Spay / Neuter Assistance Program

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. 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.

Upcoming Spay Days are listed on the Calendar of Events. See details for changes due to COVID-19 regarding drop off and pick up.

Rabies Vaccination - Illinois law requires that all dogs and cats are up-to-date on rabies vaccinations if four months of age or older. If your pet is not up-to-date on their rabies vaccination as of the date of the Spay/Neuter Clinic, a rabies vaccination is required. If your pet is up-to-date, you must have proof of current vaccination.
