SF SPCA Community Cat Spay/Neuter (FAQ + hours)
Due to Carnaval Festivities, we expect heavy traffic delays and street closures around the SF SPCA grounds during Memorial Day weekend. Because of this, we will be open for community cats intake at 7am on Sunday, May 26 2013. Please note that parking in our Florida Street lot will not be permitted.
The Community Cats Program offers spay/neuter for feral & free roaming cats. Owned cats and cats slated for adoption or foster programs will not be accepted.
Our entrance is 220 Florida Street.
Drop-off is 8-9:00 a.m. Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday, excluding holidays.
Short term parking is available in the green zone for those dropping off cats.
Look for the red sign and just ring our bell.
No appointment is needed.
Please bring cats in a humane trap or front loading carrier.
All cats taken through our program will receive the following, without exception:
- FelV/FIV test - $25.50
- Microchip: $25.00
- Cats are ready to be picked up the same day at 5:00p.m.
- If you prefer, with advance notice, we can provide day before drop off or on site recovery assistance.
Services are offered free of charge to feral & free roaming cats in San Francisco, however donations are always appreciated, and will enable us to care for more cats. Cats trapped outside of San Francisco are charged a nominal fee. Please call us for details.

Need to rent a trap? We ask a refundable deposit of $60 per rental. Traps are rented by appointment only. Call us at 415 522-3539 to schedule a rental pick up. Please note, we rent traps exclusively for the purpose of trapping a feral cat to bring directly to our program. Traps will not be rented for trapping wildlife or cats bound for a shelter or animal control facility.
