free or low cost spay neuter
The Toby Project and Flatbush Cats are excited to offer free or low cost spay neuter services for Flatbush residents! Service is available for cats only, in the following zip codes: 11226, 11225, 11203. These free and low-cost services are meant ONLY for those who truly cannot afford to have their pet spayed/neutered at a veterinary clinic.
Why should I get my cat spayed or neutered?
It helps them live a longer, healthier life! See the ASPCA for more info.
There are plenty of medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female) and neutering (male) your cats. You’ll also help control the cat overpopulation crisis, 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.
How does it work?
Make a reservation here, and you’ll receive an email confirming your spot. Then bring your cat to the mobile clinic location in Flatbush on Sunday, June 30th around 7:15am. You’ll check in and provide proof of local residence, along with proof of public assistance if applicable. A volunteer will tell you what time to come back for pickup, usually around 1-2pm that day.
What does it cost?
Male cats (neuter) is $40, female cats (spay) is $50. Or this service is completely FREE with proof of public assistance.
All cats will also receive free rabies + FVRCP vaccines.
Where do I need to show up?
We are finalizing the location now! Specific location details will be provided to all registrants by email at least one week prior to the clinic date.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring proof of local residence (Driver's License, utility or phone bill, etc. - passports cannot be used). This is required. For the services to be free of charge, please present proof of public assistance at check-in. We cannot accept documents at pickup - everything must be provided at check-in! Oh, and don’t forget to bring your cat too!
Check-in is at 7:15am and pickup time will be in the early afternoon, often around 1-2pm.
How should I make sure my cat is ready for surgery?
Visit The Toby Project for more info on how the mobile clinic works and what to expect (note: price listings on their site may be different. Prices for the Flatbush mobile clinic are slightly lower). It’s important to make sure your cat has no food after midnight before surgery. Water is ok.
