Surgery and Vaccinations

Surgery

**December 2023 Update**

Currently our schedule is booked through the end of February 2024, and we’ve been scheduling strictly from our waitlist.

Due to recent staffing changes, we are NOT SCHEDULING ANY NEW SPAY/NEUTER APPOINTMENTS and have closed our surgery waitlist for dogs & cats while we work through logistics.

Please check back in February for updates on the status of our waitlist and schedule.

In the meantime, we recommend exploring other options:

Call local Vet Offices for schedule and pricing. (For a list of local, full-service veterinarians, email spayandneuterclinic@eugene-or.gov )


Spay and neuter surgeries are done by appointment only. 

All female pets will receive a tattoo at the time of their spay surgery. This black tattoo is a small line that tells all future veterinarians and shelter staff that this pet has already been spayed. Many spay scars are small and become very faint or invisible over time especially if the surgery was done as a puppy or kitten. Tattooing at the time of spaying avoids the possibility of an animal having unnecessary exploratory surgery in the future.

Feral cats will have the left ear tipped (a small portion of ear tip removed) and the females will also be tattooed on the belly.


Surgical Requirements

  • We perform surgery on dogs and cats beginning at 16 weeks of age, through four years old.
  • We require the cost of surgery be paid at the time of scheduling. This fee is non-refundable.
  • There is an additional $15 charge for pregnant animals.
  • Proof of your dog's rabies vaccination is required to schedule their surgery. This can be emailed to spayandneuterclinic@ci.eugene.or.us.
    • If emailed, please include the dog's name, owner's first and last name, and the phone number your account will be under. 
    • If we do not have proof of a current rabies vaccine by the day of of surgery, you will need to pay to have the vaccination updated while your pet is in our care.
    • A rabies tag is not sufficient proof. We need to have a copy of the rabies certificate provided by the vet clinic who performed the vaccination.

The costs below are for a routine spay or neuter and include an Elizabethan collar (cone) and pain medication.
