I Need Help With My Pet


If you live in the City of Memphis, the law requires you to have your dog or cat spayed or neutered once they are over 6 months of age. There are few exemptions, and they are listed here.

Why Should You Spay/Neuter Your Pet?

  • It’s the law!
  • You won’t end up with unplanned puppies or kittens to take care of
  • You’ll protect your pet from some cancers and other serious health problems
  • Spay/neuter may reduce pets’ impulse to roam away from home
  • Spay/neuter can reduce some undesirable behaviors
  • You won’t contribute to the thousands of pets entering shelters each year
