The Humane Society of New York (HSNY) offers services for community cats, including free spay/neuter, left eartip, rabies vaccination, and flea and ear mite medication. Further services, such as testing, are available at regular and very affordable fees. If a cat is sick or injured, free or discounted treatment may be available at the discretion of the HSNY.
Please call (212) 752-4840 to schedule appointments. Appointments are available 7 days a week. Cats need to be signed in between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. the morning of your spay/neuter date, and pick-up is usually between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., unless you’re instructed otherwise.
The Humane Society of New York is located at 306 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022.
Each cat must be brought in a separate trap or transfer cage, covered completely with a sheet — no exceptions. Carriers or other containers are not acceptable. Please call HSNY for more information on the requirements for rescued friendly and adoptable cats and kittens.
Note: The Humane Society of New York does not provide post-surgery boarding. All cats must be picked up at the requested time. It is crucial to their community cat program that you respect these strict guidelines.
