We've fixed more than 7,500 cats at the $35 rate since we started this program with the shelter in January of 2007. After branching off into our own nonprofit, we were hoping to be able to continue this rate, despite all the increases in our costs. But, unfortunately, supply costs have gone up significantly again between 2013 and 2014, and that plus the increases over the previous 6 years make it impossible to continue to offer the $35 rate for the rest of this year.
We will honor the $35 rate for feline spay/neuter surgery with the included vaccines at our February and March clinics; however, in April, we will increase this price to $45 per cat. Rabies and distemper vaccinations will continue to be included for free with surgery, as will eartipping for feral cats. If the $45 rate poses a financial hardship for anyone, please contact us at (856) 208-7729, and we can try to put you in touch with groups who might be able to help you with funding, especially if you are fixing a large group of cats. Thank you for understanding, and we hope we'll continue to see you at future Spay Our Strays Clinics.
