Mobile Spay/Neuter Services

Spay/Neuter Services for Ottawa's Cats

We are accepting a limited number of cats for spay/neuter at the Ottawa Humane Society Animal Clinic located at 245 West Hunt Club Rd, while our vehicle is off the road for maintenance.

Please read through the information below before requesting an appointment.

Spay/Neuter Stand-By Appointments

We are now offering a limited number of spay/neuter stand-by appointments. A stand-by appointment means that you would come for morning registration between 8 and 8:15 a.m. with your cat ready for surgery that day. Once we have admitted all booked appointments, we will let you know if there is space available for your cat.

There is no guarantee that your cat will have surgery that day. We prioritize stand-by appointments on a first-come-first-serve basis, on the morning of the surgery.

You must submit an appointment request to be eligible for a stand-by appointment.

Appointments will open up for Stand-By on the same schedule as regular appointments. 


What is the OHS Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic?

The OHS Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic is a mobile veterinary spay/neuter clinic that provides subsidized feline spay/neuter surgeries for low-income pet owners in Ottawa.

Our main goal is to address the problem of cat overpopulation in Ottawa. A second goal is to help preserve the human-animal bond by providing a service to help pets stay with their owners, rather than be surrendered to the OHS.

Qualifying for our services:

In order to qualify for services from the OHS Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinic, clients must live within the City of Ottawa boundaries and meet one or more of the following requirements:

  • Enrolment in ODSP or Ontario Works
  • Enrolment in the Resettlement Assistance Program
  • Receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement (for seniors)
  • Annual Income below $30,000 (approximately $15 per hour; Notice of Assessment required)
  • Letter or referral from a social worker, social service agency, or qualified City of Ottawa employee

Cats must be at least 4 months of age and no older than 8 years of age, and in good general health.

Cost of our services:

We provide subsidized spay/neuter services for $60 per cat. This price includes a microchip if you are interested in getting one for your cat. We also provide complimentary nail trimming and ear cleaning (if needed).

About our clinics:

Clients arrive with their cats at 8 a.m. for registration and arrive to pick up their cats at 3 p.m. that same day!

Living with an unsterilized cat can present some challenges. To assist in dealing with potential behaviours your pet may displaying because of not being spayed/neutered, info sheets have been created to help you care for your cat.
