Spay/Neuter Assistance

Meet Lindy!

Most animal welfare experts agree: spay/neuter is the most effective method to curbing the pet overpopulation problem. If you’re seeking high quality, low-cost spay/neuter surgery, we’re fortunate to have the international model for Spay/Neuter right here in Buncombe County: the Humane Alliance of Western North Carolina located in west Asheville. This international training institute performs more than 24,000 spay/neuter surgeries each year from our own community and surrounding counties. Teams of veterinarians and technicians travel from all over the United States to learn the state-of-the-art techniques employed by the Humane Alliance.
