Spay Neuter

Our goal is to make Michigan a No More Homeless Pets state. All About Animals Rescue currently operates two affordable, high quality, high capacity stationary spay/neuter clinics in Michigan.

Spay/neuter ends pet overpopulation, keeps pets out of the shelter system and helps pets live longer healthier lives.

Why is spay/neuter important in Animal Welfare? If your house is flooding because a pipe burst - turn off the water. Sterilization is the quickest and most cost effective method available to reduce the number of homeless pets. Using national averages, it costs $500 per rescue pet and $5,000 per sanctuary pet. But for $50, you can sterilize one pet and prevent a multitude of homeless pets. Our society cannot effectively adopt or shelter our way out of the homeless pet problem.

Continued low-cost care and high volume sterilization is critical in alleviating the present animal welfare burden. All About Animals Rescue sterilized 250,000 cats and dogs since forming in 2005. More than 34,000 pets were fixed in 2019.

All About Animals Adoption program serves to find loving and caring homes for animals in need.   AAAR has established policies, standard forms and foster guidelines to facilitate the process. AAAR holds adoption events and has participated in some of the largest adoption events in the country such as “Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo” and “Pet-a-Palooza.” AAAR relies upon foster care families who provide temporary homes to adoptable and treatable animals until they are placed in their forever home. We adopted out 290 dogs and cats to new homes.

Our stationary and traveling Wellness Clinics provide basic wellness care to keep pets healthy and in the home. Many pets receive medical treatment who would never get care otherwise.  AAAR has been able to vaccinate and treat over 50,000 cats and dogs annually.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

No more homeless pets - prevent unwanted litters, keep pets in the homes that love them and out of shelters.

We focus on the fundamentals – high volume sterilization, adoption, healthcare, education and keeping pets in the family.

Spay/neuter is the most cost effective and quickest way to reduce pet overpopulation. We provide high volume, high quality, no cost to low cost, spay/neuter to the public, rescues, shelters and animal control.

Through foster homes, we give homeless animals a safe place until their forever home is found.

We offer low cost walk-in wellness care and traveling wellness clinics to keep pets healthy and in the home.

We cross the transportation barrier by providing access to both spay/neuter and wellness care through use of our pet transport vans and our mobile spay/neuter unit. We also run the Spay Michigan Hotline to help pet parents find their nearest affordable spay/neuter options.

We run the Detroit Pets For Life program and utilize this ideology in all the communities we touch. We strengthen the human-pet bond and give at risk pet parents access to resources needed to take better care of their pets.

We offer comprehensive Community Cat management solutions to the public and Return to Field for animal control.

We partner with cities to provide large scale wellness clinics increasing the number of pets licensed and vaccinated for rabies in their county.

We have 4 wellness clinics that provide low cost wellness care and serve as outreach posts to target areas in need of spay/neuter.

We utilize 5 transport vans and a mobile surgery unit to bring sterilization to under-served communities.

Our 2 largest wellness clinics also function as our spay/neuter surgery centers; with a current capacity of over 30,000 sterilizations a year. We spay/neuter cats and dogs 5 to 6 days a week and follow the ASPCA/Humane Alliance model.

Besides our stationary wellness clinics, we hold low-cost traveling wellness clinics through out the year to provide affordable preventative care and outreach to pet parents.

We offer Trap Neuter Return training, winter sheltering building workshops, humane trap equipment loans and affordable sterilization to both the public and municipalities.

Since the rescue formed in June of 2005, we have successfully sterilized over 280,000 cats and dogs at no-cost to low-cost. In 2020, over 31,000 cats and dogs were sterilized.

Through our general wellness care efforts, over 50,000 pets are vaccinated and treated each year.

Our Community Cat Trap Neuter Return training classes have helped over 4,000 people learn responsible community cat management techniques. An average of 7,000 community cats are returned to their outdoor homes each year; reproductive free, healthy and alive, instead of being euthanized in local shelters.

During the past few years, through our Detroit Pets For Life program, over 2,000 cats and dogs have been sterilized and provided with the provisions needed to keep them in the home of undeserved pet parents who love them. At the time we met these pets, only 3% were sterilized, 20% had been to a veterinarian and 12% had ever received a vaccination.

We look to continue to serve communities in a fashion that reduces pet homelessness and euthanasia.
