Appointments for new spay/neuter clinic 

Volusia County Animal Services is accepting appointments at its new spay/neuter clinic located at 1250 Indian Lake Road, Daytona Beach. The state-of-the-art clinic provides low-cost and reduced-fee animal sterilization to residents of unincorporated areas of Volusia County and the cities of DeLand and South Daytona. Services at the new spay/neuter clinic are by appointment only. 

Residents seeking low-cost pet spaying and neutering must show proof of public assistance, such as a Medicaid, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) or food stamp identification card. Residents must also show proof of income and meet income eligibility guidelines, which are based on the number of people in the household and the annual household income. Prices range from $15 to $65 and are based on income. Residents who do not meet the criteria for the guidelines will be referred to another low-cost spay/neuter program. 

Services at the new clinic include spay and neuter surgeries, rabies vaccinations, and county licenses for owners of pets who live in unincorporated Volusia County and the cities of DeLand and South Daytona. Residents with cats that are spayed or neutered under the county Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR), Free Roaming Cat (FRC) and Return To Field (RTF) programs will also receive a feline distemper vaccination and ear-tipping in addition to the rabies vaccination.

For more information or to make an appointment, call 386-323-3575.
