The McKamey Animal Center offers a Cat-A-Neuter Program to assist low income City of Chattanooga residents with spaying / neutering of their cats.  In 2012 and again in 2013, McKamey took in over 8,000 animals. Grant driven  spay/neuter programs are the solution we offer to help lower that number. As the open door animal shelter for the City of Chattanooga it is our responsibility to aide in animal population control as well as save as many lives as we can.  This program is only available to low income Chattanooga city residents and is designed to provide individuals a low cost solution.  If the cats on your property are feral please look into the TNR portion of our program.

Cat-A-Neuter package includes:

  • Spay $55.00 per female. Neuter is $45.00 per male.
  • Rabies vaccine, certificate and tag
  • Ivermectin (dewormer)
  • Procaine penicillin G benzodiazepine injection (antibiotic)
  • Feline leukemia test


Cat-A-Neuter surgeries are allowed on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. No appointment is needed - drop off cats between 7:30 am and 8:30 am, must be brought in carrier, and pick up is allowed any time after 4 pm the same day. If you are a resident of the city of Chattanooga you are also required to purchase a city license for your cat at an additional cost of $10.00.
