Low Cost Spay & Neuter Programs

The cornerstone of stopping the suffering among homeless pets is spaying and neutering. By spaying and neutering your pets, and feral cats in your community, we can prevent the birth of unwanted animals and save the lives of dogs and cats in need. There are many programs available to help make this important surgery more affordable for pet owners.

CPAA's De-Sex in the City Program

De-Sex in the City provides low-cost and free spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations for owned dogs and cats in Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and York counties. Pit bulls and pit bull mixes qualify for free surgeries. For low-cost surgeries, the cost depends upon individual financial situations and the availability of funds. Call 717-576-0899 or email michele@cpaa.info for an appointment or more information.

CPAA’s Spay/Neuter Van
No matter how many spay/neuter clinics are available, there will always be a percentage of free-roaming or feral cats that won't be fixed. To help reach these populations, CPAA has a spay/neuter van to take the veterinarian to the cat colonies and spay/neuter them on site. If you have a colony of cats that is in need of spay/neuter, please contact CPAA at info@cpaa.info.

For surgeries in CPAA's spay/neuter van for free-roaming cats (colonies of 20 or more cats), the following fees apply:

- $25 per male cat, which includes neuter, Rabies and Distemper vaccines, ear tip & parasite preventive.
- $35 per female cat, which includes spay, Rabies and Distemper vaccines, ear tip, & parasite preventive. There is an additional $10 charge per cat if the cat is pregnant.

For smaller colonies and individual strays, spay/neuter appointments will be scheduled at the offices of CPAA's participating veterinarians. The cost per cat is $40, and includes spay/neuter, Rabies and Distemper vaccines, pain medication, and ear tipping.

ALL strays and ferals will be ear-tipped. No exceptions. For cats scheduled at the Animal Emergency & Referral Center of York, cats will not receive the Distemper vaccine; the cost is still $40 per cat.

To assist with the trapping of feral cats
, CPAA loans Have-A-Heart kindness traps. There is a $25 refundable deposit per trap. To borrow traps, email info@cpaa.info. For cats that cannot be trapped using Have-A-Heart traps, drop traps are available from Angel Pets at 717-921-2117.

It is well-established that the only effective, humane way to manage feral cat colonies is through TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release), which proactively prevents more cats from being born through spaying and neutering. Please visit www.alleycat.org for information on why spaying and neutering (TNR - Trap, Neuter, Release) is the only effective, humane way to manage feral cats.
