Spay and Neuter Services

Our routine spay and neuter clinic days are currently Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You need an appointment for surgery. Schedules may vary during holidays. 

A spay surgery is the surgical sterilization procedure for female animals, and neuter surgery is the surgical sterilization procedure for male animals. 

Unless you have made special arrangements in advance, all animals must be dropped off during intake hours on the day of surgery and picked up on the same day. Intake hours for dogs begin at 7:30 a.m. and cats at 8:30 a.m. Pick-up is typically between noon and no later than 4:00 p.m. 

Our policy regarding purchased pets

Spay Arkansas is a non-profit charity. The benefactors of Spay Arkansas intend for their money to be used for the purpose of helping low-income clients by altering and vaccinating their pets. Donations from these benefactors support our services. Therefore, our policy is that anyone who purchases a pet establishes a relationship with a local veterinarian.
