WHS Spay and Neuter Clinic

Opened in 2010, the Willamette Humane Society Spay and Neuter Clinic is the region’s first low-cost, high-quality spay and neuter clinic. Our clinic serves owned cats, community cats, WHS adoptable pets, and rescue partners. Since opening, shelter veterinarians have performed more than 55,000 procedures.

WHS is dedicated to ending shelter overpopulation by providing accessible, high-quality sterilization services to our community’s companion animals. By having your pet surgically sterilized, you are doing your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens. Spaying and neutering is recognized as the best defense against shelter overpopulation.

Our compassionate team is made up of qualified, licensed veterinarians, as well as trained, licensed certified veterinary technicians (CVTs) and veterinary assistants. We are proud to offer accessibly priced services, as well as reduced costs for community members on government assistance and free programs for community animals.
