The City & County of Honolulu subsidizes free sterilization surgeries at participating spay/neuter clinics on Oahu. Free-Roaming cats are a diverse population that can include feral, abandoned and lost pets, as well as owned cats that are allowed outside. Sterilizing these cats and returning them to the colonies where they make their home is a humane and effective way to reduce this population over time.
When using the services of a Feline Fix provider, all sterilization and microchipping fees are waived for Free-Roaming Cats. There is no need to purchase a certificate, just let the provider know that you’re doing a Feline Fix sterilization.
Services covered under the Feline Fix program
• Anesthesia for the surgery
• Sterilization surgery
• Ear Notch
Each Free-Roaming cat sterilized will be microchipped to the caregiver and an ear notch will be used to denote that the cat has been spayed/neutered. Male cats are notched on the left ear and females on the right.
To access spay/neuter services through this program, please make an appointment at one of the following participating providers.
Participating Veterinary Clinics
Veterinarians decide if animals are medically fit for surgery. Any additional fees could include the cost of medications and services required for treatment related to post-surgical complications.
