Spay & Neuter Programs Benefit the Community

Check out the stories of some incredible families who benefited from the spay and neuter programs Salt Lake County Animal Services has to offer!

About Us

Salt Lake County Animal Services is the largest life-saving municipal shelter in Utah. We offer a variety of programming to the community to maintain a healthy pet population. Through outreach programs and in-house services, we serve over 14,000 pets a year. 

Salt Lake County Animal Services relies upon the support of individuals, corporations, and foundations to help us educate and sustain a healthy pet community for the 600,000+ citizens we serve annually.


Raise your paddle and improve the life of an owned pet! Help us raise $100,000 to sustain our low-income spay/neuters for the 1200+ pets sterilized in our clinic each year. By spaying/neutering a pet, we prevent hundreds of homeless animals from entering the shelter. 

Our Fund-A-Need is a direct line to funding our Pet Retention Project, TNR, ACO Cares, and Free Feline Fix Programs! 

Free Feline Fix & TNR: Over 450 cats in 2023 will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped for free at the Free Feline Fix. An additional 1300 TNR/Community Cats will be sterilized, preventing hundreds of kittens from entering the shelter.

ACO Cares: The ACO CARES program helps Animal Control Officers provide assistance to those in need. In 2023 over 250 dogs and cats will receive low-cost or free spay/neuters and vaccinations from our clinic as a way to help deter pets from escaping in the future.

Pet Retention Project & More: The Pet Retention Project and other low-cost (or free) spay/neuter events, help individuals in the community who want to get their pet sterilized but can't afford paying full cost. In 2023, nearly 1,000 pets (& owners) will benefit from these programs.

*(This does not include the sterilization costs for the thousands of pets we adopt out yearly.)
