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 various neighbourhoods throughout 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.

  • Current enrolment in the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)
  • 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 surgeries for $30 per cat. We also provide optional microchipping for $20 per cat, as well as complimentary nail trimming and ear cleaning (if needed).
