 Low-Cost Spay/Neuter for Greater Cincinnati,
Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana

United Coalition for Animals (UCAN) operates a low-cost spay/neuter clinic to service pet owners, people caring for free-roaming cats, rescue groups, and animal shelters within a 75 mile radius of the clinic.  UCAN is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization and can offer low-cost spay/neuter services thanks to generous private donations and grants. 

UCAN's vision is a world in which every cat and dog lives to find a loving home and every resident has access to affordable spay/neuter services.

UCAN's mission is to provide professional, low-cost spay/neuter services to end the unnecessary deaths of homeless cats and dogs in shelters in the Greater Cincinnati area, including surrounding counties in Southern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana.

Help End Euthanasia of Greater Cincinnati Dogs and Cats











TOO MANY PETS.  TOO FEW HOMES.       about this photo                   

UCAN is the solution.  Over 70,000 puppies and kittens are born each day - over half of them are "oops" (unintended litters).  Each year in the U.S. millions of innocent dogs and cats are abandoned. Some fend for themselves on the streets. Many are abused or neglected. Most end up in overcrowded, underfunded county shelters. Each year, the over 4 million cats and dogs not lucky enough to be adopted are euthanized.  Our local Hamilton County SPCA, alone, takes in an average of 44 animals a day.

The solution is simple. Spaying and neutering dogs and cats prevents unwanted births and reduces the number of animals that will wind up in shelters. UCAN has completed more than 54,000 spay and neuter surgeries, preventing hundreds of thousands of unwanted kitten and puppy births.

Your help makes it all possible. We rely on individual giving to bridge the gap between our low spay/neuter fees and the actual cost of operating the clinic. Your gift today will help us to continue working to realize our vision - one day at a time, one animal at a time.

Please click here to donate or pledge securely online or mail-in a donation to UCAN at 1230 W. 8th Street, Cincinnati, OH  45203.  Every dollar helps to continue our mission and save more lives.  THANK YOU!

Help for Northern Kentucky Dogs

UCAN Transport vanNorthern Kentucky Friends of the Shelter (FOTS) helps Northern Kentucky residents so they only have to pay UCAN $15 for a dog spay/neuter surgery and a rabies vaccine. UCAN's remaining cost is generously covered by FOTS.

To ensure Northern Kentucky residents have access to this special pricing and spay/neuter services, UCAN currently provides free transports to the clinic from Boone County, Pendleton County and Gallatin County.  Please see our transport schedule for the transport dates and numbers to call to schedule an appointment.

Celebrating our 50,000th Surgery

United Coalition for Animals (UCAN) is proud to announce that it has completed its 50,000th surgery. Over 70,000 puppies and kittens are born each day in the U.S., over half of which are "oops" (unintended) litters. As a result, every year, millions of cats and dogs end up living terrible lives on the streets scrounging for food or in shelters where over 4 million of them are euthanized.


"UCAN is thrilled to reach this milestone. The 50,000 surgeries have prevented hundreds of thousands of unwanted cats and dogs from being born into abuse, neglect and ultimate euthanasia," said Executive Director, Melanie Corwin. "In addition to the animals leading healthier lives after surgery, the community benefits by having significantly fewer homeless animals roaming the streets or living in county shelters that cost taxpayers money."

UCAN's Medical Staff




The lucky 50,000th animal is Gunner, a beautiful 70 pound American Pit Bull that came in on UCAN's free transport from PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Society).  To make sure everyone has access to its services, UCAN provides free transports from several locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
