How to Get a Dog or Cat Spayed or Neutered

  • How to get a dog or cat Spayed or Neutered:
    -Go to our website at www.marc4change.org and schedule your appointment on-line
    -Call the MARC Message Line 423-240-9074
    -Leave a message that you want to get a dog(s) or cat(s) spayed or neutered, or altered.
    -A MARC volunteer will call you back, not right away but soon.
    -Our MARC Volunteer will get all your information in order for us to add you/the animals to the list.
    -MARC transports animals almost every week to a low cost spay neuter clinic. We go to several different ones because we cannot get enough appointments at one clinic.
    -The costs vary depending on dog or cat, weight, male or female. Generally the cost is about $40 for cats and about $55 for dogs.
    -Each animal must have a current Rabies vaccination or he/she will have to get one while getting altered. If your animal has a current Rabies vaccination you must provide to us proof by showing us the Rabies certificate you received when the animal was vaccinated.
    -LOW INCOME citizens of Marion County may apply for assistance. If you receive Food Stamps or TENNCARE or have some other proof you qualify as Low Income, MARC will spay or neuter your animal for free or for whatever amount you can afford. We ask you to pay whatever you can afford to help MARC help more people and animals.
    ** Also, check out our Momma/Puppies Program: MARC will spay mom for Free if you will allow MARC to vet and find good homes for all her puppies and you can keep your momma dog. Or MARC can find a good home for Mom too.
