Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinics

Our low-cost clinics are open to all Pennsylvania residents. We encourage Centre County residents to seek assistance using our voucher program, allowing more spaces in our clinics for out-of-county animals. Clinics are announced on this website and our Facebook page.

To participate in a clinic, you must pre-register and pre-pay (checks must be made payable to Centre County PAWS). Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins are not accepted at the clinics. Animals as young as eight weeks old who weight at least two pounds are eligible for the clinics.


  • Feral/wild cats are not accepted into PAWS clinics.
  • There are no refunds once a spot is reserved.
  • Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
  • Applications must include payment.

Please note:

  • Clinics are generally held at off-site clinic locations, not at PAWS.
  • A PAWS representative will contact you the week of the clinic to provide care/drop-off instructions.
  • You must bring photo identification with you when dropping off your animal for a clinic.
  • Veterinary aftercare is not available through PAWS. Visit your regular veterinarian for any needed or recommended follow up care.

You can complete the online clinic application form on this page, or you can download the mail-in clinic application form.
