At AARCS we advocate responsible pet ownership, which includes spay and neuter. Not only does spaying and neutering help us control the amount of unwanted and euthanized animals in our community, it is important for your pet’s health and longevity.

All of AARCS animals are spay/neutered prior to adoption. Overpopulation of pets in our province is a vast problem – become a part of the solution, please spay and neuter your pets.

Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP is one of our many initiatives dedicated to offering affordable spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in Alberta. It is our aim to provide a sustainable and accessible program that will significantly reduce the number of dogs and cats without homes, as well as enhance the health and wellbeing of pets.

Through our network of participating veterinarians, we offer spay/neuter services for both dogs and cats limited to First Nations Communities of Alberta.

Spay Neuter Partnerships

AARCS partners with the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force to assist in their onsite spay/neuter clinics by providing volunteers, equipment and financial support.
