About Us


Let's End The Cycle
Low Cost Spay & Neuter

Rockingham County Animal Shelter is partnered with Planned Pethood Spay & Neuter Clinic of Greensboro to bring the County of Rockingham a community spay & neuter program at a lower cost.
Please Come to The Rockingham County Animal Shelter To Set Up Your Appointment Today!


Dogs - $75.00
Cats - $65.00
Rabies Vaccine - $10.00
Carrier Rental (if needed) - $5.00

It is by appointment only so please come to the shelter to schedule your appointment today! This will help reduce the rate of unwanted litters throughout the county and help reduce the rate of intake seen at public shelters. Also, you MUST bring proof of a current rabies vaccination with you at the date of the surgery or the veterinarian on staff will provide one.
