We are only accepting spay/neuter patients within McLennan County at this time.

Review each tip prior to scheduling an appointment for spay/neuter 
surgery:

Before Scheduling Your Cat Spay/Neuter
 
  • Animal must be between 3 months (12 weeks) to 7 years

    • Younger/older animals will be at veterinarian's discretion
       

  • Animal must have a current rabies vaccination. These can be provided on the day of surgery if needed. We can also provide vaccinations, microchips, heartworm testing, and refills for flea/tick/heartworm prevention on the day of surgery.​

    • Heartworm Testing and Flea/Tick Products: If your pet is current on its vaccinations or your dog is currently receiving monthly heartworm prevention (with a test in the last 12 months) bring or email a copy of the prevention purchases and test results on the morning of surgery - info@animalbirthcontrol.org. This will avoid the need for another heartworm test and allow you to purchase heartworm/flea/tick product on the day of surgery. Note what you need.
       
  • Pregnant cats can be spayed.

Scheduling Your Cat Spay/Neuter
 
  • Request a surgery appointment by clicking the 'Schedule Surgery Appointment' button below. Use the Notes field to let us know if your cat is pregnant, to ask a question or give the scheduler additional information. 
     

  • You will receive an email after your appointment has been reviewed and approved 2-3 business days after scheduling. You will also be contacted with a text and/or call, and a reminder email 1-2 days prior to your pet's surgery appointment.
     

  • Multi Pet Tip: if you have more than one pet to bring on one day, choose 2-3 days beyond the first available spot to help ensure that the number of spots you need are available. Ask the scheduler to combine appointment dates in the note field. You may be asked to place a deposit. 

Reschedules

If you cannot keep the appointment, text (254-776-7303) or email at least 24 hours in advance so the opening can be used by another pet. We book 3+ weeks out, so there would be additional delay.

Day of Surgery 
 

Drop off - 7:15am-8:15am

Pick up - 4:00pm-5:00pm (We close at 5:30!)

Saturday surgeries only - pick up between 2:00pm-3:00pm 

  • Bring one cat per carrier or crate

  • Place only a sheet or two of newspaper, a puppy pad, (or if neither is available, a hand towel) inside the carrier. 

      Trapped and Unsocial Cats

  • If you have an outdoor cat that hasn't been in a carrier or trap before, read through this trapping tips page to make the process easier on your cat and safer for you

  • Outdoor cats arriving in a cat trap do not need to book a surgery appointment. ​​Arrive 7:15am-8:15am, or text or email if a special arrangement is needed.

Financial Assistance: If you are on government assistance or need a portion of the surgery cost sponsored by a donor, one-time household help with the cost of surgery and microchip may be available. Use the Note field to mention your needs. If you have received surgery funding help in the past, you may still use the clinic's services at our regular, subsidized, partially donor-funded prices.

 

Donate to Help: Our surgery prices are significantly below our actual expenses so that most families can afford our base fees. If you can give, donations are needed and deeply appreciated! Spay it forward if you can.
