Animal Services offers no-cost spay and neuter surgeries to pets of qualifying households in Orange County.  

HenryMitzyLeahIt is the hope of Animal Services and Orange County that this program will increase the number of pets that are spayed and neutered in the County, and in turn help eliminate the ongoing problem of pet overpopulation we face as a community. 

If you are a DSS client or qualify by income, you can receive a no-cost spay/neuter surgery for your pet! To find out, call Sarah Fallin, Animal Services Program Coordinator, at 919-932-4966.  Qualification requirements for low-cost spay/neuter can be found here.

Thanks to a recently aquired grant, Animal Services is now able to help residents with a higher income to spay or neuter their pets!

Managing Pet Overpopulation

Animal Services Staff and the Animal Services Advisory Board have worked together to develop a strategic plan for managing pet overpopulation in Orange County.  Click here to read Managing Pet Overpopulation: A Strategic Plan for Orange County, North Carolina.

The intent of this plan is to support and promote targeted sterilization in order to reduce the number of animals that must be sheltered; control and manage the costs of animal services; and reduce the use of euthanasia as a means of population control.  For updates about these efforts, see the spay/neuter progress reports below.
