Spay & Neuter

SPAY AND NEUTER DEPOSITS MUST BE IN THE FORM OF A BANK CHECK! We do not accept credit cards for this deposit any longer! Please come prepared!

Delayed Spay/Neuter

At MAMCO, we believe in doing what is best for puppies. Because of this it is essential that all dogs in our care are spayed or neutered. Breeding dogs actually shortens their lifespans and failure to spay or neuter can also lead to other health problems.

While we require that ALL of our dogs are spayed or neutered, new developments in veterinary medicine suggest that sterilizing a dog before 4 months of age can also lead to unnecessary health concerns. For this reason we prefer not spay or neuter our puppies until they are 4 months or older.

Spay and Neuter Deposit

We require a $300 deposit in the form of a check. We will NOT cash this check unless you fail to have your puppy sterilized by 6 months of age. Once your puppy has been spayed or neutered, send us a picture of the spay/neuter certificate via email. At that time we will void your check.

We realize that sometimes our partner veterinarians have a full schedule and that it can be difficult to get an appointment. If your spay or neuter appointment is delayed slightly, moving you beyond the 6 month date, DO NOT PANIC. Just send us an email to spay.neuter@mamcorescue.org showing us the appointment date, and we will make a note in our system to hold the check until the appointment date. Please remember to email us a copy of your discharge paperwork after the procedure to spay.neuter@mamcorescue.org. The vet will not tell us directly, and we will only destroy your check once this is received.
