Spay / Neuter

Spay or neutuer your pet! All dogs and cats in the City of Dallas must either be spayed or neutered, or the owner will need to obtain an Intact Animal Permit.

There are a few 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

DAS and our partners strive to provide free and low-cost spay/neuter services for Dallas residents. Availability of these services, however, is dependent upon funding, and programs and offers change frequently. Please call 214-670-8248 for more information, or visit us on Facebook at
