Spay and Neuter Services

We know many of you are struggling to find affordable services for your pet. The veterinary shortage has created challenges for many pet owners in Montana, as well as our shelter. We strive to offer as many low cost services as possible to make pet ownership less stressful for you. We open slots in our clinic when staffing is sufficient to support the care of your pet. Please check the clinic calendar for openings in our clinic. We are grateful for your patience and understanding.
