The Alabama Spay/Neuter Clinic,
one of The Humane Alliance's high-volume clinics opening across
the country, opened in the Birmingham area on June 3rd, 2008. Our
goal is to stem the tide of unwanted and abandoned companion animals
by offering low cost spay and neuter surgeries. We are a 501(c)(3)
non-profit organization and will be working with rescues, shelters
and pet owners. Appointments are required and can be made by calling
Our address is 2721 Crestwood Blvd in Irondale. We are located just
off I-20, exit 133, near the I-459/I-20 exchange. If you are familiar
with the area, it is 1.8 mi east of the old Eastwood Mall (now Wal-Mart)
on Crestwood Blvd/Hwy 78, past the Golden Rule BBQ. We are across
the street from the Irondale post office and the AAA storage facility.
Look for our sign. Our email address is AlSpay@bellsouth.net and
our website will be up in the near future.
We are not a full-service veterinary clinic but will be giving rabies
vaccinations for animals without proof of a current rabies certificate
as is required by Alabama law. There will be a charge for the rabies
vaccination so please bring proof of the vaccination to avoid this
We have assembled a wonderful, competent staff, each with many years
experience. Our veterinarians and veterinarian technicians are licensed
and accredited. In addition, they have received extensive training
at The Humane Alliance training center in North Carolina. We will
be handling many surgeries each day but will not sacrifice quality
nor the proper care and attention that your dog or cat requires
and deserves. While we are a high volume clinic, we treat each animal
as if they were one of ours.
We are hoping to contact all rescue groups and shelters in the north/central
Alabama area but we ask you to help spread the word to other organizations
for we have not have been able to obtain contact information for
everyone. We will also be sending a press release to area newspapers,
television and radio stations.
Our permanent facility is still under construction but we were anxious
to get started and so will begin work in a temporary facility here
on our lot while construction continues on our permanent one. We
plan to begin surgeries with two operating rooms but will have four
operating rooms once our building is completed and will be expanding
our staff accordingly.
We are always in need of towels—any size or color as well
as paper towels. If you have some to donate we would appreciate
If you have any questions about the clinic we will be happy to answer
them. Please see the enclosed flier for our rates. We look forward
to hearing from you and meeting you in person. Together we will
make a difference.
