Subsidized Spay Neuter Program for Cats

At this time, the Kamloops Spay and Neuter Clinic is not accepting requests for new appointments, or for pre-surgical exams for new patients. There is no wait list at this time and appointments that are missed or cancelled will not be re-booked. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks to the generous support of the Vancouver Hospital Trust Fund, the Kamloops Spay Neuter Clinic now offers subsidized spays and neuters for cats owned by low-income guardians. This program will ensure that more cats get the basic care they need – eligible guardians will pay a portion of the fees and the trust fund covers the remainder.

Please note: If you plan to apply for this program – DO NOT use the “Book Appointment” button on our website or call the clinic.
