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. You must reside in Clackamas, Multnomah, or Washington Counties (Oregon) or Clark County (Washington), or live within a one-hour drive to our Sherwood shelter to qualify to use our spay/neuter services.

We offer spay/neuter appointments only, but additional services (such as microchipping and vaccinations) can be added to the appointment (see below for details).

Appointments are offered at CAT on weekdays (M-F) only. You will drop your cat(s) off at our clinic in the morning and pick up in the afternoon of the same day. We are not accepting new appointment requests at this time (more details below).

Please see below for pricing, eligibility, and scheduling information.

How to Book an Appointment

WAITLIST CLOSED as of 08/11/2022. CAT has temporarily closed our Spay & Save surgery appointment waitlist. While our waitlist is closed, we will be working to catch up on surgeries for clients already on our waitlist. Due to staffing and capacity issues, existing clients are being scheduled many months after their initial requests. We will announce here when the waitlist is open again, but expect it will not be open for several months. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Cat Adoption Team’s spay/neuter clinic aims to assist low-income families and their cats by offering affordable spay/neuter surgeries. To qualify for our program, you must reside in Clackamas, Multnomah, or Washington Counties (Oregon) or Clark County (Washington), or live within a one-hour drive to our Sherwood shelter.

There are three pricing levels depending on qualification (see Pricing & Qualifications). 

If possible, please complete and print the service authorization form (PDF) and bring it with you to your appointment.

CAT is only able to provide spay/neuter surgeries to owned pet cats. If you need assistance with a feral, stray, or barn cat, please contact the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon.

  • $25 per cat for individuals receiving any of the following:

*Spay & Save sets surgery costs as low as possible to make spay/neuter available to all pet owners. We recognize that in some circumstances, these amounts may still be out of reach. If the cost of surgery through this program is keeping you from spaying or neutering your pet(s), please contact us to see if we can provide any additional support.

CAT offers additional veterinary services that can be added to your surgery appointment.

The following packages are available ONLY at the spay/neuter appointment at CAT — no substitutions are allowed. Pricing varies, depending on how you qualify.

*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.
