Spaying (females) and neutering (males) free-roaming cats means fewer kittens are brought into already over-crowded shelters every year – which means fewer cats and kittens are put down at your municipal shelter. When you’re faced with a large colony of community cats, the cost of fixing them all may seem overwhelming. But there are many low-cost options to help you control your cat population without breaking the bank.

OAR is a low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter clinic with a great deal of experience handling feral and stray cats. Our clinic is in the Madisonville neighborhood of Cincinnati, and we offer transports from locations in northern Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. Our veterinarians are licensed and fully trained in high-volume spay/neuter; your cats will get the best care while they’re at OAR.

Feral cats in traps can be dropped off for spay/neuter surgery at OAR from 8am-4pm Monday-Thursday; 8am-9am on Fridays; and 2-3pm on Sundays. No appointment is needed for 1-2 feral cats per household per day but each cat must come in its own trap.This includes kittens. If you plan on trapping larger colonies, please call the clinic to make an appointment.

Outside of the Greater Cincinnati area? There are low-cost options in many cities and towns across the US. You can find low-cost options through SpayUSA or the ASPCA in an area near you.
