Low-cost spay/neuter program available to pet owners

Lafourche Parish residents are eligible for discounted spay and neutering services. Pet owners will pay a fraction of the total cost.

Visit the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter at 934 Hwy. 3185 in Thibodaux, or call 985-446-3532. Shelter hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Residents must provide a photo ID and proof of residency in Lafourche Parish. If the animal was adopted from the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter, documentation must be provided.

All appointments must be made at the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter. Email for more information.

The most important thing to know about spaying and neutering is that it saves lives. In every community in every state, there are animals sitting in shelters waiting for homes. Only about half of those dogs and cats will ever get one. The other half will be euthanized.

Each year, about 3.7 million animals are euthanized (American Humane Association). Five in 10 dogs and 7 in 10 cats in shelters are euthanized simply because there is no one to adopt them.
