This clinic offers full service care. Tell your friends they have a clinic that serves Douglas, AZ too.
This clinic has limited additional services and is not full service, although has a board certified surgeon and specializes in low cost surgical procedures that other
low cost spay/neuter clinics don't offer such as cherry eye and mass removal.
Their spay/neuter rates are slightly higher, especially for larger dogs, but they offer full service care and serve the East side.
Free, small additional fees or negotiable co-pays
A program that offers free spay/neuter in select areas and neighborhoods AND for the pets of people on AHCCCS.
Choose which clinic best accommodates your needs. Most participating clinics cover the full cost of surgery including in heat fees, pregnancy terminations and
cryptorchidism (undescended testicles), but be sure to ask individual clinics about possible additional charges which can vary by clinic. On occasion, some dogs
require protective e-collars ($10-12) if they're licking their surgical site and two clinics require vaccines at an additional cost ($5-23).
This link will take you to the PETFIX flier:
The flier gives information on eligibility requirements and restrictions. If you do not qualify, you may have a friend or family member whose does. Unfortunately, most
clinics have an extensive wait list. While the Humane Society of Southern Arizona requires mandatory vaccines at an additional cost ($23), depending on who is
scheduling, they sometimes accommodate more animals than the limit and can get animals in more quickly especially if they are in heat or pregnant. Guadeloupe
does not maintain a waiting list, but rather takes appointments on a first come, first serve basis at the beginning of each month until they run out of vouchers (usually in
under 10 business days).
