The JOY Clinic
We are proud to be part of the National Spay/Neuter Response Team! This is a network of spay/neuter clinics that trained at the National Training Center of Humane Alliance, a program of the ASPCA. We follow their established veterinary standards of care in offering quality, affordable spay/neuter services.

Serving Pet Owners Across Middle Tennessee


An Appointment is Required!

Spay and neuter services are available to all dogs and cats in need. Services are open to Wilson County pet owners and surrounding counties too. We also have safe traps if you know of any free roaming cats that need to be fixed. Surgery prices range from $35-$75 with co-pay options and grant options to help remove any barriers for having your pet spay or neutered.

Need to make an appointment? Call or text 615-281-0664 leave your pet's information and your contact information. Our scheduler will contact you when we have an opening.

You also have the option of starting the scheduling process online. Once this is complete, your request will be forwarded to our scheduler to confirm or deny. Please know that a confirmation is needed.

How It All Started

We began offering spay/neuter services in April of 2000. Since then we have performed over 40,000 spay/neuter surgeries.  

We concentrate our efforts in Wilson County - Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown but to date we have provided spay/neuter services for pets in the following counties: Cannon, Cheatham, Sumner, Davidson, Trousdale, Smith, DeKalb, Dickson, Lincoln, Perry, Rutherford, Knox, White, Williamson, Maury, Putnam, Robertson, Jackson, and Cumberland Counties.

To qualify for grant funds, some funders require proof of need (such as WIC, disability, SSI or Medicaid) but other sources of funding are open to any pet owner.

Our goal is to sterilize pets to lessen the pet overpopulation problem which results in suffering and the continued need for euthanasia of healthy animals whose only crime was being born.
