Most frequent questions and answers
Everyone is welcome, though we give scheduling priority to those who are income-sensitive, have multiple cats, take care of community cats or colonies, or do rescues.
No, because we are not a full-service veterinary practice. For any needs beyond basic wellness care and spay/neuter surgeries, we encourage you to develop a relationship with a veterinarian in your area.
We are a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization, and we are set up to offer a limited number of basic services. It costs your vet a great deal to offer you a full-service practice, which is why their prices are higher. They maintain a more complex facility and remain stocked with a far greater range of equipment and supplies so that they can offer you whatever you need when you have an appointment with them.
Every service Fix ‘Ur Cat provides—spay/neuter and wellness—is subsidized by Fix ‘Ur Cat, a handful of generous supporters, and our volunteers who donate their time, making our prices affordable.
We occasionally receive grants and donations to fund special programs such as “Buy 3 Get 1 Free” and Pets for Vets, so don’t hesitate to ask whether we have any help available that might apply to your situation.
We are not equipped or staffed to deal with emergency issues. The most affordable treatment will be through your primary vet, if possible. If you can’t wait, the list below shows the emergency clinics in our area. If none of these is close enough to you, you can do a search for “emergency vet near me” for other alternatives.

We offer cats and kittens for adoption only when they have been rescued by our volunteers in the course of their work. Follow us on Facebook for the latest information on furry friends we have available, and click here for the Adoption Application you’ll need if you’re interested.
We do all we can to find homes for the animals we rescue, but lack the capacity to assist community members who wish to surrender a pet for adoption. You’ll find listings for local animal shelters on our Resources page.
