Spay/Neuter Services for Feral Cats

AWS offers free services to feral and free roaming cats* in Maine through our Trap-Neuter-Return Program

The following services are administered at no cost for feral and free roaming cats trapped in Maine:

Mandatory Services

  • Sterilization surgery (including a small tattoo applied near the incision)
  • Ear tip of the left ear – ear tipping is mandatory for cats receiving free services through our TNR program. It is a national symbol that indicates the cat has been spayed/neutered.
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Single dose of Revolution (for fleas, hookworm, roundworm, ear mites)

Optional Services

  • FVRCP vaccine $14
  • Microchip $10
  • FeLV/FIV test $35

Because we require all cats going through this program to receive a rabies vaccination, cats must be at least 12 weeks of age.

  • No appointment is needed. If you have more than 2 cats to bring in, please contact us at (207) 292-2424 in advance to coordinate.
  • Early morning drop off is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 8:30am and 9am. Please contact us at (207) 292-2424 if you need to arrange to drop off a cat at a different time.
  • Cats are ready to be picked up between 3-4pm the day they receive surgery if you wish them to recover at home. Alternatively, we can provide onsite recovery assistance and hold cats until the following day.
