How the Spay/Neuter Clinic OperatesHow the Spay/Neuter Clinic Operates

  • Based on a business and operational model developed by Humane Alliance: low cost, high-quality, high-volume, and self-sustaining.

  • Toronto Humane Society Spay/Neuter and Vaccination Services are open to citizens of Toronto and the GTA needing veterinary services for their pet cats and dogs. We do not accept breeders at these clinics, thank you for your understanding.
  • Please note that we do not provide surgical services for rabbits.
  • All animals must be healthy and between the ages of 3months – 6 years. For further eligibility requirements please read our FAQ & pet eligibility requirements handout.
  • All patients are dropped off at 7:00am and picked up at 4:00pm unless otherwise instructed.
