One of the most important health decisions pet owners make is to spay or neuter their cat or dog. Spaying—removing the ovaries and uterus of a female pet—is a veterinary procedure that requires minimal hospitalization and offers lifelong health benefits. Neutering—removing the testicles of your male dog or cat—will vastly improve your pet’s behavior and keep him close to home.
Clark County groups promoting animal welfare through the spaying and neutering of domestic pets may apply for funding. Applications are accepted January 1 through March 31 each year. Funding decisions are made by the Animal Protection and Control Advisory Board. Application form (PDF)
