What We Do
The Spay Neuter Project works to eliminate the overpopulation of cats and dogs in Jefferson County, TN. We do this by providing ultra low cost spay neuter services. We also perform Trap Neuter Return to address the issue of stray cats. No one is turned away. If a client is unable to afford the full cost of surgery, we can assist.
What We Have Done So Far
In 2018, The Spay Neuter Project facilitated "fixing" 200 animals:
Cats Spayed (Companion & Feral):  93
Cats Neutered (Companion & Feral):  71
Dogs Spayed: 16
Dogs Neutered: 20

What We Are Doing in 2019

For 2019, our goal is to spay and neuter at least 1000 companion and feral animals.  To do this we have scheduled two spay and neuter events every month!

As of Sept 26 for 2019, The Spay Neuter Project has facilitated "fixing" 787 animals:
Cats Spayed (Companion & Feral):  363
Cats Neutered (Companion & Feral):  310
Dogs Spayed: 56

with another surgery date set for Sept 28, we will surpass 800 animals fixed in 2019
