Spay & Neuter Clinic

CAT’s Spay & Neuter Clinic offers low-cost spay/neuter services to help reduce the number of homeless and unwanted animals in our community.


About Our Clinic

CAT’s onsite hospital offers a low-cost spay/neuter clinic to assist cat owners who are in financial need. To make these services available to those who may not otherwise afford them, a portion of the price of each lost-cost surgery is covered by charitable donations.

Pet cats must be at least 8 weeks old and weigh at least 2 lbs. to be eligible for spay/neuter surgery in our clinic. Additional services, such as microchipping and vaccinations, can be added at the time of the spay/neuter appointment (see below for details). 

Appointments are available at CAT on Tuesday-Friday mornings only. 
Please see below for pricing, eligibility, and scheduling information.

*All surgical patients receive pain medications before surgery; CAT strongly encourages clients to purchase post-operative pain management medication. CAT provides these medications at as low a price as possible. You will have the option to elect for pain medication for your pet at surgery drop-off. Please read our Pain Medication Information Sheet (PDF); we can also provide you with more detailed information at that time. Please note that common over-the-counter pain medications may be toxic and should never be given to your pet.

All spay/neuter surgeries are performed by qualified, licensed veterinarians. All animals receive a brief physical exam prior to surgery and are attended to by veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants during surgery. All surgical patients receive pain medications before surgery, and you may elect to purchase post-operative pain medication.

At CAT’s spay/neuter clinic, I was able to get Trixie’s spay surgery, microchip, and rabies vaccine at a price I could afford.
