Spay or neuter your pets now! Make a Spay / Neuter Clinic Donation
You can save millions of innocent lives by preventing your pets from breeding. Many animals die simply because too many are born. Help prevent the overpopulation of domestic animals by having your pet spayed or neutered.
HSCI offers $30.00 Spay Days for cats and $75.00 Spay Days for dogs. Upcoming Spay Days are listed on the Calendar of Events.
Spay and neuter enforcement is at the center of solving the pet overpopulation crisis, and is an issue on which the HSCI takes an emphatic stand. All cats and dogs are sterilized prior to adoption.

Families facing other hardships, please call the office at (309) 451-1000 during regular business hours to determine if you qualify.
