The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies doesn’t operate any spay or neuter clinics in Canada. However, there are a number of spay/neuter clinics across the country that offer these services, usually at a reduced cost.
Typically, spay/neuter clinics are run by provincial animal welfare organizations, local animal shelters, rescue groups or by municipalities.
In recent years, there has been an increased focus on the importance of spay/neuter and many organizations have expanded their spay/neuter initiatives to grow trap-neuter-release programs and introduce mobile spay/neuter clinics, which are mobile veterinary clinics that go on the road to provide spay/neuter surgeries in multiple communities. These mobile clinics reduce barriers that some people face in bringing their companion animal to a clinic.
Thanks to increases in government funding and organizational and charitable grants, low-cost spay/neuter is becoming increasingly accessible in communities across Canada. If you'd like to work with your municipality to create an accessible spay/neuter initiative for your community, go here to access our accessible spay/neuter toolkit.
