Low Cost Spay-Neuter for Dogs

For residents of Lawrence, Methuen, Lowell, and Haverhill, the MSPCA at Nevins Farm is able to offer affordable spay-neuter surgeries for dogs of families in these cities who are in need of financial assistance. Thanks to a grant through the Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC), the cost of the spay-neuter surgery package is $75 (except for services for Pit Bulls, which is free for residents in Lawrence, Haverhill, Lowell, and Methuen, or $50 for Pit Bulls in all other communities, per our Pit Pals program).  The surgery package includes the spay-neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, distemper vaccination, and microchip (a form of permanent identification).
