Spay & Neuter Programs

We offer low-cost and no-cost spay and neuter programs to encourage families to get their pets fixed. A fixed pet is healthier, happier, and helps to reduce the number of pets going into shelters (and the number of pets euthanized in shelters!). Click below to see if you qualify for any of our free or low-cost spay/neuter specials.

Thanks to our dedicated supporters, invaluable partners, and committed volunteer trappers, we have performed spay/neuter services for thousands of feral cats in our community this year under various programs. The Duval Cat Fix program has ended, but we are pleased to announce we can continue to offer free feral cat surgeries under Rosie’s Fund for feral cats being trapped and cared for in Duval County. This program is limited to six cats per household per month and proof of Duval County residence is required.

For people caring for community cats outside of Duval County, the fee is $40 per cat.

Cats must be in a humane trap. A limited number of traps are available for rent with a $100 refundable deposit.

Feral Freedom

Feral Cat Spay Neuter

When the Feral Freedom program was introduced in 2008, it was the first public-private collaboration in the nation to save all feral, stray and community cats that entered the city’s shelters.

To date, the Feral Freedom program in Jacksonville has saved approximately 50,000 cats from being euthanized at the city shelter, but the impact doesn’t stop there. FCNMHP also mentors other organizations on how to start similar programs. As more and more communities adopt the model, hundreds of thousands of lives have been saved across the country as a result.
