About Us

Our Mission

To reduce the number of unwanted and stray animals entering our shelters by offering high quality and affordable spay and neuter services to under-served individuals, shelters, and rescues within our community.

Our Goals:

1. Be the best provider for spay-neuter services, vaccines, and preventative medications to income-qualified families.
2. Partner with animal rescue groups and local communities to control the pet population.
3. Provide pet food assistance. This enables families to keep their animals at home rather than surrender them to shelters when they can’t afford to feed them.

Our Values:

  1. Provide compassionate care to all animals as if they were our own.
  2. To be open and honest in our relationships with each other and those we serve.
  3. With a grateful heart we promise to be fiscally responsible with donations made to our organization.

What We Do

• Spay Arkansas was founded by Marcia Donley in 2007 and our clinic in Springdale, Arkansas opened its doors in 2011. Since that time, we have performed over 55,000 sterilization surgeries, thereby preventing the birth of tens of thousands of unwanted pets.
• Our independent licensed veterinarians and trained staff, with over 50 years of combined experience.
• Our pet food sharing program dispenses approximately 1,500 pounds of donated pet food per month. This enables families to keep their animals at home rather than surrendering them to shelters when they can’t afford to feed them.
• By working with partner groups and individuals as a care provider for feral cat trap/neuter/return projects, we are assisting in reducing feral cat colony populations in NWA without resorting to euthanasia.
• Our dedicated volunteers log thousands of hours each year to help us reach our mission.
• Money donated to Spay Arkansas is used directly to provide services for animals in need and we receive no local, state or federal governmental funding.
• We are making a difference for the pets of NWA. In 2011 over 38% of animals entering area shelters were euthanized. Along with our efforts and those of other animal advocate organizations, by 2014 this number had dropped to 15% and is now around 11%. Our shelters continue to strive to be innovative in their efforts to increase live return to community numbers. 

Every day we strive to make our community a place where companion animals are given the care they deserve and work tirelessly toward our ultimate goal of no more homeless pets.
