Donating just $25 can help pets like me go from the shelter to spoiled rotten!

LOHS is able to offer a low-cost spay/neuter program for our community. ​

The cost for a spay/neuter is $30 for an owned cat and $50-60 for a dog (depending on size). Feral or unowned (community) cats will be spayed/neutered at no charge.

The surgeries are performed weekly at the Athens Area Humane Society at 1030 Mitchell Bridge Road, Athens GA 30606.  A rabies vaccination is required by law for all dogs and cats and can be provided at the time of surgery for $20.

If the owner does not want a rabies vaccination, they will need to provide a certificate of vaccination from their veterinarian (we cannot accept a rabies tag as proof of vaccination).  We are not able to offer vaccinations or services independent of the spay/neuter surgery.

Feral cats will have their ear tipped at surgery, so the cat can be identified as being spayed/neutered, and rabies vaccinations are free for feral cats.

Our spay and neuter programs are made possible with the support of our donors and:​
