Spay-Neuter Information

Second Chance strives to manage the homeless pet population and serve our communities in many ways. Providing assistance for spay and neuters is central to that strategy.  Here are three programs offered to help ensure pets and community cats are altered and not reproducing.

1. Low Income / Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinics

Our low cost clinics provide spay and neuter services to the pets of residents in our service region. Clinics are held at the Second Chance Shelter and service 20-30 pets per clinic. Depending on income, cost can be as low as $20.00 per pet. 

Click below to begin the registration process:

Payment and a completed application must be received by the shelter before a spot can be reserved for the next clinic.

2. Spay / Neuter Vouchers

Vouchers for Ouray and San Miguel County residents provide a discount from the retail price at local participating veterinarian’s offices. If you are a Montrose County resident contact us for information on obtaining a voucher in that County.

Please read the program details listed on the Voucher carefully. Vouchers must be signed by a shelter staff member prior to making an appointment with a participating veterinarian.

3. Looking for Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Assistance?

We coordinate a Trap Neuter and Release Program for the humane control of feral cat populations. Click here for more info on TNR
