Spaying/Neutering an EAPL Dog
Procedures for new owners for Spaying/Neutering their adopted dog
For additional questions:

Step 1. EAPL has developed a Spay/Neuter Team who will contact the adopter(s) shortly after the adoption.  When the dog reaches the age to be altered, we reach out again and send information on EAPL’s choice, Spay Today Healthy Pet Center in Lakewood.  However, if that option is too far to travel, please see the list of approved vets below.  The spay/neuter surgery is free of charge to adopters if you use one of the EAPL Approved Spay/Neuter vets below.  If you use your personal vet, you will pay for the procedure.  We can reimburse you for a portion of what you pay your personal vet (up to what we would have paid our vet).

Step 2. You, the adopter, decide which vet you want to use, and should reach out to the clinic to set the appointment.  SHOW EAPL AS THE OWNER OF THE DOG. Also, please show the dogs’ current name, and their old EAPL name.  i.e. You schedule Layla-Mitzie (Mitzie is her old name). You are the contact. Then tell us which clinic you chose and what date you scheduled. We write up an authorization for that dog to be spayed or neutered. The adopter also gets a copy.  We recommend you take a copy of the authorization along with you when you drop the dog off that morning – it saves the clinics from having to hunt it up.  It is very important that the adopters make us aware of which vet you want to use, and the date your appointment is scheduled for. Any delay past the due date, and we must have a letter, on letterhead, from your vet, giving the medical reason for any delay, and an estimated date of completion.

Step 3. Once the alteration is complete, you MUST send us a copy of the proof of spay or neuter. That is non-negotiable, and is part of your contract.
