Spay/Neuter Fund
The CMPD Animal Care & Control Free Community Spay/Neuter Clinics were created to reduce the number of puppies and kittens arriving at Animal Care and & Control. We encourage citizens to investigate all spay/neuter options available for your pet prior to submitting an application to Animal Care & Control Free Community Spay/Neuter Clinic. The program is prepared to accept a limited number of applications from residents of Mecklenburg County only who are unable to provide for the sterilization needs of their family pets.

Animal Care & Control Free Community Spay/Neuter Clinics are being funded with private donations and grant money. (It is not part of an operational budget.) The availability of donations and grant money has been drastically reduced due to the unstable economy. Unfortunately, the clinics can continue only as long as funding is available. Once our current funds are exhausted, the clinics will be discontinued.  Please use your local veterinarian or the Humane Society of Charlotte's low cost spay/neuter clinic if you are financially able. 

To help Mecklenburg County residents get their pets spayed or neutered you can click here to donate online and ​select​ Spay/Neuter Fund.
