Spay and neuter programs in Utah

Spaying or neutering is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family and your community, and it is critical to helping to make Utah a no-kill state. These routine medical procedures not only help prevent medical and behavioral problems, they also decrease the number of cats and dogs entering shelters and free up homes for other pets by preventing unwanted litters. By getting your pets spayed or neutered, you are doing your part to help Save Them All. Read more about the benefits of spay/neuter and why you should spay or neuter your animals.

Spay/neuter for feral and stray cats

Best Friends Spay/Neuter Clinic in Orem

The clinic is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions and protocol. 

In order to preserve masks, gloves and other protective equipment for medical professionals assisting in the fight against COVID-19, the Utah Department of Health announced restrictions on veterinary procedures that are non-urgent as of March 24. With this order Best Friends Animal Society will be suspending non-urgent procedures, including routine spay and neuter surgeries, until the order is lifted. We recognize this impacts our entire state, and how difficult this is during kitten season. Best Friends is taking this step in support our human medical professionals but please know we share your heartache and concern for the animals. As we fight COVID-19 together as a community, we look forward to the day our organization can once again provide this important service.
