Animal Rescue League Offering Pay-What-You-Can Spay & Neuter for Pets

Sep 24, 2021

Birdsboro, P.a. – The Animal Rescue League of Berks County is offering pay-what-you-can spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and owned cats thanks to a grant from Tina Saracino’s State Farm agency in Birdsboro, PA.

“Spaying and neutering your pet is an important component of their health.  Spaying can prevent many life-threatening diseases, such as pyometra (a serious infection of the uterus), and if done at a young age can also prevent serious mammary cancer later in life.  Neutering can prevent or reduce many detrimental or dangerous behaviors, such as aggression and roaming, which puts them at greater risk of being struck by a car,” said Dr. Jason Banning, Medical Director at ARL

The promotion is available for a limited number of appointments and includes rabies vaccine, microchip, and pain medications. Appointments are being accepted now.

Owners can schedule an appointment by writing to [email protected] or call 610-373-8830 x.640


The Animal Rescue League of Berks County is a charitable 501c3 organization caring for nearly 5,000 animals each year to help them find second chances in a new home or to help reunite them with their grateful owners. For more than 65 years, ARL has worked tirelessly to care for the sick, treat the injured, comfort the unwanted, and protect the abused. Whether helping people in need keep their pets through surrender prevention programs, offering low-cost veterinary services and clinics, as well as outreach and education events throughout the county, our work goes far beyond the walls of the shelter.
