Surgery being performed on a dog

Spay & Neuter

The Pennsylvania SPCA's Wellness Clinic & Surgery Services are closed until further notice. We will reopen as soon as possible, and encourage clients to please check here, as well as on our social media channels for additional updates. 

Spaying (for females) or neutering (for males) not only prevents your cat or dog from producing unwanted litters, it can help reduce unwanted behaviors and health risks, such as:

  • Reduce spraying and marking
  • Reduce risk of certain cancers
  • Reduce wandering and escaping
  • Increase lifespan

We offer same day drop-off and pick-up for surgery. Your pet’s surgery will be performed by a board-certified veterinarian and a team of experienced, compassionate veterinary technicians focused on your pet’s care and comfort.

We offer a range of surgery options to meet your needs and budget. Our standard surgery package offers the comprehensive care your pet deserves, including pain medication and an e-collar to protect the surgery site.

Make your pet’s appointment today.
