Feral Cat Spays & Neuters

  • Spay and neuter surgeries are available by appointment
  • Surgeries are just $25, and include the cat’s spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, FVRCP vaccine, and ear tip.
  • In addition to appointments, we will continue to take in one feral cat each day without an appointment for those who did not hear about this change, or for those who have an unexpected opportunity to trap a feral. 
  • You are welcome and encouraged to schedule days or weeks in advance of your planned trapping day. There is no limit to the number of cats per trapper as long as the appointments are available. As with all our surgeries, the deposit is non-refundable but you are welcome to trade spots with other trappers and call or email us to let us know. 
  • If you have a voucher for a feral spay/neuter, please make an appointment which will require a deposit. Once you bring the feral cat for surgery at our clinic and present the voucher, we will reimburse you the deposit. 
  • The appointment system will ask for your cat’s information. We understand that you likely will not know which cat you will trap. Please enter any information to the best of your knowledge. If you are unsure, please enter the cat as a female and the name as “Feral”.  
  • In addition to our many daily feral surgeries, we also offer special Feline Fridays twice a month on the first and last Friday of every month. These events have room for multiple cats by appointment.
  • For the safety of you, our staff, and the cats, all feral cats must be in a secure feral cat trap, like the one pictured here. Feral cats brought to our clinic not in these traps will not be accepted for surgery. Please call us if you have any questions about feral cat traps.
