Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic Information

Licking County Humane Society offers Low-Cost Spay/Neuter to help prevent pet overpopulation in our community.

Our Spay/Neuter Clinics are held twice a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) at LCHS, 825 Thornwood Dr. Heath, OH 43056.

Those interested in getting a pet spayed/neutered MUST VISIT THE SHELTER to schedule an appointment and pay in full.

Clinics fill up very quickly and availability is based on type (dog/cat), sex, size, and the pets we currently have at the shelter. Females and larger breeds typically take longer to find space in the schedule. Once a clinic is full, registration begins for the following clinic. We appreciate your patience.

Senior pets (8+ years) will require a wellness bloodwork panel to be completed prior to scheduling surgery.

At the discretion of the veterinarian:

  • Any appointment, once made and paid for, may not be changed or refunded. 
    • If the owner cancels, is a “no show” or cannot catch the animal, etc, your fees may not be refunded and your appointment may not be rescheduled (at the discretion of the veterinarian).


  • All dogs/cats must be up to date on rabies vaccinations. If your dog/cat is current, you must leave proof of current rabies vaccination with your pet. Tags will not be accepted. Otherwise, your dog/cat will receive the vaccine at a cost of $15.00.
  • Cats must be in sturdy clean carriers (no cardboard). If there are multiple cats, each must be in a separate carrier.
  • Dogs must be on leashes. No aggressive dogs will be seen.

Services will be completed at The Licking County Humane Society – 825 Thornwood Dr. Heath, OH 43056 (Animal Wellness door)


Spay/Neuter Clinic Pickup Policy:

When we call you, please come at the advised time to pick up your pet. Your pet is anxious and ready to recover at home with you!

If you have been called and your pet is still here 15 minutes before the shelter closes, we will board your pet overnight for a $50 fee and you can pick up your pet the next morning after 8 am.
