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

Spaying or Neutering Your Indoor Cat

Indoor cats are family pets that stay indoors year round, never venturing outside.    Besides the obvious goal of preventing unwanted kittens, spaying or neutering your indoor cat 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.

Program Qualifications

The spay or neuter surgery is provided free of charge to county residents meeting the income, size and breed qualifications.
