Why is Spay and Neuter So Important?
Many healthy adoptable pets are euthanized every day in Washington state because there are just too many animals and too few homes. The Kitsap Humane Society is dedicated to helping end this crisis by offering and promoting spaying and neutering. The single most important thing we can do for our pets is to spay and neuter them.
Theoretically, just one unaltered female cat and her offspring could produce 420,000 cats in only seven years. In six years, a female dog and her offspring could produce 67,000 puppies. So every time we spay or neuter just one animal, we are taking a huge step in preventing pet overpopulation.

When Does Kitsap Humane Society Conduct Low-Cost Surgeries and What Can I Expect?
Pets are dropped off between 7:30-8 am the day of surgery, and picked up the same day between 3 and 5 pm. (these are for regular low-cost days. Times for Cat Fix Days are different. When you arrive you will be asked to complete an admission form and given the option to add any of the additional services listed above. Low-cost surgeries are performed Tuesdays and Thursdays of most weeks. Pets must be under 7 years of age; females must be under 75 pounds. All pets must be free from known health problems. It is highly recommended that your pet wear an "e-collar" post surgery to keep them from bothering the incision site. These can be purchased at the front desk at time of pick up.
Is There a Program to Spay/Neuter Feral Cats?
If you have feral cats sheltering near your home and want to help reduce unwanted litters of kittens in the feral cat population, you can participate in our Trap/Neuter/Return program. Feral cats brought in for TNR are spayed/neutered, given a rabies vaccination, and ear-tipped (mandatory removal of the tip of an ear to identify them as already altered), for $25 per cat. Humane traps are available on loan. CLICK HERE for more information on this program.
