Mongrel Desexing Programme

Animal Birth Control is key to reducing the stray animal population. Many dogs can be found wandering around construction sites and villages in areas such as the New Territories and allowed to breed freely. Without neutering, the pitiful unwanted puppies of these dogs are often abandoned on the streets whilst their parents remain sadly vulnerable to disease, car accidents, and malnourishment. They can also be perceived as a nuisance by communities and this may subject them to abuse.

SPCA launched the Mongrel Desexing Programme to help improve the welfare of these at-risk animals and to assist communities in combating the stray animal problem by ending the cycle of proliferation. Under this initiative, mongrels can be spayed and neutered free-of-charge at Welfare Desexing Clinic located in Fairview Park, Yuen Long.

Each month the SPCA is providing the opportunity for target dogs to be neutered
free of charge under the Community Dog Programme.

Eligible dogs must be:

  • Mongrels
  • Aged between 4 months and 7 years
  • Healthy (not obese)
  Desexing surgeries can be booked at any of the following clinics:
SPCA Welfare Desexing Centre
Address:  Fairview Park Main Road L3250 B8RP, San Tin, Yuen Long
Phone: 2593 5438
Animal Welfare Vehicle
Phone: 2232 5513

*Bookings at Hong Kong, Kowloon, Sai Kung, Hang Hau, Mui Wo and Cheung Chau are temporarily suspended until further notice.

Rabies vaccination and dog licensing is strongly recommended and is available free of charge under this programme to encourage responsible dog ownership.

Terms and Condition:

  1. A mongrel dog is defined as not a pedigree dog or not obvious cross breed.
  2. The determination of the dogs’ breed is at the discretion of SPCA veterinary surgeon.
  3. If the dog fails to qualify for the programme, the option of desexing is still present, however normal desexing fees will be applied.
  4. Allocation of desexing slots will be done on a first come first served basis. There are limited slots available.
  5. Due to limited slots – the owner/agent must request for a mongrel desex at the time of booking – it cannot be applied for on the desexing day or after surgery.
  6. Failure to utilise an allocation (no show) or over applying for slots, may result in applicants/owners being barred from future use of the programme.
  7. Dogs de-sexed under this scheme must be identifiable by microchip. If the dog is not already micro-chipped and licenced or will not be micro-chipped and licenced then an ISO microchip will be implanted purely for identification purposes. This is a compulsory requirement of the scheme.
  8. The SPCA reserves the right to alter the terms and conditions of this scheme and its determination on the right to use the SPCA's services is final.
  9. The English version of these Terms and Conditions shall prevail wherever there is a discrepancy between the English and the Chinese versions.
