Spay & Neuter

Low Income Pet Spay & Neuter Program

The Utah FACES low income pet spay and neuter program is designed to help promote a healthy pet population and reduce the number of animals that come to Salt Lake County Animal Services each year. The program is available year round, but may be limited based on program funding.

Program restrictions
The pet owner must be a resident within the jurisdiction of Salt Lake County Animal Services and proof of residency may be required.  Jurisdiction includes the following: Salt Lake County Metro Townships, Bluffdale City, Herriman City, Holladay City, Midvale City, Millcreek, Riverton City, and Salt Lake City.  This program is for owned dogs and cats. It is not intended for animals with rescue groups or breeders.

What animals are eligible? 

Animals must be at least eight weeks old and weigh more than two pounds. Animals must not have signs of illness or existing medical conditions. Female dogs cannot be in heat.  If your female dog is in heat, please closely supervise your dog and apply for the program after her heat cycle. Female dogs over the age of eight (8)  and dogs weighing over 100 lbs do not qualify for this free program.
How to apply for the program
