SPAY + NEUTER CLINICS
AnimalKind was founded to build no-kill communities. Controlling the birthrate of unplanned cats and dogs is the single most important component in accomplishing this mission. A puppy or kitten can have her first litter when she is six months old. The gestation period is just over two months long, and each litter has multiple offspring. Without spaying or neutering dogs and cats, it’s easy to see how so many end up in shelters.
How much does each procedure cost?
- Cat Spay/Neuter includes surgery, rabies and distemper vaccines, nail trim, and ear cleaning $75
- Dog Spay (Dogs over 70 pounds will incur additional charges) includes surgery, rabies and distemper vaccines, nail trim, and ear cleaning $175

What does spaying and neutering do?
- Reduce the number of unwanted pets born
- Reduce the number of unwanted pets turned into shelters
- Reduce the number of pets killed in traditional kill shelters
Our targeted approach
Our spay/neuter efforts have been designed to assist low-income, under-served communities. We want to ensure everyone access our spay/neuter services. That means providing the surgery for free or at a low cost for pets of families who cannot otherwise afford it.
In 2012, we opened AnimalKind's S/N Clinic, the city’s first high-volume, low-cost clinic in Hudson, NY. Located in the heart of a vibrant community in Hudson, NY, AnimalKind serves neighborhoods most in need.
Since 2015, we have cooperate with the Upstate Mobil Spay/Neuter Clinic to go directly into under-served neighborhoods throughout Columbia and Greene Counties.
AnimalKind is making significant progress in protecting animals from euthanasia, creating an innovative approach to provide emergency services for pet owners in need, humanely reducing the overpopulation of unwanted animals.
