Animal Birth Control is a 501(c)(3) private non-profit that was founded by Judy May in August of 1986 when she witnessed firsthand the problem of unwanted pets while she volunteered at a local shelter. She saw a large number of animals being brought into the shelter because they were no longer wanted or their owners could no longer afford to care for them, or no longer had time for them.


Since incorporation in 1986, ABC has saved over 10,000 lives by preventing unwanted litters. Many of the families that come forward for assistance have no other financial means to alter their pets. ABC has also assisted hundreds of people spay or neuter their feral, barn, or community cat colonies to prevent the overpopulation of outdoor cats. 


At this time, we are not offering payment plans on copays. All copays must be paid in full at least 10 days prior to your appointment. Copays can be paid by mailing them to our organization, or by clicking the "Donate" button at the top of our website. Please give your name, pets name, and appointment date when paying the copay. 

Once the full copay is received, a voucher will be mailed to you. You must take the voucher with you to the clinic when you drop your pet off for surgery. If you neglect to take your voucher, you will be required to pay full price for the surgery. 

If you are not sure if you have paid your entire copay, please contact us by filling out a contact form, or by calling us at 563-249-6884
