Bend Spay and Neuter Project employs five full time staff members and two part time staff members. Dedicated volunteers make up the equivalent of approximately two additional full time staff members. Each day, our team safely and efficiently performs 20-30 high quality spay and neuter surgeries. Our #1 focus is the safety and comfort of all of our patients. Each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States, and 10,000 babies are born, with numbers like that there will never be enough homes for them all. That’s why we are here, to provide affordable and free spay and neuter in order to prevent more puppies and kittens and create more homes for the ones who have already been born. Here are some ways that YOU can help!

- Donate. Your money or your time. The animals will take whatever you can give.
- Spay and neuter your pets and neighborhood strays and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
- Adopt your new best friend from a rescue or shelter. There are thousands of pure breds, puppies, kittens, senior dogs and cats all needing homes right around the corner at the shelter.
