Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Release Program
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley offers a Trap-Neuter-Release program package price: $50 includes spay or neuter surgery, a spay incision line tattoo, an FeLV/FIV test, a rabies vaccination, and a FVRCP vaccination. In addition to the sterilization surgery, one ear is tipped (notched horizontally) while the animal is under anesthesia. The ear is tipped to help easily identify those altered feral animals at a distance, so that they do not need to be anesthetized again in the future in order to determine if a spay/neuter has been performed.

Feral cats must be inside their traps when they are brought to the clinic for surgery. Clients should bring a cat carrier to transport the cat home.We recommend clients consider providing a safe indoor location (such as a garage) for the cat to stay in for the night(s) following surgery.

Female rabbit spay: $165
Guinea pig neuter: $105
Rat neuter: $105

Male rabbits may be neutered at three to four months of age, or older.  Female rabbits may be spayed at six months of age, or older.  Small mammals should arrive to the clinic in an appropriate cage or carrier.

Spay/Neuter Assistance for Low-Income Families

The veterinary clinic offers the SHARE Program, which provides discounts on medical care (including spay/neuter surgeries) to clients who qualify as low income. In this way, we can ensure that companion animals receive proper medical care and remain in their homes with their guardians. This program is limited to families living in Boulder or Broomfield counties. To see if you qualify for the SHARE program, bring proof of residence and income to our veterinary clinic during regular business hours. Please note, HSBV cannot review applications for the SHARE program over the phone.
