The ASPCA, The Humane Society of New York, The Toby Project, and several other local and national organizations are strong supporters of our efforts to bring the feral and stray cat population under control in New York City. These organizations offer free or low-cost spay/neuter services (and related treatment) for NYC’s feral and stray community cats and kittens.
You must be a Certified TNR Caretaker if you are working with feral and stray cats to qualify for the free and low-cost clinic services offered by the ASPCA, The Toby Project, and The Humane Society of New York. If you are not yet certified, please register for an upcoming Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and Colony Care workshop. This free, one-time workshop is also available online for those who cannot attend a live workshop.
Please note that all three of these non-profit spay/neuter providers also offer low-cost spay/neuter services for the public through their subsidized spay/neuter programs.
Depending on appointment availability at the ASPCA, The Toby Project, and The Humane Society of New York, you might have occasion to seek out alternate low cost spay/neuter resources such as certificate programs and other low-cost spay/neuter providers.
