Calhoun County
Spay/Neuter Program



On January 2, 2019, the Calhoun County Commission is embarking upon a new process by which to offer spay/neuter procedures at a reduced cost to Calhoun County residents. We are hopeful this program will be a service to our residents while enabling caring pet owners to have a positive impact on a more managed pet population.

This program will utilize “Snip-It Tickets” in conjunction with Alabama Spay/Neuter to provide these services. The services provided through the county consists of spay/neuter of both dogs and cats. The cost to purchase a ticket is $15, which is well below the actual cost of providing these services and will cover the spay/neuter procedure itself. “Snip-It Tickets” may be purchased directly from the Calhoun County Commission Office by either check or money order.

To ensure this program remains available to as many residents as possible, we will be limiting the number of
Snip-It Tickets purchased to five per household. No other qualifying restrictions have been enacted at this time.

Detailed Procedure


Once a voucher is purchased from Calhoun County, the pet owner will need to call Alabama Spay/Neuter and make an appointment at either (205) 956-0012 or (877) 334-9738. When the owner makes the appointment they need to let Alabama Spay/Neuter know they have a Snip-It Ticket to pay for the surgery. If the pet is not current on their rabies vaccination, Alabama Spay/Neuter will provide the vaccination when they are there for the surgery at a charge of $16, which will be billed to the owner. If the pet is current on their rabies vaccination, Alabama Spay/Neuter will need the pet owner to bring the rabies certificate
(not the tag) with them when they bring the pet for the appointment.
Alabama Spay/Neuter will make a copy of the rabies certificate for their medical records and send the original back with the pet. There are no surgery surcharges under this program for weight, in-heat, or pregnancy. There is a $20 surcharge for cryptorchid males and pets that have an umbilical hernia, which will be repaired at the time of surgery. Both of these occurrences are rare but do happen from time to time. Any other additional service or vaccinations would be at the owners request and paid for by the owner. All of the additional services that are offered are attached hereto.

Pre-payment in full is preferred for any additional services and the appointment will be made without the full copay, with the balance being due on the day of the appointment. If the owner does not attend their appointment and does not provide a notice of two business days of their cancellation, a charge of $20 rescheduling fee per appointment broken will be assessed.

Alabama Spay/Neuter offers free transportation to and from
Pickette's Feed & Pet Supply, located at 3200 McClellan Boulevard,
Anniston, AL 36207. Pick up is on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 a.m. and the pet is returned at noon the next day. The owner can also bring their pets directly to Alabama Spay Neuter at 2721 Crestwood Boulevard,
Irondale, AL 35210. If the owner chooses to take their pet directly to the clinic, they will be scheduled at the next available opening, at the owner’s convenience. When bringing their pet directly to the Clinic, the owner will need to be at the location at 7:30 a.m. and return the same day at 4:30 p.m.
