The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) provides instructions, dates, and locations of mobile clinics for spaying or neutering of cats and dogs.

You can also get information about spay-neuter services provided by other non-profit organizations.

The ASPCA’s Mobile Spay/Neuter Clinics in New York City are temporarily paused due to operational changes. The ASPCA will resume mobile spay/neuter services as soon as possible. 

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.

  • 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.
