Special Sterilization Program

We offer an affordable sterilization clinic for cats owned by low-income citizens of our partner municipalities.

In addition to supporting families and their pets, this program helps reduce the number of stray cats.

How much does it cost?

The basic fee is $65, plus tax, for both male and female pets. It covers:

  • Spaying or neutering
  • Basic vaccination
  • Painkillers

Fees are payable on the day of the operation, in cash or by credit or debit card. We do not accept personal cheques.

Boarding costs will be added if your pet hasn’t recovered by the anticipated date.

If the cat does not have a municipal licence, its owner must obtain one (except for Boucherville residents).

How to register

Fill out the special sterilization program registration form. We will contact you to check your eligibility and plan an appointment.

Who is eligible?

  1. You will be required to present proof of residence for one of the following cities:
    1. Longueuil (including Saint-Hubert, Lemoyne and Greenfield Park)
    2. Boucherville
    3. Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville
    4. Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu
  2. You must be considered to have a low income, and the number of people in your household is taken into account. We will check this information with you when we call.

Is there a maximum number of sterilizations allowed per citizen?

Yes. All eligible citizens can spay or neuter the number of cats allotted to them by their city’s by-laws.

How does it work?

  • On the day of your appointment, come to the shelter at the scheduled time with your cat in a carrier.
  • On the following day, your cat will be spayed or neutered and given a basic vaccine.
  • You will have to pick up your pet at the pre-determined date and time.
  • You are responsible for administering any necessary treatment to your pet in the days following the operation.
