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.
Best Friends Animal Society has two spay/neuter clinics in the Wasatch Front area, one in Weber County and the other in Utah County. See the clinic information tab above and make an appointment.
Thanks to our generous donors and support from PetSmart Charities, who make our clinics possible!

Spay/neuter for feral and stray cats
Best Friends Spay/Neuter Clinic in Orem
Spay/neuter services for feral and stray cats (aka community cats) are available on a walk-in basis Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Up to 10 cats will be admitted each day on a first-come, first-served basis. Services are offered free of charge, but donations are encouraged to help support the program.
The Orem clinic also hosts Spay Days that are specifically for community cats; 50 appointments are available per Spay Day. The next Spay Day is Saturday, October 26.
If you are a community cat caregiver or trapper and would like to reserve one of the 50 Spay Day appointments, fill out a request form. Please note that filling out a request form does not guarantee an appointment. Available appointments are given to the first applicants. If you get an appointment, we’ll email a confirmation to you.
Instructions for bringing feral and stray cats to the clinics
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. To rent or obtain more humane cat traps or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
