At the Big Fix Clinic, we do not make appointments for outdoor cats (with the exception of our transport program).
- Walk-In appointments are available each Thursday
- All cats must come either in a carrier (tame cats) or a humane trap (feral cats)
- Cats should have no food after midnight the night before surgery. Water is fine.
- Check-in time is 7:30am-8:00am. No cats will be accepted after 8:00am.
- A maximum of two cats per person per Thursday are accepted.
- Pick-up time will be either 4:00-4:30pm or 5:00-5:30pm depending on where you are in line.
- On particularly busy days, some cats may be held overnight for surgery on the following day.
- All feral cats will receive an ear-tip to show that they have been altered.
- The fee for feral cats is $0, thanks to a grant from the Bissell Pet Foundation. When this funding runs out, the fee for feral cats will be $10.
- For tame cats, the regular fee is $50 for males and $60 for females. If you cannot afford our regular fees, we will work with you to find a price you can afford.
- Please do not mislead our staff by putting a tame cat in a trap in order to use the special feral price. Tame cats who arrive in traps will be charged the full fee of $50/$60.
