Spaying/Neutering

In the state of Minnesota, humane societies (WAHS included) cannot spay, neuter, give vaccinations, or perform other vet services for the public unless it is part of a TNR (explained below).  We suggest contacting area vets (listed below) to discuss pricing and arrangements for vet care for your pet(s). Another option may be MNSnap if you meet their low-income criteria. They are a traveling, low-cost spay/neuter service and can be contacted at 612-720-8236 or by visiting www.mnsnap.org. If you are not a Minnesota resident, the ASPCA has a low-cost spay/neuter database (click here).

TNR Program

Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) is the method of humanely trapping feral cats, having them spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and then returning them to their home. TNR requires a colony caretaker who provides food, adequate shelter and monitors the cats’ health. TNR has been shown to be the least costly as well as the most efficient and humane way of stabilizing feral cat populations. TNR helps the community by stabilizing the population of the feral colony and, over time, reducing it.
