Spay & Neuter Clinic
(Updated April 26, 2023)
Bringing your pet to the Clinic
New places, people and animals can be stressful for any pet, including pets that otherwise seem calm and friendly. For this reason we require that all pets are kept in a secure carrier (cats and small dogs) or on a short, non-retractable, leash (dogs only), with an appropriately fit collar, (that they’re unable to back out of), while on the Clinic premises. This includes while they are waiting inside your vehicle.
Thank you for your support in keeping all pets safe while visiting the Clinic.
(Spays and Neuters are appointment only)
**New Hours - beginning May 1st**
Monday - Wednesday 1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Current COVID-19 Information
Our clinic is currently open and providing our full range of services. However, due to the limited space within the clinic and exam room, the building is employees only to protect the health of our staff and customers.
We are currently using a QR code system to allow you to get "in line" from your vehicle so you won’t need to wait outside. There are instructions on sign posts located at each parking spot, (all QR codes are the same), on how to add yourself to our virtual "line" using your cell phone camera. A self-serve iPad kiosk is available at the front table for those who are unable to use the QR code system. Once you have added yourself to the "line", a staff person will contact you by phone to finish getting you checked in.
Please continue to practice physical distancing.
One of the City of Eugene's public safety missions is to control the dog and cat population within the City limits in order to ensure a safe community environment.
