Thanks to special grants and the generous donations of individuals, the MSPCA at Nevins Farm is able to offer low-cost spay-neuter services for cats and kittens who live in designated communities, including Lawrence, Haverhill and Methuen.
The spay-neuter package is $10, and includes, the spay or neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, FVRCP (distemper)vaccination, nail trim and flea treatment. A microchip (a form of permanent identification) can be included for an additional $10.

The "CatMobile" program offers affordable spay-neuter surgeries and vaccines to the cats of Merrimack Valley families in need of financial assistance.

*Why we offer this program:
More than three-quarters of the animals entering area animal shelters are cats. In 2011, of the over 7500 homeless animals served by MSPCA at Nevins Farm, more than 3,750 were cats. We must reduce the number of litters born to cats. This grant will help us assist those community members who want to neuter their cat but have no financial resources to do so.
*Why Lawrence, Haverhill, and Methuen?
Of the 100s of towns the MSPCA at Nevins Farm served in 2011, a large majority of the kittens came from this community! Our plan is to strategically reach the people whose cats are most likely to have kittens that end up homeless. And our statistics tell us to start in these zip codes.
