We provide low-cost
spay/neuter for cats & dogs
along with other services
at the time of surgery
throughout Connecticut & beyond
Nutmeg Spay/Neuter Clinic has performed almost 20,000 surgeries on cats and dogs in our community, moving to end pet overpopulation. Our clinic is currently open Monday through Thursday and performs roughly 30 cat and dog sterilizations per day including vaccinations for rabies and distemper and other services. Our plan is to offer education to the community for responsible pet care, support for feral cat colonies, and work with area rescues to help the animals.
Nutmeg is NOT a full-service veterinarian nor do we offer appointments for vaccines or other services only as a regular veterinary hospital would. We specialize in spay/neuter surgery with added services only at the time of surgery. Our mission is to provide a low-cost option in order to halt pet overpopulation and illness.
PLEASE NOTE: The State of Connecticut Low-Income Pet Sterilization Program is accepting applications for low-income vouchers. These applications are available in English and Spanish. Complete and mail the form, and if you qualify, you should receive your voucher(s) within a couple of weeks. For those people who have already received vouchers, Nutmeg will accept them along with the following copays: $20 for a full-breed pit bulls amd pit bull mixes; $50 for all other breed dogs; $20 for cats. These fees apply to rescue groups as well. The voucher, which covers the spay/neuter surgery, rabies and distemper vaccines, is valid for 60 days from the day it was issued. We will not accept expired vouchers. Payment is required prior to the appointment.
Beginning January 1, 2017, please note the following new policies:
- Dog checkout is 3 p.m., cat checkout is 4 p.m.
Please be on time or you will incur a late fee of $15 after the first 30 minutes and $15 for every 30 minutes thereafter.
- As always, payment is due at the time of booking your appointment, and you may pay by credit card on the phone or come to our clinic at 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday to book and pay in cash; we cannot secure your appointment without prepayment. If you decide to cancel your appointment for a nonmedical reason, you will be refunded your payment minus a 20% processing fee.
If our veterinarian discovers your pet is not able to have surgery for a medical reason and has not been premedicated, you will be refunded the full amount of your payment.
- We understand that for reasons beyond your control, you might miss your appointment. We are willing to reschedule you once at no extra cost. However, if you miss your appointment a second time, you will be charged a $25 rescheduling fee for your next appointment. We encourage you to commit to your appointment.
