Feral Cat Program

We do not schedule Spay and Neuter appointments for feral cats. We accept feral cats for Spay and Neuter surgery on a walk-in basis Tuesday - Friday drop off between 8:00am - 8:30am. For the feral program the cats have to be over 3 months of age, one cat per trap and the trap must be completely covered with a towel/sheet to reduce the animals stress.

Our Feral Program is only offered to citizens living in the incorporated cities of San Jose, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Milpitas and Saratoga for $25.00. This includes spay/neuter (no additional pregnancy fee), Rabies, FVRCP, flea treatment and earmite treatment (if needed). All feral cats will be ear-tipped and may be microchipped (while supplies last).
