The ASPCA offers spay and neuter services at mobile clinics for cats and dogs belonging to New York City residents.
If you receive public assistance, the cost is free. Those not receiving public assistance will pay a subsidized cost of $125.
You can view dates and locations of the mobile clinics by visiting the ASPCA website. Please note that the clinics are no longer first come, first serve. You are required to sign into a virtual waitlist prior to arriving at the clinic location. This will be the only list that will be honored by ASPCA staff and determines who will be admitted for surgery and in what order.
The ASPCA is unable to schedule appointments for spay/neuter services via phone or email.

Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic Guidelines
All potential clients are required to sign into a virtual waitlist prior to arriving at the clinic location. This will be the only list that will be honored by ASPCA staff and determine who will be admitted for surgery and in what order.
The ASPCA is unable to schedule appointments for spay/neuter services via phone or email. Clinics serve approximately 20-25 animals per day until full.
- Step 1: Visit aspca.org/NYwaitlist to add your name to the virtual waitlist starting at 5:30 AM. You will receive a text letting you know if you are one of the clients that likely will be seen, with instructions on next steps.
- Step 2: The first person on the waitlist will be seen at 7:30 AM. Make sure you are no more than 10 minutes from the clinic location by 7:30 AM.
- Step 3: Pets will be admitted in the order of the waitlist.
The following rules apply:
- All animals must be at least 8 weeks old or weigh at least 2 pounds and be in good health. Animals cannot be over 7 years of age.
- Animals under 4 months old should have a small meal at around 6 AM the day of the surgery. Animals older than 4 months should not be fed after midnight the night before.
- Do not withhold water from your pet before you come to the clinic.
- Bring all cats in carriers, with one cat per carrier. Bring dogs on leashes.
- You will be told what time that same afternoon you should pick up your pet.
Services for pets undergoing spay or neuter surgery include vaccinations and a nail trim. Additionally, a microchip and flea treatment are available for a low cost.
Other medical services are NOT provided at these clinics.
