Unexpected litter? We’re here to help!

About the Program

If your female dog or cat is expecting or just had babies, we can help through our Mother Spay Program. 

Once the litter is 8-10 weeks old, we will spay the mother at no cost to you and find homes for all the little ones if you admit them to AWS’ Adoption Program.

Mom will stay with you, her spay surgery taken care of.

Benefits of Mother Spay Program

  • By spaying Mom, you ensure no more unwanted litters and you improve Mom’s health and quality of life.
  • By turning over (surrendering) the kittens or puppies to AWS for adoption, you remove the stress of trying to find home for the little ones yourself. Like all pets in AWS’ Adoption Program, they will be spayed/neutered, receive veterinary care, vaccinations and preventatives. Most importantly, they will be given top-notch care from the moment they are admitted to AWS to the moment they go home with their new people.
