Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic
The Cattery started Corpus Christi’s first High Volume, High Quality, Low/Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic in January 2012. We provide low cost spay/neuter for cats and dogs . We also provide low cost vaccinations, microchips and other services at the time of surgery or on our Wellness Clinic days.
Starting our Clinic
Soon after starting our shelter, we became aware just how many strays end up at Animal Control each year and how many of them are euthanized. After researching this problem it became clear that one of the biggest pieces of the puzzle to solving pet overpopulation is affordable, accessible spay/neuter options. At the time, Corpus Christi did not have a high volume, low cost spay/neuter clinic.
In late 2011 we applied to be part of the ASPCA’s National Spay/Neuter Project and we were accepted! This program provided training for our Veterinarian and Technicians in high volume surgery techniques. Petsmart Charities provided all of the equipment and consumables to start our clinic. The Ed Rachal Foundation provided start up funds and grants to reduce costs for low income residents.
Our clinic is called a M.A.S.H. clinic which stands for Mobile Animal Surgical Hospital. We rely on local businesses to host our clinic 3 days per week, 48 weeks of the year. At each clinic we set up all of our equipment and at the end of the day we pack it all back up in our van.
A high volume clinic performs at least 5000 spay/neuter surgeries per year, which for our clinic means 35 surgeries per day.
Our clinic operates according to ASPCA and Humane Alliance spay/neuter clinic guidelines. All animals receive quality pain management and drug protocols. Our surgeons are experts at spay/neuter surgeries - they spend many hours each week doing only spay/neuter.

We are constantly searching for funding to lower these prices even further. Please check our website and/or FaceBook often for news of special events, sponsorships, or grants and how to qualify.
