The SpayOK team is dedicated to providing professional, high quality surgery for your pets at an affordable price.
The decision to spay and neuter is key to reducing the litters of kittens and puppies who are unwanted, become homeless, can be victims of cruelty and neglect, and added to the euthanasia of thousands of animals in Tulsa annually.
Additionally, pets who are “fixed” make better animal companions for their humans. The males roam less, the females are in better health, and both live longer, healthier lives. The team is glad you chose spay and neuter.
Thank you for joining us and becoming an important part of the solution to reducing our community’s animal overpopulation numbers.
