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.
**Update regarding our South Ogden Spay/Neuter Clinic
Since 2015 our South Ogden Clinic has provided more than 10,000 spay and neuter procedures for dogs and cats across the Wasatch Front. Throughout that time we have struggled to staff the facility, and stay open to the public, in part due to a national shortage of veterinarians and skilled technicians that all animal welfare organizations face. Due to these circumstances we regretfully announce that upcoming closure of the South Ogden Clinic location. We are grateful to our supporters and those who helped make it possible for us to have opened and provided services on and off for the past four years. With our partnerships with Weber County Animal Services and Davis County Animal Care and Control, we have been able to support both facilities in working with their outdoor free-roaming cat populations and close the gap towards their no-kill benchmarks and that work will continue as we build our partnerships with both facilities and the communities surrounding each. While we are sad to close this door, our commitment to support our shelter partners and work towards ending the killing of animals in Utah remains. Please stay tuned for future programming updates.

Instructions for bringing feral and stray cats to the clinic
Feral and stray cats need to be in humane cat traps. No pet carriers or wire dog crates will be permitted. Traps should be lined with newspaper and fully covered with a sheet. For trapping instructions, view this informative video. For the safety of the animals and staff members, only one cat will be admitted per trap.
