Spay/Neuter Services

Toronto Humane Society’s Public Veterinary Services clinic operates a limited-service veterinary clinic focused on wellness and preventative care. Our surgical service offers spay and neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. We do not currently provide surgical services for rabbits.

Toronto Humane Society’s Public Veterinary Services operates a high-quality high-volume spay and neuter clinic for cats and dogs. This clinic model provides safe spay and neuter surgeries to large numbers of patients through standardized protocols and efficient techniques. This type of clinic is best suited for healthy cats and dogs undergoing routine surgeries and is not designed to serve the needs of high-risk patients.

Please read our Patient Eligibility Guidelines for more details.

Please see our Spay/Neuter Frequently Asked Questions for more information about our high-quality high-volume spay/neuter clinic model.  

You will receive reminder emails prior to your scheduled appointment with detailed information about preparing for and recovering from surgery.

Affordability of pet care is the largest barrier that pet parents face when trying to provide for their animal. For this reason, we operate on a two-tier fee structure to make essential preventative veterinary care accessible to all. Our standard prices are substantially lower than the industry standard and are therefore already more affordable than a private veterinary clinic. 

Subsidized pricing is available to individuals with proof of one of the following: 

  • Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)
  • Ontario Works (OW)
  • Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) 
  • Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D)

Proof of receipt of one of these programs must be provided at the time of each visit to the clinic and must be registered to the pet owner. For ODSP, OW, GIS, or CPP-D, we require a document that shows your name, what benefit is received, and the most recent statement date. This can be in hardcopy or through the MyBenefits app. For GIS and CPP-D, this is generally a document from the CRA.  

To uphold the integrity of our subsidized pricing initiative for First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and ensure that it benefits those within Indigenous communities, we request documentation to verify Indigenous identity.  

We accept the following forms of documentation:  

  • Certificate of Indian Status (Status Card)
  • Nunavut Trust Certificate card or Inuit Enrollment card
  • Métis Nation citizenship or membership card
    • Citizenship card/letter issued by a First Nation with a modern Treaty and/or self-government agreement
    • Other acceptable documentation such as alternative membership cards or letters from Indigenous communities or organizations, providing attestation to the individual’s Indigenous identity.

If you do not have access to the above-mentioned documentation, please contact us directly at csa@torontohumanesociety.com. We will be glad to support you to ensure that you qualify for this initiative. 

Our discounted prices are made possible by our supporters and generous donations from individuals. If you would like to donate to support our program, please sign up to be a monthly donor.
