Spay Neuter Program

The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast’s Public Spay/Neuter Program is the largest low cost spay/neuter program on the Treasure Coast.  Every year more than 1,700 dogs, cats, or rabbits are brought to our Palm City Shelter Clinic by responsible pet owners that understand the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.

The procedure for dogs and cats includes: spay/neuter surgery, microchip & registration (24 Pet Watch), rabies vaccination (dogs/cats at least 4 months old at the time of surgery), pain injection and nail clipping. Addition fees may apply for cryptorchidic (undescended testicle) or umbilical hernia. Dogs and cats must be at least 2 months old and 2 lbs. for the procedure. Rabbits only receive spay/neuter surgical procedure and must be at least 4 months old and weigh 2 pounds (breed dependent).   

Effective October 1, 2016, the fee for a dog to be altered is $100; cat is $50 and rabbits are $50.

Since its inception in February 2003, this HSTC program has performed more than 17,000 sterilizations for publicly owned animals. To schedule an appointment or more information please contact the shelter directly at 772-223-8822. We require non-refundable full payment by cash or credit at the time you schedule your appointment.

HSTC also offers a Voucher Program that provides low cost spay/neuter vouchers to be used at a private veterinarians office.  Vouchers are $100 for dogs. The voucher can be used at a participating veterinarian in the area that have signed up with the HSTC program. The voucher includes the spay or neuter of your pet, a microchip and registration, rabies vaccination and nail trim.  Additional fees may apply at the veterinarian's office. Vouchers can be purchased at our main shelter located at 4100 Leighton Farm Avenue in Palm City seven days a week during our regular business hours.
