Spay and Neuter
Why should you spay/neuter your pet?
Every year thousands of animals are euthanized due to lack of homes. This is a nation-wide crisis. The number of unwanted litters is cut drastically with every female spayed and every male neutered. Spaying and neutering also cuts down on unwanted behaviors. Females "in heat" will have a messy discharge, and may wander, in search of a mate. Unaltered males may become territorial and "mark" what they feel is theirs. Spaying and neutering will lessen the chances of some cancers.
Spaying and Neutering can be expensive. Are there cheaper options?
Once a month, The RASCAL Unit, a mobile low cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic comes to Ashland, thanks to the Humane Society. Appointments are required , and we usually book a month or so in advance. These clinics are low cost to everyone. No proof of income is required. Vaccinations and a few other services are also provided at these events.
