Get Your Cat Neutered for a Nickel

Adoption Special Until May 12

Get your cat neutered for just 5 cents during Nickel Neutering! Make an appointment with us on Tuesday, February 25, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Here’s a few things to know about Nickel Neutering:

  • Make an appointment by calling 972-769-4360.
  • Bring your cat in a pet carrier with your name.
  • Written proof of his current rabies and FVRCP vaccinations must be provided or, if needed, can be administered for $9.95 for one shot or $19.95 for both.
  • You can also get him microchipped for $10.
  • You do not have to live in Plano to participate.
  • Cats belonging to Plano residents are required to have their city registration up to date. City registration for each cat is only $10 or $5 if the owner is a senior citizen or has proof of being low-income. Visit plano.gov/RegisterPet for information on registration.
  • Cats must be at least 8 weeks old and 2 and 1/2 pounds

Nickel Neutering appointments are limited to 100 cats, so call our Animal Shelter today at (972) 769-4360.

If you can’t make this event, check out the Plano Animal Shelter’s listing of local low cost spay and neuter services.

Benefits of neutering your cat include:

  • He’ll have less urge to spray urine and the scent is less intense.
  • Your cat’s instinct to defend his territory is reduced so he’s less likely to fight and get injured.
  • You’ll lower his risk of getting feline leukemia and feline AIDS - both spread by bites from infected cats - and diseases related to cat mating.
  • Neutering prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems in cats.

Call us today at 972-769-4360 to make a Nickel Neutering appointment for your cat!
