1,500+ Targeted Spay/Neuters: A Huge Accomplishment

Petsmart CharitiesThanks to an incredible team effort and the support of Petsmart Charities and the ASPCA, we reached our goal of spaying and neutering more than 1,500 animals belonging to low-income residents of Philadelphia zip codes 19143, 19145, and 19146. This targeted effort aims to reduce the number of unwanted litters born and intake at the city shelter from these neighborhoods.


In all, we provided more than $75,000 worth of free and discounted spay/neuter surgery to the pets who were least likely to receive care otherwise. We thank and congratulate everyone involved!


PAWS’ Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic offers low-cost basic veterinary care to pet owners regardless of place of residence, including vaccinations, treatments for common conditions, and more. Attention clinic clients: because this grant has been fully spent, we are no longer providing our free spay/neuter special for these zip codes. If you are having trouble affording veterinary care for your pet, please contact our clinic.
