If you sell items on Ebay, you can select Prevent A Litter as your charity and donate a portion of your sale to us! In turn, your listing will appear on our charity page for people to find. 

We are partnering with Yankee Candle Fundraising! Do you like Yankee Candle? Would you like to buy gifts for your family this holiday season AND help PAL? 40% of the purchase cost of each candle goes directly to our mission to end pet overpopulation.

Prevent A Litter is a fully licensed hospital dedicated to providing high quality, low cost spays and neuters. We opened in 1999 and have performed in excess of 97,000 spays and neuters! The mission of Prevent A Litter Veterinary Hospital is to eliminate the killing of healthy, otherwise adoptable companion animals simply because they are surplus and cannot be placed in loving homes.

 All you have to do is visit their online shop here and include Group #990098255 in the Start Shopping box to make sure we get the donation. The items will be directly shipped to you, so anyone can participate from now until

January 11, 2017. 

Since we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, consider making a tax-deductible donation. Your donation will be directly utilized to spay or neuter a dog or cat, or to cover a special surgery for an animal that might otherwise have been euthanized due to their owner's inabilty to pay. 

Your generous gift and support will prevent more unwanted animals from being born, while keeping more good homes available to those that are already waiting! With your donation, you are a part of what we do to help animals.

Saving Lives, One Spay/Neuter At a Time!

Unfortunately, we are currently full for routine dog spay, dog neuter, and cat spay appointments through the end of November. We received over 170 phone calls requesting appointments in one day, and we were not able to schedule everyone who called on the 1st. We are a very small clinic and we fill up quickly due to the demand in the area for our services. We will start to schedule our December appointments on October 1st. Please call us on October 1st and leave a detailed voicemail or come in on October 1st between 9am-4pm to schedule in person.

We still have plenty of cat neuter appointments available.

*If you have an emergency situation or special circumstance, please call us ASAP.
