Starting in May 2024, the KCK Animal Services team is thrilled to announce that KCK residents can now schedule spay/neuter surgeries at KCK Animal Services. In a partnership with the Pet Resource Center of Kansas City, KCK Animal Services will be hosting a regular mobile clinic to help improve access to these important veterinarian services.

"Increasing spay and neuter options for our residents and their pets will help us make even greater strides in addressing some of the animal control issues we see across the community," said Ashley Scott, Director of Animal Services. "From roaming pets to our stray population, we appreciate the work of the Pet Resource Center and look forward to this partnership."

Why Spay/Neuter Services?

According to the Humane Society, the average lifespan of spayed and neutered cats and dogs is longer than the lifespan of those not. This is in part attributed to the increased urge to roam among unaltered pets. Such roaming can expose your pet to fights with other animals which can result in injuries and infections, trauma from vehicle strikes and other accidents. 

Spaying or neutering your dog should reduce urine-marking and may even stop it altogether. Neutering solves 90% of all marking issues among cats, even in cats who have been doing it for a while. It can also minimize howling, the urge to roam and fighting with other males. By spaying or neutering your pet, you can help protect them against certain illnesses, perhaps address certain unwanted behaviors and save money.
