Spay / Neuter

Spay or neutuer your pet! Overpopulation of dogs/cats is a worldwide issue. Dallas is no exception. One way to address this concern was to pass a spay/neuter ordinance. Effective October 25, 2008, all dogs and cats in the City of Dallas must either be spayed/neutered or need to obtain an Intact Animal Permit.

There are a few, select exemptions to this ordinance:

  • Dogs and cats under six (6) months of age;
  • Dogs and cats unable to be spayed/neutered or is permanently non-fertile for health reasons;
  • Service animals;
  • Competition cat or competition dog;
  • Dogs and cats for adoption at Dallas Animal Services, other animal welfare groups, or for sale in licensed retail pet stores; or
  • Owners holding a valid Intact Animal Permit
