to spaying and neutering your animal can also help reduce the cost of your animal’s veterinary care. Fixed animals are less prone to a variety of diseases and spaying and neutering your pet costs less than raising a litter of kittens or puppies.
