Spay & Neuter Initiative

At AARCS we advocate responsible pet ownership, which includes spay and neuter. Not only does spaying and neutering help 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 spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Overpopulation of pets in our province is a vast problem – become part of the solution, please spay and neuter your pets.

First Nations Spay Neuter Assistance Program

AARCS’ Spay Neuter Assistance Program (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 providing volunteers, equipment, and finacial support.
