Spay/Neuter Services

Spay/Neuter Services

The Humane Society of Charlotte has been providing spay/neuter services in Charlotte since 1982. The HSC Spay/Neuter Clinic was the first low-cost clinic in the Southeast offering high-quality, affordable surgeries. Spaying or neutering your pet and ensuring their vaccinations are up to date is not only good for your pets and your family but also creates a healthier community for everyone here in Charlotte.

Please contact us with any questions you have about HSC’s Spay/Neuter services. When you’re ready, simply contact our clinic to schedule an appointment. **Please note: Due to national and local veterinary professional staffing shortages, appointment availability is currently limited. All open appointments will be made available through our website.

Pets 7 years of age and older require additional bloodwork at a rate of $60 to ensure the safety and health of your pet during surgery.

Post-Surgery Care Instructions for Your Pet

Please watch this short video about caring for your pet after their surgery.

Your animal may need an e-collar if she/he is licking or chewing at the incision site. These are available for purchase at our clinics on the day of surgery.  You may also obtain at either your primary veterinarians’ office or a local pet store. Your animal must be kept indoors and on low activity for 10 days following surgery. Dogs may go out for short, supervised leash walks to use the bathroom during that time. Your animal can not have a bath for 10 days after surgery. We recommend bathing and/or grooming your pet prior to the day of surgery if he/she is used to a regular grooming schedule.

Your animal will receive pain medications the day of their surgery.
