Why are SCFAW clinic prices so affordable?
Our low pricing is made possible by the support of our participating veterinarians, the devotion of our volunteers, and the generosity of our donors. The veterinarians provide their time, services, medical facility, and staff. Our volunteers donate their time and manage all the administrative details for the clinics, such as taking and returning client calls, setting up schedules, checking cats in and releasing them from the clinics, and handling all required paperwork. Our donors provide the additional financial support necessary.
What information should I know to be prepared for my cat to attend a clinic?

Does SCFAW offer spay/neuter services for pet dogs?
No. Discounted canine spay and neuter services are available through Clinton Veterinary Hospital. To make an appointment, please call them directly at 978-368-9047. You can also read about this program online.
I have seen untamed (feral) cats in my area. Can they be spayed or neutered at a CatSNIP Clinic?
No. However, to meet the unique clinic needs of feral cats, various organizations operate special feral cat spay/neuter clinics. These clinics are typically held on Sundays with an all-volunteer staff of veterinarians, technicians, and other volunteers, enabling services to be provided free of charge.
