Spay & Neuter

A Stitch in Time Saves Nine… or Ten… or Eleven…
A pair of scissors, thread, and a needle are all it takes to fix a torn hem before it’s completely unravelled. Your veterinarian can use those same tools to “fix” your dog and to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem. It’s a simple solution to prevent millions of unwanted animals from being born to a fate that often ends with a needle of another kind.

Dog Overpopulation is a Problem
Every year, thousands of unwanted dogs are put to sleep across Barbados. Many of these are the result of accidental breeding by free-roaming, un-neutered dogs. The more dogs spayed or neutered, the fewer will have to be destroyed.

Why your female dog should be spayed:
- No heat cycles
– Less desire to roam
– Risk of mammary gland tumours, ovarian and/or uterine cancers reduced or eliminated
– Number of unwanted animals is at an all time high

Why your male pet should be neutered:
- Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking
– Less desire to roam
– Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated
– Number of unwanted animals is at an all time high

The Ark Pro-Neutering Programme
With the ever growing population of unwanted, and uncared for, dogs in Barbados, we abide by a strict pro-neutering programme where we ensure that every adult dog in our care is neutered before being re-homed. Should we re-home a puppy, when it becomes of age, we will remind the new owner, and with follow-up checks, to ensure that this has been organised. Never will we allow for an Ark dog to be bred.

Low Cost SPAY & NEUTER
We run a low cost SPAY/NEUTER programme aimed at reducing the unwanted litters of domestic animals. Every dog neutered through participation in this scheme is issued a NEUTER certificate which enables the owner to license the dog for a one time fee of $5.00.

It’s always the responsible choice to neuter your dog – help reduce the overpopulation and please spay or neuter your dog. For low cost spay/neuter services, please contact us today.
