Population Control (Spay/Neuter)

Operation: Reduce Population is our low cost spay/neuter program for pets in our community. This low cost program is designed to reduce the number of unwanted animals in our community. Spaying/neutering your animal is an EXTREMELY important part of its care. By doing so, your animal will typically want to stay home more, be less aggressive, and not contribute to the overpopulation problem that exists in Terrebonne Parish and so many other places. The staff of TPAS understands that the COST of the spay/neuter surgery is the PRIMARY reason that owners give for not spaying/neutering their pets. Now, there is an AFFORDABLE option for those who are interested.
