Health Clinic

The HATS Health Clinic focuses on lowering animal overpopulation in our community by providing low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for Mid-Michigan pet owners. We also help keep pets in homes by solving common behavioral issues through spay or neuter. In 2021 alone, our Health Clinic performed 2,021 surgeries! We serve all pet owners, regardless of income or place of residence. 

Call (989) 775-0830 x3 to schedule your appointment! 


The pandemic has impacted our clinic operations greatly and there is a significant backlog of demand that we are working hard to keep up with. Surgeries are currently booked through 2022. Please call in mid-December to book an appointment for 2023.

Spaying and neutering just one animal can save the lives of many! In addition to responsibly controlling pet overpopulation, fixing your pet leads to numerous health benefits such as reducing the risk of certain types of cancer and possibly increasing overall lifespan. You can also reduce or eliminate unwanted behaviors such as spraying, aggression, and roaming. And let's not forget, the cost of raising a healthy litter of puppies or kittens far exceeds the cost of a single surgery!
