Spay & Neuter
Is your pet Spayed or Neutered? Spaying and neutering your pet will improve your pet’s health by preventing or decreasing the chances of some reproductive diseases and cancers. It may also help reduce marking, aggressive tendencies or running away to find a mate. Our clinic offers quality spay/neuter services at reduced rates.
However, if you are receiving approved state public assistance programs you may qualify for the state subsidized spay/neuter program which includes a rabies vaccination for up to 3 pets a year for just $20 each. Once approved you can choose a provider including our shelter’s clinic which accepts state spay/neuter certificates. To apply for the state program see the State Office of Animal Welfare website.
We do not declaw cats as this is actually the amputation of your cat’s fingers. It contributes to behavior problems, leaves your cat with no defenses and is considered inhumane.
All senior pets, 7 years or older, require pre-operative blood work to help determine if they are healthy enough to undergo the procedure.
All cats must arrive in individual carriers (no cardboard carriers) and all feral (community) cats must be in traps. Dogs must be leashed and left in vehicle until after check-in for everyone’s safety.
TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) for Community Cats
Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. TNR stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction.
We accept walk-ins to spay/neuter trapped community (feral) cats on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8:30 am and 9:00 am. All community (feral) cats must be in humane traps and covered by a sheet to reduce stress while they are in our care. Pick-ups are same day between
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
