Spay/Neuter Services

The Wisconsin Humane Society offers high-quality spay/neuter services for the public at affordable rates. Programs vary by location and the type of animal you are seeking services for. Please use our guide below to determine which service is right for you.

Which spay/neuter program is right for you?

In order to determine the program appropriate for your situation, start by answering the following questions, then find the right service in the chart below:

  • Do you consider yourself to be the owner of this animal?
    If you consider yourself this animal's owner and they're your pet, look for "owned" on the chart below.
    If you do not consider yourself to be the animal's owner because they are a stray, feral, or community cat that you are trying to help, look for "unowned" in the chart below.
  • Do you qualify for our income-based program?
    If you receive unemployment, social security, food assistance, or any of the other qualifying criteria found here, look for "yes" in the Income-based Rate column on the chart below.
    If you do not qualify, look for "no." 
  • Will your cat be ear-tipped during their surgery?
    All outdoor cats - whether they're owned or unowned - will be ear-tipped at the time of their TNR or Barn Cat surgery. This small notch in the tip of their ear indicates that the animal has already been spayed or neutered. It is a painless procedure that occurs while they're under anesthesia and heals very quickly. 

 

After referencing the chart above, select the appropriate program below for more details:

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Services

Offered in Saukville and West Allis

The Wisconsin Humane Society's TNR program provides spay/neuter and vaccination services to community/outdoor feral cats for a nominal fee. 

Locations offered:
TNR is currently offered at our Ozaukee Campus in Saukville and our Spay/Neuter Clinic in West Allis.

Animals served:
Unowned cats (feral/outdoor/community cats)

Important notes:
- Every cat who receives surgery through this program will be painlessly ear-tipped under anesthesia during their surgery. This is to indicate to concerned parties who spot them outside that this cat has already been spayed or neutered, is not a lost stray, and does not need to be trapped or caught.
- This program is solely for unsocialized, feral cats who cannot live indoors. If a social, easily-handled cat is brought in for TNR services, WHS reserves the right to intake them as a stray (if found within the county) and hold them for the mandatory stray holding period to attempt to reunite them with an owner. If an owner is not found, the animal can begin their journey toward our adoption program. If a social cat is held, we do not charge for TNR services. 
- For the safety of staff and the comfort of the animals, all cats must arrive in a trap.

Cost of Services:
Cat spay/neuter: $30

Price includes:
Spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination (3 months and up), FVRCP vaccination, ear-tipping, and a microchip.
(Additional add-on services are available during surgery)

Appointment availability and procedure:
TNR appointments are offered at the WHS Ozaukee Campus on Mondays and Wednesdays; you will select a drop-off time for the morning, and pick-up occurs the same afternoon between 3-5pm. TNR is also offered at our Spay/Neuter Clinic in West Allis, but availability is very limited and dates will vary.
