Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program


Program Details


Wait till 8

The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA (HBSPCA) provides low cost, high quality spay/neuter surgeries for your feline friend.

The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA Community Assistance Spay/Neuter program is provided as a service to low income pet owners for whom cost is a barrier to accessing these services at a regular veterinary clinic.

We are NOT accepting applications for dog surgery.  

Your pet will be provided with high quality care by one of our licensed and skilled veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians.  Our supplies and medications are the same as those available at any other veterinary hospital. All animals are provided with long lasting pain medication that’s administered during surgery , and have the same procedure as they would at a regular hospital.

We are able to keep our prices as low as we do for several reasons:

  • Our clinic is a high quality/high volume clinic – whereas many clinics will do only a few surgeries a day we focus only on spay and neuter services
  • Our organization is a registered charity, which means we save on some taxes that would have to be paid by a private business and are able to pass those savings along to you.
  • Our clinic is non-profit as opposed to a business, where owners rightly expect to make a profit for their work in the business.

Please read this information below carefully before booking an appointment for your pet. Be sure to check eligibility criteria.

Services & Eligibility

The HBSPCA Companion Animal Hospital provides spay/neuter surgery for healthy cats on an appointment basis.  Surgery happens at our onsite Companion Animal Hospital.

  • Pets must be between four months and six years of age.
