Program Summary

The goal of Animal Balance USA is to act as a resource for areas in need of accessible and affordable spay/neuter delivered quickly and efficiently to address an immediate need. Animal Balance USA can provide assistance in areas where there is a lack of accessible and affordable spay/neuter, a lack of personnel trained in providing high volume, high quality spay/neuter and/or an immediate need for high volume, high quality spay/neuter.

Our high-volume ‘MASH’ teams, comprised of the most experienced veterinary medical volunteers from all over the country, will be deployed to these target areas. We will work with local organizations to provide the type of services needed in their community and, when needed, teach them how to replicate our services so that they can be sustainable long term.  In every situation, we will use our very detailed standard operating procedures which we will share with local organizations for future use. It is a ‘MASH intervention’ if you will, one which will help solve the immediate crisis and create sustainable programs in order to have the greatest impact in each community in which we work.

“For example, in areas where there is a lack of accessible and affordable spay/neuter or lack of personnel trained to perform high volume, high quality spay/neuter, we can  solve the problem at the source, restore balance at the shelter, reduce intake, and ultimately decrease shelter deaths, all while training local organizations so that the solution is permanent.,” says Emma Clifford, Founder & Director of Animal Balance.


Animal Balance is comprised of a team of specialized experts who focus exclusively on creating high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter clinics in any environment imaginable. We recruit the most experienced volunteer veterinarians, technicians and assistants in the country for our campaigns. We have been creating community based humane animal management programs utilizing high volume spay/neuter clinics since 2004. 

Over the last sixteen years, we have served twelve island nations around the world, convincing local organizations to put their differences aside and to collaborate; helping to create sustainable solutions, while at the same time igniting social change aimed at fostering love, compassion and respect towards all species. We have now decided to shift our focus to provide our unique services right here in the United States as we have seen first hand the need for a true solution to overpopulation and it is high volume, high quality spay/neuter. 

If you would like to find out more about these services, please email us at and we can start by sending you a short questionnaire and a sample budget.

 Animal Balance saw an urgent need in the Palm Valley area where spay and neuter resources are scarce. Short term missions like this help alleviate resource gaps while allowing more time to put long-term solutions in place. This mission dovetails with the ongoing multi-year partnership between Best Friends and PVAC to improve shelter operations, implement a community cat program and help prevent euthanasia at local shelters.  Click below to hear from Mike Bricker, the Interim Executive Director for Palm Valley Animal Center to learn more about the dire need for services in South Texas.
