The MSPCA offers special discounted rates for low income owners of Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes at the Boston Shalit-Glazer Clinic in Jamaica Plain, at our Noble Family Adoption Center in Methuen Massachusetts, and through the MSPCA Cape Cod Adoption Center in Centerville. Pit Bulls who qualify will receive a full physical exam, microchip, rabies and distemper vaccination and be spayed/neutered for as low as $50.
The Pit Pals Program offers direct benefits to dogs and their owners. Dog owners are required by law to have their animals vaccinated against rabies. Spaying and neutering your dog prevents testicular and ovarian cancer and also may help to alleviate unwanted behaviors such as marking, roaming, aggression towards other dogs and leg humping.
The Pit Pals program was created to address the high rates of homelessness and euthanasia of Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes in Massachusetts. The MSPCA Adoption Centers and shelters throughout Massachusetts see more Pit Bulls than any other breed. There are currently not enough homes in our community for the number of Pit Bulls who are brought into shelters and animal control facilities in our area. The Pit Pals program offers a responsible solution to reducing the population of Pit Bulls to a manageable number through offering affordable spaying and neutering.
The Pit Pals Program is only available at the Shalit-Glazer Spay/Neuter Clinic in Jamaica Plain, the Noble Family Adoption Center in Methuen Massachusetts, and through the MSPCA Cape Cod Adoption Center in Centerville. It is not part of the statewide MSPCA/MVMA Spay/Neuter Assistance Program.
