Get involved

If you love animals, or the people that care for animals, and want to make a difference, there are many ways that you can help us achieve our mission to promote and provide affordable, high-quality spay and neuter services for cats and dogs in an effort to stop the killing of animals due to overpopulation.

Ways to give

Giving has never been easier. There are many ways you can give and great opportunities to take advantage of things you’re doing already, like shopping or searching online, that can benefit Northwest Spay & Neuter Center.

spread the word

More than 60% of our clientele come to us from word of mouth. That is why your help in spreading the word is so very important! Please help us end the killing of companion animals by posting a Northwest Spay & Neuter Center flyer in your neighborhood, local community service location or pet store.

Educate Others

Help save lives, by bringing awareness and understanding to the cause of ending dog and cat euthanasia due to overpopulation. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that animal shelters care for 6–8 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, of which approximately 3–4 million are euthanized.

Share Your Stories

Do you have a story about your pet or your experience at Northwest Spay & Neuter Center that you want to share? Post it on your Facebook page or better yet on ours! We would also appreciate it if you would email us your stories that we can share. We often post client stories and photos to our website, newsletters, blogs, and Facebook page. There is no better advertising for us than word of mouth!

Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us to see where we will be in the community.


All volunteers must be 18 years or older. We also ask for a minimum of six hours per month.
