Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Programs & Clinics

The ASPCA, The Humane Society of New York, The Toby Project, and several other local organizations are strong supporters of our efforts to bring the feral cat population under control. These organizations offer free or low-cost spay/neuter services (and related treatment) for feral cats. Which organization you should work with will depend on whether or not you are a Certified TNR Caretaker, the scope of your project, and how many cats you can handle at one time.

For other veterinarians experienced in working with the medical care of feral cats, please visit our Feral-Friendly Veterinarians in New York City page.

ASPCA Spay/Neuter Clinic

If you are a Certified TNR Caretaker and your colony is located within New York City, affordable spay/neuter for feral cats is available at the ASPCA Stationary Clinic in Glendale, Queens ($5 per cat, including a rabies vaccination and eartipping). Check back soon for more information, or contact the ASPCA at (877) SPAY-NYC (877-772-9692), option 6 for TNR.

The Humane Society of New York Clinic

The Humane Society of New York (HSNY) operates a feral cat clinic that offers free spay/neuter, left eartip, rabies vaccination, and flea and ear mite medication. Further services, such as testing, are available at regular fees. If a cat is sick or injured, free or discounted treatment may be available at the discretion of the HSNY.

What is the procedure for using the HSNY clinic?


Before you start trapping, call the Appointment Desk at (212) 752-4840 to schedule a date. Please provide as accurate an estimate as possible of the number of cats you want to trap and bring in.


Drop off the cats between 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. the morning of your spay/neuter date.

Very Important: Each cat must be brought in a separate trap, covered completely with a sheet — no exceptions. This is for the protection of the staff. Carriers or other containers are not acceptable.


Pick up cats between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., unless you're told otherwise.


Bring the cats to your own pre-arranged recovery space. The HSNY does not provide post-surgery boarding.
