HIGH-QUALITY, Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic for Dogs & Cats. Thanks to the generous and caring support from the City of La Puente, HEART is able to bring these extremely affordable services to the community!
APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED and must be scheduled online (click on the link at the end of this page).
If you are unable to complete our online form, please call the City of La Puente for assistance at (626) 855-1555.
Space is limited and our clinics are meant for pet owners having financial hardships which may prevent them from acquiring these services at a regular veterinary hospital.
All pet owners are welcome; however, La Puente residents will have priority to schedule appointments and will receive services at specially reduced prices. Proof of residence for those living in the incorporated areas of La Puente is required in order to receive services at the specially reduced rates.

All pets must be current on their vaccinations. (Dogs: Rabies, DHPP & Bordetella / Cats: Rabies, FVRCP & FeLV). We currently hold low-cost pet vaccine clinics in La Puente on the second Thursday of every month. (View those dates on our website Calendar for pricing and other information).
All pets must be microchipped to qualify for our spay & neuter services. If your pet is not already microchipped, we will microchip your pet at the time of surgery (only $15), which includes lifetime enrollment of the pet’s microchip. (Our regular price is $35).
Pets must arrive between 7:00 am – 7:30 am. Late arrivals might not be accepted and pets on our waiting list will then be accepted. Pets will be discharged the same day of surgery and we will notify you when your pet is ready to be released. Please make sure that you provide us with your best contact number when you arrive so that we can reach you the first time we call or text you.
Do NOT give your pet any food past midnight the night before surgery, and please keep your pet away from toys or other items which it may possibly chew and ingest prior to the surgery.
We will not accept pets with fleas or ticks. Therefore, we ask that you apply or administer a flea & tick control medication to your pet within 30 days prior to your scheduled appointment.
We are unable to accept pets weighing over 50 pounds or any which are too tall or too long to fit on our surgery table. Pets must be healthy and we do not accept pets under 2 pounds or younger than 4 months old or brachycephalic (flat-faced) pets (breeds such as a Pug, Bulldog, Pekingese, Boston Terrier, Shih Tzu, Boxer, Brussels Griffon, Bullmastiff, Cane Corso, Chow Chow, Dogue de Bordeaux, Persian cat, or other pets which may have brachycephalic features).

*** The E-collars we provide are the standard plastic, cone-shaped collars to be worn around the pet’s neck which covers the sides of the pet’s face to help prevent the pet from being able to chew or lick at its surgical incision. These E-collars tend to be “clumsy” for some pets to wear. Many pets, especially cats, will not tolerate wearing an E-collar. There are other alternatives which you may want to try, including a Pet Recovery Suit which is comfortable and normally well tolerated by the pet; however, each pet is different and a pet could possibly manage to get out of it or potentially chew through the suit, so you must determine what might be best for your pet.
If you choose to purchase a different type of e-collar or a Pet Recovery Suit from a pet supply store, please bring it with you when you drop off your pet for surgery. We may also have some available for purchase at our clinic for $5.00. It is helpful if you reserve one at the time you schedule your pet’s appointment.
