$50 Spay-Neuter
Effective August 1, 2020

By spaying or neutering your cat(s), you’ll help control the cat over-population which results in millions of healthy cats being euthanized in the United States each year simply because there aren’t enough homes to go around. Over-population is the leading cause of death in cats.   Read more about spay/neuter benefits...

What you need to do to

  • Schedule a surgery day    352-840-0663, option #2 or click here to request an appointment online
  • Sheltering Hands has limited staff and resources. We work hard to help as many cats and their caretakers as possible. Our small clinic has spayed/neutered over 10,000 cats since we opened, but the need is always greater than any one organization can handle. For the safety of the cats and our staff and volunteers, we have to place a limit on the number of cats we can do at each surgery day. 

***Payment for services and surgery is expected at check in, which is between 7:30 & 8:30 am on the scheduled surgery date. Releases are generally between 4:30 and 5:00 pm on the same day .***

Make your check-in process faster on surgery day by completing your paperwork ahead of time.  Print a copy for each cat/kitten having surgery, fill out the form and bring with you.   click here
