Each and every animal that passes through our doors is spayed or neutered. The ONLY exception is mares (female horses) but we do not allow for any of our equines to be bred. That’s the best we can do! The sad reality is that there IS a severe pet overpopulation problem and the number one way to address this as well as to stop the killing and suffering of thousands is by spaying & neutering all animals.
Middleburg Humane actively offers low cost spay/neuter services to people who love their animals but cannot financially afford to take them to their vet to help directly address the problem of an overabundance of unwanted animals. We work closely with each family as a team to help get all animals in the household current on vaccines, dewormed and spayed or neutered.
If you need more information or want to discuss this further with us, please complete our online assistance form.
Affordable Spay/Neuter & Medical Assistance
Although we are able to help facilitate some lower cost spays and neuters for people who care about their animal(s) but are genuinely unable to afford the expense of spaying/neutering them, Middleburg Humane does not have any veterinarians on staff and we do not have a spay and neuter clinic. Therefore, we find that several other groups are often able to offer much lower prices than we are.
These groups include:
Anicira Veterinary Clinic:
