Altered Tails, the Valley’s largest nonprofit spay/neuter clinic specializing in low-cost services, wants you to ring in the New Year by making a resolution to neuter your male dog or cat during their “Happy Neuter Year” campaign.

Sponsored by PetSmart Charities, the “Happy Neuter Year” campaign will provide $20 neutering surgeries for male dogs and cats during the month of January at the clinic, located at 950 W. Hatcher Road in Sunnyslope. Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for puppies and kittens as young as 12 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“Neutering male pets is a simple surgery that reduces unwanted behaviors, like roaming, fighting, and urine marking territories,” said Altered Tails Executive Director Ellen Clark. “It also guarantees your dog or cat never fathers an unwanted litter.”

This special $20 rate is even less than the organization’s normal low-cost price and is available to anyone who owns their male dog or cat. Pet parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Happy Neuter Year” campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability.

Altered Tails will provide 750 “Happy Neuter Year” sterilizations for $20 in January. Call 602-943-7729 or visit for more information or to schedule an appointment. Altered Tails is located on 11th Ave and Hatcher, and the main entrance is in the rear, in the fenced in parking lot.
