Calhoun County
Spay/Neuter Program

The Snip-It Ticket Program, which is administered by the County Commission in conjunction with Alabama Spay/Neuter, began on January 2, 2019. As of December 31, 2023, some 7,123 vouchers have been issued. Residents in the unincorporated area of the County will be issued vouchers for the amount of $25. For those residents residing within a municipality, or its associated police jurisdiction, the costs will be as follows:

Female Dog Spay .......... $71.00
Male Dog Neuter ............ $56.00
Female Cat Spay ........... $56.00
Male Cat Neuter ............. $41.00

The exception to the above costs is if a specific municipality contributes to this program. The amount of participation will result in a reduction of the new amounts. There may be other municipalities who wish to partner with the County in the future but as of this writing, the Town of Ohatchee, City of Jacksonville, City of Anniston and the
City of Oxford have committed and will subsidize $15 per voucher issued from within its Municipal Limits.

Any Snip-It-Ticket Purchased before price changes will be honored regardless of price changes until the expiration date appearing on the ticket.

To ensure this program remains available to as many residents as possible, we will be limiting the number of Snip-It Tickets purchased to five per household and you must be a resident of Calhoun County. No other qualifying restrictions have been enacted at this time.

Please call the Commission Office at (256) 241-2800 prior to arriving in person to inquire about the specific cost at your location within the County. As a reminder, only checks or money orders are accepted. Debit/credit cards are also accepted but are subject to a 3% handling fee.

Detailed Procedure

Once a voucher is purchased from Calhoun County, the pet owner will need to call Alabama Spay/Neuter and make an appointment at either (205) 956-0012 or (877) 334-9738. When the owner makes the appointment they need to let Alabama Spay/Neuter know they have a Snip-It Ticket to pay for the surgery. If the pet is not current on their rabies vaccination, Alabama Spay/Neuter will provide the vaccination when they are there for the surgery at a charge of $26, which will be billed to the owner. If the pet is current on their rabies vaccination, Alabama Spay/Neuter will need the pet owner to bring the rabies certificate (not the tag) with them when they bring the pet for the appointment. Alabama Spay/Neuter will make a copy of the rabies certificate for their medical records and send the original back with the pet. There are no surgery surcharges under this program for weight, in-heat, or pregnancy. There is a $50 surcharge for cryptorchid males and pets that have an umbilical hernia, which will be repaired at the time of surgery. Both of these occurrences are rare but do happen from time to time. Any other additional service or vaccinations would be at the owners request and paid for by the owner.

Pre-payment in full is preferred for any additional services and the appointment will be made without the full copay, with the balance being due on the day of the appointment. If the owner does not attend their appointment and does not provide a notice of two business days of their cancellation, a charge of $22 rescheduling fee per appointment broken will be assessed.

Alabama Spay/Neuter offers free transportation to and from Word Alive Church, 122 Allendale Rd, Oxford, Al. 36203. Pick up is on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 a.m. and the pet is returned at noon the next day. The owner can also bring their pets directly to Alabama Spay Neuter at 2721 Crestwood Boulevard,
Irondale, AL 35210. If the owner chooses to take their pet directly to the clinic, they will be scheduled at the next available opening, at the owner’s convenience. When bringing their pet directly to the Clinic, the owner will need to be at the location at 7:30 a.m. and return the same day at 4:30 p.m.
