Spay & Neuter Clinic
Due recent staffing changes, we have suspended scheduling surgery for dogs weighing 40# or more. We have recently RE-OPENED our SURGERY WAITLIST for small/medium dogs and cats needing spay/neuter surgery.
We recommend that anyone interested in utilizing our services, check our website or our Facebook page (City of Eugene Spay and Neuter Clinic) for continued updates, general information and pricing before planning a visit to the Clinic.
We thank you all for your patience and understanding. Caring for pets and providing low-barrier access to preventive care is our top priority. Trust that we're working hard to get back to full speed as quickly as possible!

Bringing your pet to the Clinic
New places, people and animals can be stressful for any pet, including pets that otherwise seem calm and friendly. For this reason we require that all pets are kept in a secure carrier (cats and small dogs) or on a short, non-retractable, leash (dogs only), with an appropriately fit collar, (that they’re unable to back out of), while on the Clinic premises. This includes while they are waiting inside your vehicle.
Thank you for your support in keeping all pets safe while visiting the Clinic.
One of the City of Eugene's public safety missions is to control the dog and cat population within the City limits in order to ensure a safe community environment.
The City operates the Spay & Neuter Clinic which provides low cost spays and neuters, vaccinations and flea control products for cats and dogs. The clinic is a successful prevention strategy in helping to control Eugene's overall pet population.
The clinic is unable to provide medical services to sick or injured animals. If your pet needs medical attention, please contact a full-service veterinarian.
For after hours care, please contact an after hours facility.
