Pasado's Safehaven Spay and Neuter Station
NOTE: No sick animals can be brought
to the Spay Station. Please take them to your local vet and get them
healthy before you bring them for Spay or Neuter surgery. We
have a responsibility to every animal who boards our facility, and
cross-contamination from canine or feline diseases or sicknesses is
a threat to all who use our services…including your own pets.
Steps to fixing your pet… (Please read before visiting
the Spay Station):
1. DO NOT GIVE FOOD OR WATER AFTER 10PM THE NIGHT BEFORE
UNLESS UNDER 5 LBS.

arrive wearing a well-fitting collar and be on a leash. No dogs
over 70lbs, due to space limitations.
- Cats: must be at least 2 lbs and arrive in
their own secure carrier or box (PLEASE…one cat/per carrier).
Carrier MUST be in good working condition, and able to securely
contain the animal. If a cat escapes a carrier/box, we cannot
be held responsible. Cats who arrive in humane live traps need
to go home in a secure carrier, not a trap.
