Spay & Neuter Programs

McKamey Animal Center offers a variety of Spay / Neuter programs to pet owners. They target stray/ feral cats and owned cats & dogs and are designed to reduce the unwanted pet population of Chattanooga and surrounding areas. It is our goal to encourage a community environment that promotes acceptance and responsibility so that the citizens will help us execute a plan that controls and protects the pets abandoned by society.

Feline Trap-Loan Program

Do you live in the city of Chattanooga and have feral (unowned) cats in your neighborhood? McKamey is helping cats through our TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program! We stabilize the population by preventing births, and returning them to their environment keeps new cats from moving in and having more litters. Traps are available through our Admissions department for a fully-refundable deposit for residents of the city of Chattanooga.

Deposit: $70

Trap returned in working condition within 10 days: full refund

If trap is not returned within 10 days, $1/day will be taken out of your deposit.

All trapped cats brought in for surgery must follow the surgery drop-off guidelines: drop animal off between 8:00 am and 9:00 am and pick up is between 4:00 and 5:00 pm the same day.
