Featured Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Programs:

ASPCA Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinics
The ASPCA strives to make spay/neuter accessible and affordable for all New York City residents. Low-income pet parents in New York City's five boroughs with proof of public assistance such as welfare, Medicaid, Medicare, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), disability, food stamps, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or public housing qualify for heavily subsidized spay/neuter services for their cat or dog. Those receiving unemployment benefits do not qualify.

Spay/Neuter Fees for Cats and Dogs:

  • With proof of public assistance: $0
  • Without proof of public assistance: $125

The ASPCA also partnered with the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene to provide free spay/neuter services for a limited time to low-income residents of New York City. In order to qualify for this free offer, you must bring the following to a Mobile Clinic in Manhattan, Queens or Staten Island:

  • A printed voucher [PDF] for free surgery
  • A government issued photo ID showing a New York City address
  • Proof of benefits

What services are provided for pets?

  • Spay or neuter surgery.
  • Rabies vaccine (Under New York City law, we must provide this unless a pet parent presents a current rabies vaccination certificate signed by a veterinarian. A rabies tag is not sufficient proof).
  • FVRCP vaccine for cats/DA2PPV vaccine for dogs (We do not provide vaccinations or any other services to animals who are NOT being spayed/neutered).
  • Nail trim.
  • Small tattoo, placed close to the incision site when an animal is spayed/neutered (Tattoos let shelters and veterinarians easily identify that an animal has already been spayed/neutered. This is especially important for female animals, as presence of a tattoo can help the animal avoid undergoing an unnecessary surgery in the future).
  • E-collar.
  • Microchip, offered for an additional $10 per animal.
  • For more information, please call: 877.SPAY.NYC (877.772.9692) Hours: Monday - Friday, 11:00AM - 8:00PM or please visit their ASPCA's Spay/Neuter website.
