With support from the City of Hendersonville and with support and collaboration from Henderson County, Blue Ridge Humane Society is able to offer low-cost spay-neuter as part of our Spay-Neuter Incentive Program or SNIP.

Pet owners must be residents of Henderson County in order to get their animals spayed or neutered through SNIP. Our current wait time for SNIP clients is 3-4 months for cats and male dogs. We have a wait time of 4-5 months for female dogs.

We are limited by the number of appointments available and the high demand. Please check out the additional resources that offer low-cost spay-neuter services for pets in our area. We encourage pet owners to contact the organizations listed below for complete details regarding price and appointment booking.

All Available Surgery Spots are Currently Filled. Please Check Back Later for Appointment Openings.

BRHS transports animals to one of our medical partners for their surgery. Drop-off and pick-up info will be shared when your appointment is booked. The $10 (non-refundable) fee must be paid when the surgery appointment is made. This fee includes payment for the surgery as well as a rabies vaccination. 

These other services are offered at an additional cost:

  • Surgery & Rabies: $10 (It is a state law that your pet be up-to-date on the rabies vaccine. Unless you have proof of a current rabies vaccine, one will be administered at the time of surgery.)
  • Microchip: $5-$15
  • Kennel Cough: $10-$15
  • Canine Distemper: $10
  • Feline Distemper: $10

On the day of the appointment, you must be able to drop-off your pet in the morning. Drop-off and pick-up times and locations vary based on your scheduled appointment, you will receive this info as part of your appointment booking.
