SPAY AND NEUTER INFORMATION AND REFERRALS
LOW COST SPAY AND NEUTER IN THE BATAVIA, BUFFALO AND ROCHESTER AREA
ASPCA Spay/Neuter Grant
VFA was recently awarded another grant for spay/neuter. As of 4/8/2019, we have vouchers available to assist with spay/neuter of cats and dogs for people on public assistance. It is a voucher system. The copay is $20 (cash or check only - no credit cards) for the voucher which is purchased at the Shelter during adoption hours. It covers the spaying and neutering of the cat or dog, rabies and distemper vaccines. You must be a resident of Orleans, Genesee or Wyoming Counties and be on public assistance (Temporary Assistance Program, Medicaid, Food Stamps, SSI for Aged, Blind and Disabled Program and/or Low Income Housing Assistance). Please bring proof of the public assistance program that you are on when you purchase the voucher. There are 3 participating veterinarians in Batavia.
SOS is a group of local volunteers in Genesee County providing low cost spaying and neutering to feral cats. For more information go to their website at www.spayourstrays.info, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org

Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic: To aid in the reduction of feral cat overpopulation, Habitat for Cats currently conducts a weekly low cost clinic in Penfield, NY for feral/homeless/unowned cats. For a $50.00 donation per cat, the following clinical services will be provided to each feral cat: • Spay/neuter by an experienced veterinarian • Anesthesia • Pain control • Dissolvable sutures • Rabies & distemper vaccinations • Flea, ear mite & parasite treatment • Ear tipping (a universal symbol marking a feral cat as spayed/neutered). IMPORTANT: Ear tipping is a mandatory part of our procedure. Any additional donations would be gladly accepted as the $50 fee does not cover the cost of the spay/neuter procedure nor clinic operations. This program is for feral/homeless/unowned cats only.
Spay/Neuter Clinics are held at the SPCA, Northtowns Shelter, located at 205 Ensminger Road, Tonawanda, NY 14150.

Pet owners and humane organizations will benefit from RCAC, which offers economical veterinary services for dogs and cats. Spay/neuter surgery appointments are available to low-income individuals who meet eligibility criteria and feral cat caregivers within our community. Surgeries will be scheduled by appointment only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (excluding holidays). Routine wellness and non-critical urgent care is available on a walk-in basis regardless of income level or geographic location. Wellness packages (including exam, vaccines and testing) for dogs and cats are also available. "Friends of Ferals" clinics will be held once a month to address the feline overpopulation problem in our area. During the clinics, 30-40 feral cats will be spayed or neutered, as well as receive rabies and distemper vaccines, be ear-tipped and receive flea/mite/worm treatment.
Cats and dogs can't drive to the clinic -- they need a little help getting spayed and neutered. Music video created by Alliance for Humane Action (AHA!) The link takes you to YouTube.com. It is a nice little video about getting your animals spayed and neutered.
