Mobile Spay/Neuter Services

Spay/Neuter Services for Ottawa's Cats

Service Temporarily Paused

With a high number of animals coming into the OHS, we have redeployed staff to ensure we are meeting the needs of the animals in our care. We are working hard to resume the MSNS service, but do not have a start date at this time. This page will be updated when more information becomes available.

Our wellness clinics, offering preventative veterinary care such as a wellness exam and vaccines, continue to operate.


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.
