SAFE Care Feline Spay & Neuter ClinicBefore Your Appointment
SAFE Care ClinicBefore Your Appointment
Cats will need some extra TLC before their vet appointment.
Food / Water Before the Appointment
- Adult cats should not have any food after midnight the night before surgery. Kittens 6 months and under should have food removed the morning of surgery. Water is fine to leave out.
- You can bring a small amount of food for your cat or kitten. We will feed them a small meal when they wake up.
Day of the Appointment
- Cats should arrive at the clinic between 7:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. in individual, clean and PLASTIC carriers or traps. One carrier per cat. No cardboard carriers please.
- Community cats must be transported in traps.
- Payment is received at drop-off in the morning only. We accept cash, check or credit card (Visa®, MasterCard® and Discover®).
- Pick up time is between 4:00 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Each cat goes home with written discharge instructions and a medical record with a rabies tag and certificate.
Catching Community Cats
We realize that trapping community cats is not an exact science. We are willing to work with you over a period of several days or weeks to get them into the clinic for sterilization. Read more in our Feral Cats resource section.
