SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC

The Watertown Humane Society Spay/Neuter Clinic is an affordable, high-quality spay/neuter clinic open to the public. The goal of our Spay/Neuter Clinic is to reduce the number of homeless animals by reducing the financial burden that these surgeries can sometimes carry.

Before you visit, call, or book, please note:

  • As always, our services are by appointment only.
  • Our lobby is closed to walk-in traffic. To ensure the safety of our staff and clients, please do not visit the clinic without an appointment.
  • Lobby space is limited during appointment check-in and check-out times. We ask that you limit the number of people in your party to only those needed for the appointment; in most cases, that will be one person per pet.
  • Due to high call volume, you will need to leave a voicemail when you call. Please allow up to 3 business days for a callback on any non-emergency inquiries.
