Pre-Operative Instructions

Spay/neuter surgeries are currently performed seven days a week for owned cats and dogs; Wednesday and Friday for outdoor community cats.

Dogs

  • On the day of your appointment, please arrive at 7:30 AM if your last name starts with A-K, and at 8:00 AM if your last name starts with L-Z.
  • When you arrive, please check in with our staff person out front and leave your dog in the car.
  • You must wear a mask to enter the building for drop off and pick up. 
  • 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 (no flexi-leashes please).

Owned Cats

  • On the day of your appointment, please arrive at 7:30 AM if your last name starts with A-K, and at 8:00 AM if your last name starts with L-Z.
  • Owned indoor 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 currently available Wednesday and Friday if space is available in our spay/neuter schedule that day. Walk-ins should be dropped off at 9:00 am.

Outdoor community cats stay overnight and need to be picked-up at 9:30 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 for owned animals is due when the animal is dropped off for his spay/neuter surgery, and at pick up for outdoor community cats. If you prepay for your appointment, your morning check-in process will be quicker. 

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 time he ate the food so you can give our clinic staff this information when you check in. You may also give him water.
