Neuter your cat in our targeted sterilization clinic

The SPCA Laurentides-Labelle is pleased to announce its new targeted permanent sterilization clinic which opened May 12, 2014. Our clinic has been under rigorous examination by the College of Veterinarians of Quebec and has received authorization stating that the staff care, protocols, and locations are appropriate for this type of surgery.

What is a targeted sterilization clinical ?
It is a clinic that focuses on sterilization and has a targeted audience. It may be low-income pet owners, or animals in need, such as stray animals, colonies of cats, or animals from shelters. The care provided to the public are sterilizations, first vaccines and deworming.

Is it free?
No, but the costs are reduced compared to a clinic or animal hospital because we do not offer other veterinary services. You must verify your eligibility for the clinic. If you qualify, we will tell you prices, availability and other details.

Is everyone eligible?
No. You must qualify first. Amongst other things, some animals may be denied because they are considered too risky and therefore have to go through standard veterinary clinics or animal hospitals. In addition, our capacity is limited since we put the priority on the care and surgery of animals in our adoption center. The waiting time may be longer than in a clinic or animal hospital.

How do I know if I qualify?
Contact us at 819 326-4059 or visit us during our operating hours, between 1 pm and 6 pm, seven days a week. We will help you to fill out a questionnaire to see if you are eligible for the services of our targeted sterilization clinic. This process will take less than 10 minutes.

What if you or your pet does not qualify?
Immediately contact your local veterinarian to determine their rates and terms of surgery. Sterilization remains a major tool for the health and well-being of your pet. At the same time, you will help curb pet overpopulations, which have reached alarming proportions in the Laurentians.

Together we can make a difference to prevent overpopulation and animal misery!

You qualified and have an appointment. What else do you need to know or do?

We have set an appointment with you for your pet. Here are a few things you need to know to prepare.

Make note of the date of your appointment. We count on your attendance. In the event that you are absent at the time provided in our agenda, the rescheduling of your appointment will unfortunately be postponed to the end of our waiting list. In addition, a $25 fee will be charged to cover the inconvenience of your absence.

Absence? - Please let us know 24 hours in advance. If you cannot attend the scheduled time, notify us as soon as possible. By contacting us at least 24 hours in advance, this will allow us to offer your place to another customer. This also prevents the $25 penalty and will not deprive other animals of this valuable service.

Water + 1/3 food. Leave water available for your pet at all times. The morning of the surgery, do serve a light meal equivalent to one third of its usual portion. Make sure your dog has relieved itself before your trip to the SPCA.

Vaccination. We do not force you to vaccinate before having your pet sterilized, but we strongly recommend it, in order to help protect your pet from any unwanted microbes, as well as to protect those pets coming in after yours on the same day. For maximum efficiency, the vaccine should be administered at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.

Individual cages or leash. All cats should arrive in an individual and safe transport cage. Ideally, the cage should have a towel on the bottom and be large enough for your cat to rest, lying on its side. If you do not have a cage, do not worry: we can accommodate you by providing you with a transport box for just a few dollars. Make sure your dog is on a leash and in control as it will be in a strange place.

Arrival: 8:00 to 8:30 a.m. Please be punctual!  After that time, we will have to lock the doors in order to do our work.

Signatures and payment. Please allow a few minutes to read and sign the forms at the time of admission. We use these as guidance and authorization to perform all the care required for each patient. Payment for services is also done in the morning. This allows an easier discharge of the animal later in the afternoon when you return.

Contact. We will need a phone number to reach you at any time during the day in case of unforeseen emergency. Thank you for organizing yourself for that!

Departure: between 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. You can pick up your companion at the end of the day. You will receive a sheet of recommendations that we invite you to read and follow carefully.

Complementary services

Vaccines. We can take advantage of having your pet at the clinic for sterilization and administer one or more vaccines: The vaccine against RABIES (a fatal disease in animals and/or humans) protects your pet for 1 year. Vaccine BASE (cat: panleukopenia, rhinotracheitis, calicivirus) or (dogs: distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza) protects your pet for 30 days. The vaccine against kennel cough (bordetella) is also offered for dogs and protects for one year. You can later contact your veterinarian to continue vaccinations and boost immunity in your pet for a longer period.

Parasites. We can also take the opportunity to treat your pet with an anti-parasitic product. Ask us for more information if you are interested in this option.

You are now well prepared!

We look forward to seeing you and your four-legged friend soon
