Spay and Neuter Programs
Pet overpopulation is an issue in south Georgia that requires the work of responsible pet owners and members of our community to prevent accidental litters and end euthanasia in the county shelters. The HSVLC has several low cost options to get your pets spayed/neutered. Please read on to see which program will work best for you and your pet!
TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) of feral cats
This program is designed for community/feral/outdoor cats to be spayed/neutered and given a rabies shot. Our TNR clinic is run every other weekend with a capacity of about 60 cats. Because of this, we do have a waiting list, be we assure you we are working through it as quickly as we can and we ask for your patience. Please click here to learn more about the program and fill out the form to be added to our waiting list. Our TNR coordinator will contact you as soon as she’s able. Please be patient.
- Feral cats can be fixed, given an ear tip and rabies shot, and returned for $35
- Owned cats can be fixed, rabies shot but no ear tip, and returned for $45
Low Cost Spay/Neuter
This program offers free transportation for 40 owned pets to Thomasville on the fourth Monday of every month. The spaces available are based on weight and species, not age. Please click here to learn more about this program and fill out the form to be added to the list. Once you have filled out the form, you will be sent a link to pre-pay for the service as well as instructions for drop off/pick up.
Pets will be dropped off at the HSVLC the morning of the procedure, transported to Thomasville for the surgery, and brought back to the HSVLC same day for pick up. You do NOT have to be a resident of Lowndes County to participate.

Citizen’s Assist Spay/Neuter
This program offers free or lower cost spay/neuter surgeries for residents of Lowndes County that receive government assistance. Due to very low funds, this program is currently unavailable. We have a waitlist and Lowndes County residents who qualify are welcome to come to our building to be added to it. If funds are available, we will contact people off of our waitlist to offer a surgery date. Read more about this program and qualifications here.
