Pre-Operative Instructions

Spay/neuter surgeries are performed Monday through Friday for owned cats and dogs; Monday through Thursday for outdoor community cats.

Notice - 3/17/20

In ­­order to preserve vital medical supplies as requested by the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board and the Governor of Ohio, and to comply with social distancing recommendations of not gathering in groups of ten or more, Humane Ohio will be closing our clinic at the end of business on Thursday, March 19, 2020, for an indefinite period of time. We want to protect our staff, the clients and the community as a whole and feel this is the best way we can do that at this time. We know this will be disappointing to many clients and rest assured, we will be back up and running as soon as we can do so safely and responsibly. Any changes to this status will be posted on our Humane Ohio Facebook page, so please keep an eye on the page for news.

We will also be suspending all public adoption events for the time being. We do have some great cats and kittens in need of homes, and will be sharing information about them on social media throughout the time we are off. The cats are in foster homes and can still be adopted during the weeks the clinic will be closed. Please take a look at our website at humaneohio.org for information on available cats and kittens and to fill out an adoption application.

Thank you for your patience during these uncertain times and stay safe!


  • Drop-off at 7:30 am on the day of your appointment.
  • Dogs go home the same day as their spay/neuter appointment and should be picked up at 3:00 pm. (If you are picking up a dog and an owned cat, you can come at 4:30 pm for both pets.)
  • Dogs must be on a leash or in a carrier.
  • When you arrive, please leave your dog in the car until the check-in process is complete.

Owned Cats

  • Drop-off at 7:30 am on the day of your appointment.
  • Owned cats go home the same day as their spay/neuter appointment and should be picked up at 5:00 pm.*
  • Cats must arrive in a secure carrier and cannot be carried in your arms. Cardboard carriers are available for $5.

Outdoor Community Cats

An outdoor community cat is a friendly stray, feral/wild or barn cat who will be returned to his outdoor home. Outdoor community cats must receive a left ear tip. (Eartipping is a visual way to identify outdoor community cats who have been spayed or neutered. It’s a standard practice used nationwide.)

Walk-in appointments for outdoor community cats are available Monday through Thursday if space is available in our spay/neuter schedule that day. Walk-ins should be dropped off at 8:30 am.

Outdoor community cats stay overnight and need to be picked-up at 9:00 am the morning after their spay/neuter surgery.

Friendly strays may arrive in a secure carrier – not a box – and only one cat per carrier. (A friendly stray is a cat who is able to be handled by you AND strangers.) For everyone’s safety, however, semi-friendly and feral/wild cats must be in a humane trap and only one cat per trap. (A semi-friendly cat is one who is able to be handled by you but NOT by strangers.) We rent easy-to-use humane traps for $60 each; the cost is fully refundable upon return of our trap.

For all animals fixed at Humane Ohio

We accept cash and credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Payment is due when the animal is dropped off for his spay/neuter surgery.

If the animal is OVER four months old, do NOT allow him to eat any food after midnight the night before his spay/neuter surgery. You may give him water.

If the animal is LESS than four months old, he can have food up until 6:00 am on the day of his spay/neuter surgery. Please make note of the exact time he ate the food so you can give our clinic staff this information when you check in. You may also give him water.
