Spay/Neuter Clinic

HSHA provides a Spay/Neuter Clinic for owned cats and dogs at HSHA.

Update: As of June we have started to reschedule appointments through our S/N clinic. We are currently working our way through a considerable backlog due to COVID-19. Due to this we expect to be booked out through September. Please reach back out to us at if you are still in need of assistance at that time. We are not currently taking names for a wait list.

  • If your female is in the early stages of pregnancy or in heat, you will be charged an additional fee along with a high risk surgical waiver.
  • If your male pet’s testicle(s) have not descended the veterinarian will decide if surgery is appropriate based on an exam. Should surgery be available, you will be charged an additional fee along with a high risk surgical waiver.
  • If HSHA’s medical team experiences extreme aggression from your pet during their visit, an additional fee and waiver will be required for the safety of both the staff and your pet. Handling an aggressive animal requires additional medication and safety precautions.

Please note: prices are subject to change based on your pet’s weight and the availability of products/supplies.

Important Information

PROOF OF VACCINES: Proof of vaccination is required at the time of your pet’s appointment. Even if you attended a one of HSHA’s vaccine clinics you still must have the paperwork with you documenting which vaccines your pet received. Please note that a rabies tag is not sufficient proof of vaccination. If you cannot provide proof your pet’s vaccines are up-to-date, they will be administered for $10 per rabies vaccines and distemper combination vaccine.

SURGICAL REQUIREMENTS: To schedule an appointment, your pet:

  • Should be in good health
  • Should not be overweight
  • Should be at least 4 months old
  • Should not be any older than 5 years old (Some larger breed dogs will need to be younger than 5 – just ask at the time you schedule your appointment.).
  • (If a male), should have two testicles that can be felt upon examination
  • If your female dog is in heat, we recommend postponing the surgery until 8-10 weeks after the last signs of heat. If you would still like to proceed with the surgery you will be required to sign a high risk surgical waiver.


HSHA’s S/N Clinic is available to residents who live in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties. For those residing in other counties please reference the list of other S/N assistance organizations listed at the very bottom of this page. 

Scheduling an appointment can be done over the phone, or via email.  HSHA’s Clinic Coordinator can be reached at 717-564-3320, ext. 111 or by emailing us below.


Our spay/neuter clinic is very popular and we receive a high volume of phone calls and emails every day.  As such, it may be up to one week before you receive a response. We appreciate your patience. (Messages are not generally picked up, or responded to, on Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays.) In addition, please note that we schedule surgeries for the S/N clinic up to 3 months into the future.

PAYMENT INFORMATION & PROCESS: When you schedule an appointment, a $25 non-refundable deposit for each animal is required to hold your appointment. No exceptions will be made. The $25 will go toward the cost of surgery. If you do not show up for your appointment or do not cancel within 48 hours of the scheduled date, the deposit will NOT be refunded. A new deposit will be collected if you wish to reschedule or you may be asked to pay in full. HSHA’s staff will do their best to schedule your pet’s surgery with the next available appointment, but the wait may be long. Typically, an appointment will be scheduled several weeks in advance, but during busier times of the year we might have to schedule your pet’s surgery a few months into the future.

PRE-OPERATIVE BLOOD WORK: Pre-operative blood work can be performed and is highly recommended, although not required (unless your pet is 4 years old or older). It may uncover an underlying condition that could cause complications during surgery. Blood work provides a basic health pre-anesthetic evaluation and tests minimal values for baselines of young healthy patients. It provides important information regarding body systems for patients being hospitalized, monitored, and undergoing treatment. The cost for this service is $50 and payment will be processed one week prior to your pet’s surgery. 

THE DAY OF SURGERY: For ALL animals having surgery – cats and dogs- give NO FOOD AFTER 9 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE SURGERY. Water is OK up until you leave the house on the day of surgery. On the day of surgery, please park on the left side of the parking lot in the designated Veterinary Drop Off parking spaces. Cats should be dropped off between 8:30 am – 9:00 am. Dogs should be dropped off between 9:00 am – 9:30 am. Dogs must be on a non-retractable leash and cats must be in a hard-sided carrier.  Please allow yourself enough time to fill out the necessary paperwork. Remember to bring proof of vaccination along if your pet is current on vaccines. Your pet will be ready to go home the same day. When you schedule your appointment, you will be given a pick up time between 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm. You will pick up your pet in the same process as which you dropped off. Please allow time to go over post-surgical instructions with a member of our team.

OFFICIAL MEDICAL RECORDS: The paperwork you receive at any of HSHA’s low-cost clinics, is your official medical record and proof of vaccination. If you lose this paperwork or require copies of the records, you must request them by contacting HSHA’s Clinic Coordinator at There is a 72 hour processing period and a $15 fee will apply for each duplicate or copy.

This clinic made possible in part by a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The Nobody’s Cats Foundation honors HSHA’s feral-cat spay-neuter vouchers at its spay/neuter surgery clinic, 3909 Hartzdale Drive, Suite 905, Camp Hill (Lower Allen Township). Services are provided by appointment only. For information go to, email, or call 1-855-867-4228.


HSHA does not accept feral cats to be euthanized. The organization only accepts feral cats to be altered and returned to the place from which they came (known as “Trap-Neuter-Return” or “TNR”). In order to receive a FREE Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) surgery for a feral cat, you must obtain a TNR Voucher from the municipality in which you reside. Only municipalities that contract with HSHA for services will have these vouchers to distribute. Each municipality will also determine how many vouchers may be distributed per individual. To find out if your municipality contracts with HSHA for services and if they are distributing TNR vouchers, contact your municipal building directly. Citizens who do not have access to TNR Vouchers may continue to participate in HSHA’s TNR Program on a paid basis. Costs are $45 for a neuter and $65 for a spay, plus additional costs for FeLV/FIV testing and basic vaccinations. An appointment is required for TNR services (regardless of whether you have a voucher). To schedule an appointment, please call HSHA at (717) 564-3320 and follow the recorded prompts.


HSHA is now offering humane traps for rental to assist with the trapping of feral cats for the Trap-Neuter-Return program. We will require a $60 credit card deposit per trap. Once the trap is returned the $60 fee will be refunded to your credit card. Traps will be available on a first come first serve basis and can be picked up any time during normal business hours. Traps are asked to be returned within 7 days. If an extension is needed please notify staff.
