Spay & Neuter Services

In September of 2017, Aggieland Humane Society launched our Spay and Neuter Unit.

Since then, we have been serving families and pets from all across the Brazos Valley, reducing pet homelessness and saving lives.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The difference between spay and neuter comes down to the gender of the animal. Both terms refer to the surgical sterilization of an animal, but sometimes neuter is used for both genders. Spaying involves removing the uterus and ovaries of a female animal, and neutering removes the testicles of a male animal.

Spaying eliminates heat cycles, pregnancies, and generally reduces the risk of certain cancers that may lead to animal endangerment.

Neutering reduces the breeding instinct and can make pets less likely to roam. It also decreases territorial marking and other unwanted behaviors exhibited by male pets.

If you live in Brazos County and are currently receiving any form of government assistance, you may qualify for a low-cost spay/neuter procedure! Please note: you are required to show proof of government assistance on the day of your scheduled appointment.
