Our Mission

By providing affordable spay and neuter surgeries and wellness services, the Animal Birth Control Clinic promotes responsible, lifetime pet ownership and saves lives.


Our History

The Animal Birth Control Clinic is a product of the original organization, the Animal Aid Humane Society which was formed in 1971. The organization began to focus on many areas of animal welfare. The group worked with the Waco Humane Society Animal Shelter, helping with medical bills and spays and neuters. At one time, we employed an investigator for cruelty complaints in Waco and McLennan County. In 1983, the organization began working with local veterinarians to provide spay/neuter services to pets owned by low-income individuals.

In 1988, the Animal Birth Control clinic was opened to offer a low-cost alternative for the entire community to achieve a reduction in the numbers of unwanted and euthanized animals. Generally, our services are used by Waco and McLennan County residents, but we have many clients from surrounding counties also. Reduced cost vaccination clinics are provided monthly as a community service. These clinics require the assistance of approximately 20 volunteers. We are currently performing about 265 surgeries per week.
