Mission Statement

Spay Baton Rouge will decrease the euthanasia of companion animals by providing affordable spay and neuter services to pets of low-income persons in the greater Baton Rouge area.

Dedicated Non-Profit

Spay Baton Rouge is a not-for-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to decreasing the number of companion animals (pets) euthanized in our community.

About Us

Pet overpopulation is a serious problem in East Baton Rouge Parish. It is caused by uncontrolled, unplanned breeding of fertile cats and dogs, and results in over 4,000 pets being euthanized each year by East Baton Rouge Animal Control.

Due to the these alarming statistics, and after researching programs that effectively and humanely reduced the euthanasia rate of cats and dogs in other states, Spay Baton Rouge – a non-profit, volunteer organization – was formed in 2005. The organization set out to break the cycle of animals being born each year only to meet the fate of being destroyed.

What is a Spay Day?

A Spay Day is a day where a licensed veterinarian, vet technicians and volunteers work together to spay or neuter pets belonging to people that qualify for assistance through our program. 

Our Spay Days mainly occur at the Azalea Lakes Veterinary Clinic. They provide a Spay Day for us once a week (during their regular work week) as well as once a month (when their clinic is normally closed). We also participate in LSU Spay Days held monthly at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine.  

Why Spay/Neuter?

altEvery year, thousands of homeless animals enter the East Baton Rouge Animal Control Center. These may be strays that have been picked up off the street, or they may be the offspring of pets that people are unable to care for. Some of the animals are adopted by loving individuals and families, but tragically, the majority of those thousands of animals impounded yearly in our parish are euthanized. However, it doesn't have to be this way... there is hope.
