There are many health benefits to spaying or neutering your pet. Spay and Neuter Kansas City provides this service at an affordable price as well as low cost veterinary services.

Spay & Neuter Health Benefits

Spayed animals no longer feel the need to roam to look for a mate. The result is that they stay home and have less chance of being involved in traumatic accidents such as being hit by a car. They also have a much lower incidence of contracting contagious diseases, and get into fewer fights.

In males, neutering decreases the chances of developing prostatic disease and hernias, and eliminates the chances of developing testicular cancer. It also reduces problems with territorial and sexual aggression, inappropriate urination (spraying) and other undesirable male behaviors.

In Females, spaying decreases the incidence of breast cancer (the rate goes down to almost zero if the spaying is done before the first heat cycle!). It eliminates the chance of developing a serious and potentially fatal infection of the uterus experienced by many mature unspayed animals (pyometra). Spay surgery also eliminates the heat cycle and associated mood swings and undesirable behaviors, messy spotting (in dogs) and the attraction of all available males to your yard.

Spaying & Neutering Facts

  • Help lower the euthanasia rate by decreasing the amount of unwanted animals.
  • Improve your pet’s health and life expectancy. Sterilized pets lead healthier, happier, and longer lives. It also reduces the risk of them getting various forms of cancer.
  • Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog and bite attacks. Fewer dogs, fewer attacks. Simple, right?
  • Males are less aggressive and will not actively seek out mates, thus decreasing the likelihood of your pet to wander off.
  • A cleaner house! Female dogs pass bloody fluid twice a year as part of their estrous cycle. No more carpet cleaning on account of that!

Community Cat Policy

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a program through which free-roaming feral cats (community cats) are humanely trapped, transported to a veterinarian where they are sterilized, rabies vaccinated, left ear-tipped and returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. The ear-tipping of a cat is the universal sign of an altered community cat. This is the most humane, effective, and financially sustainable strategy for controlling free-roaming cat populations and the only proven humane and effective method to manage community cat colonies.

Once TNR is in place, the cats will no longer reproduce; the population will stabilize and eventually decline. TNR programs stop reproduction,therefore mating behaviors such as fighting, roaming, spraying, yowling or fighting stops. This helps the cats become better neighbors to everyone. The cats are rabies vaccinated and are less susceptible to infectious diseases. This will help improve the overall health of the cats. This is a win, win for us all.

Community Cat Services

We offer Community Cat Bundles which include spay/neuter, one-year rabies vaccination, 24-hour pain injection, green line tattoo and ear-tipping. Additional services are available for community cats at an additional cost. Spay and Neuter Kansas City requires community cats to be anesthetized for services provided, therefore community cats cannot be seen for triage or additional vaccinations outside of surgery.

We require reservations for community cats to be brought in for spay/neuter. Reservations may be made by calling us directly.

Community cat surgeries are performed Tuesday through Friday with a confirmed reservation. Community cats may be checked-in for surgery between 9:00 am and 11:00 am the morning of their scheduled reservation and must be picked-up the same day of surgery no later than 4:30 pm, unless otherwise communicated. 

We do not accept community cats on Mondays and strongly discourage community cats from being brought in the day before their reservation. Community cats brought in the day before their surgery are subject to additional fees, including but not limited to, overnight charges. Prolonged unnecessary housing of community cats in humane traps is inhumane. 

Community cats are required to arrive in a humane, live trap in order to receive services. Traps need to be of appropriate size so the cat can safely and comfortably recover after surgery. Squirrel traps, rabbit cages, pet carries and/or makeshift container or boxes are not appropriate for community cats.

We offer a trap rental services for a required $50.00 refundable deposit per trap. Trap rentals are subject to availability and rental terms.
