Animal Overpopulation is a Community Problem

High quality, low-cost spay/neuter services are available to area residents for their cats and dogs. These clinics, intended for area residents who can't afford the spay/neuter fees charged at the vet office or who have an abundance of pets (e.g. cat colonies), are held at least four times a month at the Chemung County SPCA on Rt. 352 between Big Flats, NY, and Elmira, NY.

Our TNR program is for those residents who wish to address cat population problems on their properties. We will assist you in trapping your cats, getting them fixed, and releasing them on your property. No more unwanted kittens!
