In cooperation with Portland Animal Control, People Assisting Animal Control (PAAC) will conduct a free spay and neuter clinic for dogs and cats for Portland residents only. The clinic will take place at PAAC headquarters, located at 5804 Ayers St. in Corpus Christi. A specific date is still to be determined. The clinic will also provide a free rabies vaccine for animals being spayed or neutered. 

To schedule an appointment, call or text PAAC at 361.248.2009; identify yourself as a Portland resident when making an appointment. Proof of current Portland residency is required.  

This program is made possible by a $250,000 grant from the Coastal Bend Community Foundation. 

10 Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet*

  1. Your female pet will live a longer, healthier life.
    Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast cancer, which is fatal in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats.
  2. Neutering provides major health benefits for your male.
    Besides preventing unwanted litters, neutering your male dog or cat prevents testicular cancer.
  3. Your spayed female won't go into heat.
  4. Your male dog won't want to roam away from home.
  5. Your neutered male will be much better behaved.
  6. Spaying or neutering will NOT make your pet fat.
  7. It is highly cost-effective.
    The cost of your pet's spay/neuter surgery is a lot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter.
  8. Spaying and neutering your pet is good for the community.
    Stray animals pose a real problem in many parts of the country. They can prey on wildlife, cause car accidents, damage the local fauna and frighten children. Spaying and neutering packs a powerful punch in reducing the number of animals on the streets.
  9. Your pet doesn't need to have a litter for your children to learn about the miracle of birth.
  10. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation.
    Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. These high numbers are the result of unplanned litters that could have been prevented by spaying or neutering.
