In preparation for your visit, please check our hours of operation for any special updates.

 

All Sunday clinics have been sponsored and spay/neuter will be FREE for all Sacramento County feral/community cats through all of 2021! An appointment is required.

SUNDAY CLINIC APPOINTMENTS
The Sacramento SPCA holds Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Clinics four Sundays per month. These clinics are specifically for feral and free-roaming cats that have been trapped the day before the clinic, and are not intended for pet cats. The price is $20* per cat and includes spay/neuter, a mandatory ear tip, FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and flea and earmite treatment if needed. To reserve one or more spots at one of these clinics, you may e-mail us at feralcats@sspca.org or leave a message at (916) 504-2818.

*Unless the cat is trapped in Sacramento County, then the fee has been sponsored.

MONDAY – SATURDAY DROP-INS
Trapped feral cats may also be brought to the Sacramento SPCA Spay/Neuter Clinic, Monday through Saturday without an appointment.

  • Space at these clinics is limited; therefore, we will only accept one trapped cat per household.
  • For a limited time only, we are only accepting up to 10 trapped feral cats per day. Once we have reached our 10 community/feral cat walk-in maximum, we will post a sign in order to let additional trappers know that we have reached our walk-in maximum for the day.
  • Surgery spaces will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • As funds last, fee will be covered by a grant for cats trapped in Sacramento County (Including Sacramento City) and includes spay/neuter, FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and a mandatory ear tip.
  • For cats trapped outside of Sacramento County, the price is $50 per cat and includes spay/neuter, FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and a mandatory ear tip.
  • We will start accepting walk-ins at 7:00 AM – 7:15 AM. Please line up in a single file line in front of our cat lobby door, please maintain 6ft apart from one another. (If you arrive later than 7:15 AM, you will have to wait until 8:50 AM to check-in, if we have not already reached our maximum.)
  • The feral cat must be in a safe, humane cat trap and covered with a small blanket or towel (we cannot accept ferals brought to us not in a trap). Please see our Trap Loan Program for more information.
