PLEASE NOTE: Humane Ohio spays or neuters animals by appointment only.
For Outdoor Cats:
We are currently scheduling out into September and October for community cat appointments. We understand how very frustrating this is and will add appointments as we are able, but please be aware if you submit the appointment request form that there is currently a wait of several months. If you'd like to go ahead and request an appointment for one or more community cats, complete this form. We have also compiled a list of other spay/neuter clinics who provide services for community cats that you can reach out to in an attempt to get a sooner appointment.
Clinic hours: Monday-Friday, 7:30 am - 5:30 pm
The easiest way to make your appointment for owned pets is online - click the button on the right (or below if viewing on a mobile device.) You can also call us at (419) 266-5607, but it can be difficult to get through due to the volume of calls that we receive.
To schedule an appointment for an outdoor community cat, please complete this form. See the note above regarding the current wait time for appointments.
Spay/neuter surgeries are performed Monday through Friday. For drop-off and pick-up times, see our Pre-Operative Instructions page.
Humane Ohio will spay/neuter kittens when they're eight weeks old and at least 2 lbs, and puppies when they're eight weeks old and 2-4 lbs. (depending on the breed). It's a myth that you can't spay/neuter kittens and puppies when they're so young - they actually bounce back from spay/neuter surgery very quickly. Pediatric Spay/Neuter is considered safe and can be less stressful on the animal than waiting until they're older.
Senior animals can be safely anesthetized by taking a few precautions. First, we request that dogs and cats eight years and older have bloodwork drawn at their regular veterinarian prior to their spay/neuter appointment. The recommended pre-surgical bloodwork is a complete blood count (CBC) and chemistry panel (Chem panel). This bloodwork checks organ function, particularly that of the liver and kidneys. Because the liver and kidneys process and eliminate medications such as anesthesia from the body, if these organs are not functioning properly, there could be complications during anesthesia. Humane Ohio does not offer bloodwork services; we are not a full-service veterinary clinic and focus solely on spay/neuter because our mission is to prevent unwanted litters.
Humane Ohio provides transport from locations in ten surrounding counties on a regular basis. See details on the calendar below for upcoming transport opportunities and how to schedule.
