Spay and Neuter

The Tuscarawas County Humane Society and the Rascal Unit work together to provide low cost spay and neutering for your animal. If your pet has not already been sterilized, we highly recommend that you contact our shelter. Having your pet spayed or neutered can help prevent the tragedy of pet overpopulation, facilitate training and improve your pet's health.

The Rascal Unit is a mobile, low-cost pet sterilization unit that comes to the area every few months. In addition to sterilization, the Rascal Unit also provides low-cost vaccinations and general examinations.

Pick a date above that is convenient for you to bring your pet in for surgery.

Mail a $35 non-refundable deposit ($5 of this is going to rental fee of the building, $30 will go towards the cost of your surgery), your name, address, phone number and whether your pet is a dog or cat, male or female, approximate weight of dog, and preferred surgery date to:

1432 Tall Timber Rd NE
New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663

Make checks payable to: Tuscarawas County Humane Society

You must send the deposit to get a surgery appointment scheduled. This will guarantee you a slot, but the date is not guaranteed. Deposit is nonrefundable.

When your deposit is received, you will be mailed back confirmation of your pet's surgery date, location of spay/neuter clinic, pre-surgery instructions, and what to expect the day of surgery.

The surgery appointments for a given date are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis, so send your deposit and contact information in as soon as possible to assure you get the date you want. If your deposit is received for a particular date that is full, then you will be given the next available date.
