Low Cost Spay & Neuter Program
Why is Spay and Neuter So Important?
Many healthy adoptable pets are euthanized every day in Washington State because there are just too many animals and too few homes. The Kitsap Humane Society is dedicated to helping end this crisis by offering and promoting spaying and neutering.
The single most important thing that we can do to save animals from all the suffering and death that their overpopulation causes is to spay and neuter them.
Just one unaltered female cat and he offspring can produce an estimated 420,000 cats in only seven years. In six years, a female dog and he offspring can produce 67,000 puppies. So every time we spay or neuter just one animal, we prevent the births of thousands of animals.
The Kitsap Humane Society offers a Low-Cost spay and neuter program. Current Pet Licensing is required for your pet to receive the operation.

When Does Kitsap Humane Society Conduct Low-Cost Surgeries and What Can I Expect?
We will notify you by phone once your application is approved. We will call to set up a surgery drop off date (the day before the surgery is scheduled to take place) and a pick up date (the day of surgery). We schedule the dates based on your schedule and what is most convenient for you. We ask that the animal be dropped off between 7 - 8 a.m. the day of surgery and picked up same day between 2 - 4 p.m. When you arrive to our shelter you will be asked to complete an admission form upon dropping off your animal and will receive care instructions when departing. Our spay and neuter team conducts surgeries three days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All animals are approved unless they are over 7 years of age or a female canine over 75 lbs. Other the two previously mentioned animals, we will neuter all animals even a 200lb mastiff.
Before and After Surgery
The animals participating in our low-cost spay and neuter program go into their own room and kennel at our shelter apart from our shelter animals. The day of surgery our vet will complete an examination before administering any drugs and proceeding with surgery.
