Low Income Spay & Neuter info below:
From 10AM - 5PM on Monday through Saturday, the Humane Society of Angelina County provides low income spay and neuter for your pet. Households under $30,000 per year income qualify. Here are additional details:
Spay or neuter must be prepaid. HSAC needs proof of income and address. Address needs to match your drivers license or we need proof of recent local move. Light, gas, or water bill is accepted. There will be a $10 fee if you do not have proof of rabies vaccination.
When we determine that you qualify and have prepaid, we will give you a receipt for the low income spay and neuter clinic. Charge is based on your ability to pay(Please see bottom for break down). There is an additional charge for a female cat or dog that is pregnant or in heat. The clinic is located at West Loop Animal, and information will be provided at time of payment. The clinic requires a pet drop off of 8:30-9:00am and pickup is 3:30-4:00pm. Operating Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Be prepared to take extra special care of your returning pet - they just had major surgery!
The Low Income Spay and Neuter is provided by the TLL Temple Foundation as part of a yearly grant and the Humane Society of Angelina County thanks everyone who comes to participate in making this precious gift successful.
The cost of your spay/neuter varies based on your annual income, it is broken down accordingly:
For households that make $12,499 or LESS a year, your spay/neuter is $35 for a cat or dog regardless of gender.
For households who make between $12,500 and $19,999 your spay/neuter is $40 for a MALE cat, or $45 for a FEMALE cat or dog of either gender.

Keep in mind...
Many of us likely remember watching Bob Barker on The Price is Right. Growing us it was always pretty excited is I managed to catch it before school, or not waking up too late in the morning. And if you watched it more than once, you’ll probably remember at the end of every show, Barker would remind you to spay or neuter your pet so as to do your part in controlling the pet population.
It’s definitely very important that people do care enough to spay or neuter their pets. Here at the shelter we see so many amazing dogs and cats, desperate for a loving forever home. There is something you can do to keep so many animals from ever having to live in a shelter. Getting your dog or cat spayed or neutered as soon as possible is the best way to help.
Puppies are so cute, but they’re also a handful to care for on a long term basis. Adopting or purchasing a dog or cat should be thought of as a forever, long term commitment. If you’ve ever had a pet, you can likely agree that they’re a lot like having and caring for a child. And if you ask someone who thinks of their pet as a furry child apart of their family, it seems pretty obvious that they would never want to give up their child!
Pets are great companions, but they are a financial and emotional investment. We all pray our pets never get sick or injured, but animals do need regular checkups at the Vet just like you likely get checkups from your own doctor. Vet bills can be expensive, but also there’s the cost of food and toys, bedding, etc. Please keep these factors in mind and be sure you can afford your future furry friend.
