Charting impact

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

To decrease pet overpopulation by providing spay/neuter, wellness, and education to the public. To increase the number of pets that stay in their home, by providing these services to help decrease owner surrenders to shelters.

No pet owner should be unable to obtain basic veterinary care due to their financial circumstance. Creating opportunities for owners to obtain these services through outreach and education.

We employ a variety of comprehensive programs aimed at addressing pet overpopulation. First and foremost, by making spay and neuter care affordable and accessible for Illinois' most vulnerable pets, we are combating pet overpopulation directly. By making affordable preventative veterinary care available, we keep pets healthy and in their loving homes, rather than in shelters. We also work directly with rescue groups in shelters to perform spay and neuter prior to adoption to ensure higher spay/neuter compliance in the areas we serve.

Spay Illinois began providing our community with affordable spay, neuter, and other veterinary care in 2009. Since our inception we have cared for over 110,000 pets and families, including over 1,300 feral/community cats, and continue to achieve more. Annually, our organization has the capacity to perform 6,500 spays and neuters and is well practiced, staffed, and equipped to achieve our goals.

Since our inception in 2009, we have provided spay, neuter and other veterinary care to over 110,000 pets and families and continue to achieve more, year after year. We've established and bolstered new programs, including our 100% Initiative to assist other 501c3 shelters in providing quality care to their animals on limited resources, Project Families Forever which keeps pets healthy and in their loving homes for life. Annually, we perform 5,500 surgeries and provide wellness care to over 18,000 pets. In the coming year, we intend to open a second stationary facility east of our current location. This facility will be four times the size of our current space and will provide double the number of spay/neuter surgeries as well as full service veterinary care.
