Low Cost Spay & Neuter Program

The Appalachian Animal Rescue Center, in partnership with the ASPCA spay and neuter clinic in Asheville, NC offers low cost spaying and neutering to non-shelter dogs and cats. Pets are dropped off at our shelter one morning and picked up the next afternoon.

Failure to spay or neuter your pet could result in 60,000 offspring over a ten year period. As a result, over 14 million animals, mostly dogs and cats, are euthanized each year in the United States. Many of these animals were found abandoned, stray, or in horrific conditions at their owner’s homes. We cannot stress enough the importance of spaying or neutering your pet.

Microchip Program

At Appalachian Animal Rescue center, every pet owner can protect their pet with a lifetime registration, for just $15. All pets are micro-chipped when they are spayed or neutered through our low cost clinic.The tiny microchip is injected like a vaccination, so it doesn't hurt the animal at all. It remains harmlessly under the skin as long as the animal lives. You can forget all about it... until the day, if it comes, when your pet wanders off. If a lost pet is taken to a shelter, or picked up by law enforcement, or brought to an animal clinic by the finder, a quick pass with a scanner brings up the identifying information that can reunite it with the owner.

To sign up, or for more information, call (828) 524-4588.
