Spay/Neuter Program

HSNEI’s Spay/Neuter Mission:

Provide excellent, accessible, and affordable spay/neuter surgeries that

-Prevent the suffering and death of companion animals

-Enrich the human-companion animal bond

By networking and working together, we can successfully
meet this challenge
as a community.

Many dedicated individuals and organizations in our area work tirelessly to reduce the number of homeless animals in our communities. Currently the birth rate far exceeds the amount of funding and resources required to get ahead of it. To reach our shared goal, we need to reach the 80% rate of spayed and neutered companion animals–both for colony cats and for household cat and dog family members.

More animals are born every day than there are homes where they can live. The estimated number of homeless animals in the United States exceeds 7.5 million, and thousands of these companion animals are euthanized every year.

HSNEI is focused on high-efficiency spay/neuter surgeries with the future goal of realizing a  world without homeless pets. These surgeries prevent the births of unplanned and unwanted puppies and kittens, and we will continue to work to increase the number of these births. At this time, we provide services for residents in the Northeast Iowa Counties of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek.


Be Part of Our Community Solution: Safe Havens for Our Cats & Dogs

Managing Overpopulation

Our work with other animal welfare organizations helps to perform more spay/neuter surgeries, which often shortens the length of stay in the shelter before moving to their adoptive homes.

Our service area is home to  almost 80,000 people and 13,242 households with dog and/or cat family members. Your partnership will help us to continue to provide these services.

We are continually striving to increase efficiency to keep prices as low as possible.We provide free and subsidized services for residents in the Northeast Iowa Counties of Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard, and Winneshiek.

We believe the way we treat animals defines who we are as individuals and as a society: animals matter--our pets are family members. We invite you to join with us to improve the quality of life for people and animals in Northeast Iowa.
