Williamson County Animal Center offers a free income-based spay/neuter program for some dogs belonging to county residents.

Spaying or Neutering Your Dog

Besides the obvious goal of preventing unwanted litters, spaying or neutering your dog can result in both medical and behavioral benefits.

Medical Benefits

Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life. Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which often can be cancerous. For neutered males, the possibility of testicular cancer is eliminated and some prostate problems reduced.

Behavioral Benefits

Your spayed female will not go into heat, avoiding yowling or excessive urination around the house. Neutered males are less likely to mark their territory by spraying strong-smelling urine. Neutering prevents male dogs from roaming in search of a mate, and can help avoid aggression problems.

Program Qualifications

The spay or neuter surgery is provided free of charge to Williamson County residents meeting the income, size and breed qualifications. *Proof of income required.
