Low-Cost spay or neuter for your pets.

Service Pricing

The Shelby Humane Spay and Neuter Program is making some changes!

Our goal is to increase the number of community pets who get FIXED!!


Effective immediately, Shelby SN will be directing all calls regarding spay and neuter appointments to Alabama Spay and Neuter (ASN) Clinic in Irondale (205-956-0012).


Alabama Spay and Neuter Clinic will book your appointment(s) and offer transport assistance to and from the clinic, if requested, for an $8 fee. 


If you are a resident of Shelby County and on Public Assistance, Shelby Humane will pay the 

  • $8 transportation fee 

  • $26 for Rabies vaccination if needed

  • $20 to reduce cost of the surgery fee.


These fees will be billed to Shelby Humane by ASN

This change will allow us to cut our overhead costs.

That means more funds go to helping low-income Shelby County Residents access and afford Spay and Neuter surgeries for their pets.


Shelby Spay Neuter has been solving a severe animal overpopulation problem in Alabama since 2008 – a problem caused by pet owners who are either irresponsible or not aware that Shelby Humane has provided thousands of low-cost spay/neuter surgeries to the public.  The 5,000 animals received by Shelby Humane last year represent a 30% reduction of received animals just eight years ago.


Many pet owners cite high costs as the reason they do not spay or neuter their pets. It is the mission of Shelby Spay Neuter to provide low-cost options to pet owners in Central Alabama. Through partnerships with local veterinarians and funding from donations and grants, we are able to provide deeply discounted spay and neuter services. At times, we are even able to offer this service for FREE. With the Shelby Spay Neuter program providing such low-cost spay and neuter services, the barrier of cost is removed and our clients are able to make the responsible choice to spay and neuter their pet without financial anxiety.


This program is operated strictly with funds secured through grants and donations. We work hard to source the funding for Shelby Spay Neuter and ensure that it is used responsibly. Guidelines have been established and must be adhered to in order for Shelby Humane to continue this program. Administrative costs associated with this program are kept to a minimum as our focus is to secure spay and neuter surgeries. We work to ensure that every dollar possible goes straight to funding low-cost surgeries.


We also provide at least six low-cost clinics each year, offering vaccinations and microchipping for people that can’t afford regular veterinary care.  Veterinarians in our community have been an important part of helping promote a healthy animal population.
