Welcome to The Surgery Center at Safe Harbor

The Surgery Center at Safe Harbor was funded by donations and gifts / grants from three area municipalities (Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Foley). Jim Brown Construction, LLC provided the labor and materials to build the center while the funds from the three area cities were used to purchase the necessary equipment we use every day.

We provide low – cost spay and neuter surgery services to area Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Return(TNVR) programs, area animal shelters, and legitimate 501(c)(3) Animal Rescue organizations in our area. We currently do not provide services for individually owned animals.

We Make the Biggest Impact by Helping the People Who Help Animals

Through our donor-established and funded animal medical clinic, S.H.A.C. provides low-cost veterinary services to local partner nonprofit organizations, supporting them in their spay/neuter and TNVR efforts. We believe that by educating fellow citizens about proven solutions to animal overpopulation issues, as well as teaching best practices around responsible and humane pet ownership, we can help empower our communities to humanely and effectively deal with animal issues.

Spay / Neuter License Plate Program


Through the ALVMF Spay/Neuter License Plate Program, proceeds from statewide tag sales offset the cost of spay/neuter surgeries performed at participating hospitals throughout the state of Alabama.

Qualifications for client participation:

  1. Must be an Alabama Medicaid recipient. Do not confuse this with Medicare. Medicaid is low-income, whereas Medicare is a program for the elderly.
  2. Client must send copy (or picture) of Medicaid Card and photo identification, matching the name on the Alabama Medicaid card prior to scheduling the appointment, to medicaid@safeharborac.org.
  3. Client will pay a co-pay of $10 per cat and $20 per dog
  4. The Medicaid cardholder must sign surgery form on day of surgery. If cardholder is an invalid or child, parent/guardian may sign for them. Signor must note the relationship category next to his/her signature on the surgery form.
  5. Program only pays for two surgeries in a calendar year per household. The client will be eligible for two more surgeries in each successive calendar year. A parent with multiple children on Medicaid will still only qualify for the household limit above.

To proceed, please fill out the form below or email us directly at medicaid@safeharbor.org.

(Limited to two per year, per household)
