Low Cost Spay-Neuter Programs
in the Chicago Area

The United States faces a pet overpopulation crisis as millions of animals are killed each year because there are not enough good homes for them. Taxpayers across the country bear the cost of picking up, housing, and eventually killing these cats and dogs. Chicago has a severe pet overpopulation problem that results in many healthy animals being euthanized for lack of homes. There is a solution to this tragedy in which everyone can participate. By spaying or neutering companion animals, we can end these unwanted births and reduce the needless suffering that homeless animals endure. Be a part of the solution, not the problem. PLEASE HAVE YOUR PETS SPAYED AND NEUTERED.

Please contact these organizations directly for current prices and programs.
