Dixie Day Spay has performed more than 25,000 spay/neuter surgeries since opening October, 2009. We are in a modular building that was purchased for $1000 and sits on donated property. The clinic is kept clean and the surgical area is sterile. We have three licensed, caring and compassionate veterinarians on staff - each with years of high-volume spay/neuter experience. We welcome anyone at anytime to tour our facility. We are located next to a mobile home park with many transient residents. The animals they leave find their way here where they find food, water and shelter. Animals in the clinic - we do our best to care for the multitudes of cats and kittens that are left at our door. If a food bowl has food in it we suppose you could say it was dirty. We prefer these accusations as to hungry animals. We are happy to allow Cleveland for a No Kill City (a group that has lower the kill rate at Animal Control from 86% to below 10%) to use our extra kennels and crates. It is a convenience to them and we are pressed to understand why it would be offensive to anyone. If we were ten minutes late opening the door we apologize. Granny, our 12 year old Chihuahua who was rescued from Animal Control is allowed to nap on our desks - or anywhere else she pleases. We urge those who can afford a full-service veterinary hospital to please schedule their appointments there and leave our available appointments open for those who can't.

Happily surprised.We adopted a sweet little Chihuahua from the local SPCA and one condition is to have him neutered. The clinic is a double wide trailer and cats and dogs roam inside and outside. But looking at them you can see they are well cared for and loved by the staff. None were sickly. Inside the AC kept it cool on a hot day and it smelled very clean. All the little animals roaming inside and out were friendly and mild tempered. Not one tried to run or bite or even growl. Our little guy was very small...about 3 lbs.....so we were extra worried. The staff took time to talk with us and reassure our nerves. Their board showed that they had done a dog that had weighed 1 lbs no trouble at all. We dropped our little guy off at 8am and picked him up at 1:30pm. He was fully awake and just great. He doesn't even seem sore. They gave him a shot of antibiotics and a pain shot after his surgery. The vet arrived at 9am and they do the cats first so it was a quick service.They neutered him, gave him a rabies vac, did tests, personally held him when they could, and called us to keep us updated. We got an extra heart worm test for only $15. I do not know the regular vet costs of this test but Id guess it to be about $40 if not more at other places. The $50 it cost to adopt the little guy covered the entire service except that extra heart worm test. Amazing.We are VERY pleased and have no trouble going back when needed. Kind, professional, talented, and caring is what Id say about them and the place.B&D Watson
I would reccommend Dixie Day Spay to anyone! The staff is well trained and provides you with the proper take home care for your pet after it is spayed or neutered. You can have your pet fully vaccinated and checked for heartworms at the time of surgery at an affordable price. If your pet needs medical attention, they will direct you to your animal hospital of choice. I have had many of my orphan animals spayed, neutered and vaccinated with a heartworm check and all have had a speedy recover without any problems. Cleveland has been in need of a facility such as Dixie Day Spay, and it was because of the diligence and hard work of Betti that it all became possible. Not only does Dixie Day provide low cost spaying and neutering, but the also help pull the animals from the local shelter and make it possible for these animals to get adopted into good homes, where otherwise, these healthy animals stand a chance of being killed due to overcorwding in the shelters. Cleveland Tennessee is fortunate to have such a clinic with a staff that cares for our pets! God Bless Dixie Day Spay with many more years of service to our community!
