Welcome to Michiana’s first and only low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Pet Refuge has promoted spay/neuter for nearly 30 years. We understand that historically spay/neuter has been cost prohibitive for many, and the need for a low-cost clinic is an essential component in controlling the pet overpopulation crisis. The estimated four million cats and dogs who are euthanized every year in the United State...s could have been cherished family pets. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them. A solution is possible, and starts with each of us taking one small step: getting our own pets spayed and neutered. To help stop pet overpopulation further, consider adopting your next pet from an animal shelter.
Pet Refuge was able to open this much-needed low-cost clinic with monies awarded from a generous grant from PetSmart Charities as well the support of Pet Refuge. We are excited by this opportunity to give back to our community by offering low-cost spay/neuter services to pet guardians, people caring for free roaming cats, animal shelters, rescue groups and the general public with no income restrictions.
