Community Cat Spay/Neuter Application

The Community Cat Spay/Neuter program was created to help lower the overpopulation of feral and community cats in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area.

This program is specific to cats that are not owned (meaning no one is caring for or feeding roaming cats) in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. It is not meant for cats who are going to be re-homed. All cats that participate in this program must come in a humane cat trap.

There is the low-cost and free versions of this service.

To qualify for free: You must have a household income of less than $40k.
Otherwise, there is a minimal cost of $25 per cat.

Both the free and low-cost versions of this program include all of the following required services:

  • Ear Tipping
  • Microchip
  • 1 year distemper vaccine
  • 1 year rabies vaccine

We can only accomodate up to 3 ferals. If you have a colony you are caring for, please reach out to Friends of Feral Felines. Applications for 4 or more cats will not be accepted.

We highly recommend checking with the following low-cost clinics below to see if they have an appointment available sooner.

Cabarrus Spay/Neuter Clinic

To help us determine which version of this service you qualify for, please let us know your income. You will be required to provide proof when we contact you via email.

In order to provide this service and have the microchipped registered to a person, we do need personal info so that should the cat be picked up it can be returned back to their home.
