Post Date:02/11/2019 9:50 AM

Back by popular demand: St. Lucie County’s Animal Safety, Services and Protection Division, in partnership with Operation SOS, is extending the Outreach Spay/Neuter Program by offering another promotion to the residents of the unincorporated areas of St. Lucie County to have their cats or dogs spayed/neutered and vaccinated for rabies for free. All participants must register their pets with St. Lucie County by purchasing a County License ($10 for a one-year tag or $25 for a lifetime tag) at the time services are rendered.

The program will take place at Indrio Crossings Plaza (Operation SOS will be parked at the south end of the parking lot in front of the Dollar Tree) on the following dates: Saturday, Feb. 23; Saturday, March 23 and Saturday, April 20. Drop off will take place between 8 to 9 a.m. with pick up at 4 p.m.

Participants must pre-register your pet(s) as space is limited. To pre-register visit www.OperationSOS.net. For questions, call 772-222-7717 (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). When registering, be sure to select the “St. Lucie County Program” on Step 2 in the “Income Qualifier Document” section. On step 3, select “St. Lucie County Voucher” in the “Add Package” section to get the Outreach Spay/Neuter Program discount.

Additional services are available including microchips, distemper or e-collars. Please let the Operations SOS staff know if you would like these additional services when registering.

  • Must be between 2 – 80 pounds
  • Between 16 weeks and 10 years old
  • Males must have both testicles descended
  • Dogs must be presented on secure a leash

All participants must provide proof of residency with forms of ID (DL, utility bill, car registration, etc.) at the time of surgery to qualify.
