Low-Cost Spay & Neuter
Participate in Moby Kit Rescue's Project Snip Program
Moby Kit Rescue is fiercely committed to reducing homeless and companion animal overpopulation in Southcoast MA through spay and neuter initiatives. Since spaying/neutering an animal can be a costly procedure that is out-of-reach for many families, we have implemented Project Snip as a way to make this life-saving surgery available to more people in the community. There are many benefits of spaying/neutering your cat including fewer unwanted litters, a cleaner home, less risk of roaming, more predictable behavior and a reduced risk of cancer and pyometra in females.
What Is Included?
We will schedule your cat for a spay/neuter surgery through our partner vet and handle all transportation to and from the appointment. Your cat will receive an examination from a licensed veterinarian, as well as the following: sterilization (spay/neuter), rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, dewormer medication, deflea medication and a microchip.
How Can I Participate?
Participating in Project Snip is simple! To start, speak with a Moby Kit Rescue board member to confirm the availability of an appointment for your cat. They will share a consent form with you, as well as payment details.
Once the consent form has been completed and payment has been made, then your cat will be scheduled for a spay/neuter surgery at one of our partner veterinarians. This date will be confirmed with you to ensure that it works with your schedule. You would need to drop your cat off at a pre-determined location and then pick them up two days later. Your cat is transported to and from the appointment by our team and kept overnight at the veterinary office for observation.
What Should I Expect?
The sterilization surgery (spay/neuter) is done at a vet’s office under general anesthesia. Your cat will not feel a thing, nor be aware of what’s happening, as it will be asleep throughout the entire process. For male cats, a small incision is made in the testicles and they are removed. The incision is then closed with dissolvable sutures or surgical glue. For female cats, there is a slightly larger incision made to remove the ovaries and uterus, however the recovery time is typically no more than 3-5 days.
