In an effort to control the local pet population, PAWS of Grays Harbor is offering spay and neuter vouchers to the residents of Grays Harbor County for a fraction of the cost.

Visit during office hours (Tuesdays or Wednesdays 11am-4pm and Saturdays 11am-3pm) to purchase a voucher. We will then call Brady Vet in Montesano, WA to schedule an appointment for the procedure. All payments must be made at time of voucher purchase.

Cats: $65.00

Dogs: $75.00

PAWS of Grays Harbor pays a portion of the cost. If you would like to contribute more than the price listed above, please let us know at the time of voucher purchase. Brady Vet is only able to provide a limit number of appointment slots a week available at this price. Because of limited availability, it may take up to a month or more during busier times to get an appointment. Plan ahead and come in and get your appointment scheduled.

* You are responsible for keeping your appointment. If you will not be able to be there at your scheduled time, please contact Brady Veterinary Hospital at 360-249-3700 to reschedule at least 48 hours in advance. Additional fees may be required by Brady Veterinary Hospital if the animal is aggressive, or live fleas are found on the animal at time of surgery. This information is printed on the voucher.

Reduce the pet population.

Top Reasons to Spay or Neuter your Pet

  • It helps to reduce animal overpopulation in our community. Our community has a surplus of unwanted animals living in shelters and on the streets. Unwanted animals are often euthanized or suffering because of lack of care. There are millions of unwanted animals in the United States. Cats are 45 times as prolific, and dogs 15 times as prolific, as humans. They do not need our help to expand their numbers; they need our help to reduce their numbers until there are good homes available for them all.
  • Altering your cat or dog will increase their chance of a longer and healthier life. Your dog will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, cats, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.
  • Altering your cat or dog makes them a better pet, reducing their urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt. Surveys indicate that as many as 85% of dogs hit by cars are unaltered. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites; intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.

Benefits of Spaying your Female:

  • Keep males from coming around by getting rid of their heat cycle
  • Keep them at home by reducing their desire to roam
  • Reduce the risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer, especially effective if done before the first heat cycle
  • Reduce the number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies in our community
  • Help your pet live a longer, healthier life

Benefits of Neutering your Male:

  • Reduces or eliminates the risk of spraying and marking
  • Keep them at home by reducing their desire to roam
  • Eliminate the risk of testicular cancer, and decrease incidence of prostate disease
  • Reduce the number of unwanted cats/kittens/dogs/puppies
  • Decrease aggressive behavior, including dog bites
  • Help your pet live a longer, healthier life

Benefits to our Community:

  • Your community will also benefit. Unwanted animals are becoming a very real concern in many places. Stray animals can easily become a public nuisance, soiling parks and streets, ruining shrubbery, frightening children and elderly people, creating noise and other disturbances, causing automobile accidents, and sometimes even killing livestock or other pets.

  • The capture, impoundment and eventual destruction of unwanted animals costs taxpayers and private humanitarian agencies over a billion dollars each year. As a potential source of rabies and other less serious diseases, they can be a public health hazard.
