What to expect:

Upon arrival to the shelter at the time of your reservation, please follow the steps below while remaining in your vehicle at all times:

  1. Park in any of the designated purple or green spots labeled “Community Cat/Foster Appointment” or “Vaccine Spay/Neuter Appointment”, which are the parking spots closest to the Low-Cost Vet Clinic entrance. 
  2. Call 702-955-5955 to let the staff know of your arrival, whether you have the TNR Responsibility Agreement filled out already, and the parking spot type and number you are in.
  3. Our receptionists will go over all the necessary information over the phone (including scheduling the pick-up time for the following day) and then send out a staff member to collect the cat(s) and finish all the paperwork.

Please be prepared for a brief wait for processing during drop-off and pick-up. We highly encourage everyone to wear masks for the protection of our staff.

If you are sick or having flu-like symptoms, please do not make a reservation until you are symptom-free for 24-48 hours without the use of symptom-altering medications (such as fever reducers). 

Cats will receive a Rabies and FRCPC vaccine, an ear tip (as in the picture at the top of the page), and be spayed/neutered at NO CHARGE.  Additional preventative care services are not provided. Cats will usually have surgery the same day and be ready to be picked up the next day. Occasionally, surgery discharges may be delayed by one day; in this case, we will attempt to notify you by phone or email. 

Requirements 

  • All cats must arrive in secured humane traps; cats in carriers will not be accepted
  • All cats must be at least 2 months of age or weigh at least 2 pounds
  • All cats must be returned to the original outdoor home where they were trapped and must not be rehomed
  • We are unable to provide “free” spay/neuter services for kittens being removed from the outdoors or owned cats
  • All food and water must be removed after midnight and prior to drop off to avoid surgical complications if possible
