A Super Pet is what you get when you spay or neuter your dog or cat at Nashville Humane Association. Because animals that have been “superfide” are happier, healthier, live longer, and best of all, help prevent homeless animals in our community.
NOTE: Rover’s schedule and waitlist are booked for the next few months. We’re also in the process of revamping the program… stay tuned! When we are available for new appointments we will update this page and notify people through social media, etc.
Only $10 for a Rabies Vaccination (available with every surgery)
ROVER has completed more than 52,995 spay/neuter surgeries since 2003. Rover, the little blue dog, roams all over Davidson County in a BIG yellow bus looking to help qualifying cats and dogs with low cost spay and neuter surgeries. The ROVER bus (a 26′ LaBoit) is a surgical unit on wheels, equipped with state-of-the“art equipment including: 2 anesthesia machines, digital scales, autoclave, surgical lighting, microscope, as well as medical supplies.
ROVER travels four days a week and is staffed by a Veterinarian, Licensed Veterinary Medical Technician (LVMT), Veterinary Assistant and Project Coordinator.
Qualifying pets receive:
spay or neuter surgery
post-op call from the LVMT to assure recovery is progressing well
To qualify, participants must bring proof of the following:
food stamp card, free school lunch program card, or WIC documentation
disability letter or V.A. disability letter
last year’s tax return statement
public housing rent receipt or Section 8 letter
Social Security income documentation
Fees: For those who qualify, ROVER’s services are available for just a $10 fee.
Due to the rising costs of rabies vaccinations and licensing, NHA will no longer provide this in your normal $10 fee. If you would like a rabies vaccination license there will be an additional $10 charge for this service. Thank you for your understanding.
Please note, an appointment is necessary. No walk-ups are accepted.
NOTE: Rover’s schedule and waitlist for the next few months is full. Please check back later when we reopen scheduling.
Donations for the Super Pet program are always needed. Take a look at the shelter wishlist.
