High-Quality, High-Volume Spay and Neuter Clinic Guide

Holding a spay and neuter clinic is the best way to improve the lives of as many cats as possible. In assembly line fashion, stations help guide a cat from trap to anesthesia and through surgery to other necessary treatment areas. Stations can include: check-in/registration, anesthesia, prep, surgery, vaccination, grooming, and discharge/recovery. The following outlines Alley Cat Allies’ approach to running a clinic, but there are many different approaches to a successful spay and neuter clinic.
