Operation Spay Bay

*Due to the impact of Hurricane Michael on the Florida panhandle, this program has been temporarily suspended while Operation Spay Bay rebuilds.*

The “Neuter Commuter,” which provides convenient, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats, will depart from Dog-Harmony.

Owners drop off their pets at Dog-Harmony, 3906 U.S. 98, Unit 34, Santa Rosa Beach. From there, the Neuter Commuter takes the animals to a Panama City clinic for surgeries, then returns them to Dog-Harmony for owners to pick up.

The Neuter Commuter and clinic are run by Operation Spay Bay, a nonprofit that has performed more than 20,000 spay/neuters.

Dog-Harmony transports the animals for free. Dog surgery costs are $60 for 49 pounds or less; $80 for 50 to 99 pounds, and $100 for over 100 pounds. Cat surgery costs are $35 for males, $45 for females.

Drop-off is at 5:30 a.m. Pickup times are arranged. Appointments must be made at least one week in advance.

“The relationship between Dog-Harmony and Operation Spay Bay allows our community to spay or neuter their pet in a convenient and low-cost manner,” said Dog-Harmony founder Nancy Bown. “With this partnership, we hope to lessen the unwanted pet population in south Walton County and surrounding areas.”

Teaching our community proper pet care is critical. Unfortunately, many well-meaning dog owners simply don’t have the money for important basics.

To help out, Dog-Harmony offers a “scholarship” that pays for one neuter/spay each month.

All surgeries are currently done at Santa Rosa Beach Animal Hospital. If other vets are interested in participating in this program – please contact us.
