the teamcard

This card will show your personal registration and ID number. ONLY on presentation of this card and your personal ID card at the Happy Paws Animal Clinic, we will neuter STRAY cats and dogs brought to us by you personally, free of charge.

Our FREE neutering program is strictly for Stray animals, our Veterinary surgeons are experienced in determining whether the cat you brought in for neutering, is a private house pet or a stray cat that lives on the street. We do neuter private pets, but at the normal fee.

Trap-Neuter-Return

TNR is the most humane and effective way of controlling feral-neighborhood cat populations

Unfortunately we don't have the manpower or resources to catch the animals ourselves, but we do lend out cat traps against a refundable deposit.

Team card holders please take note of the following guidelines when bringing in Dogs/Cats to our clinic for neutering 

  • 12 hours before surgery - NO FOOD.  (dogs/cats)
  • 6 hours before surgery - NO DRINK.   (dogs/cats)
  • Cover cage with light cloth and provide bedding.   (cats)
  • Put a sticker on the cage with the name and the color scheme of the cat.

Neutering explained

Neutering is the surgical removal of the reproductive organs in both male and female dogs.

Castration is the removal of the testicles of the male dog. Spaying is the removal of the ovaries and uterus of the female dog.

With neutering we mean the surgical procedure, and at the discretion of our veterinary surgeon, all medication needed before, during and after this procedure. At the Happy Paws Clinic, our policy* is to make a small cut to the left ear of all STRAY cats neutered by our vets. This is the universal symbol that an outdoor or free-roaming cat has been fixed, to ensure the animal is not presented for neutering at any clinic for a second time, thereby saving time and stress to all concerned. It is done while the cat is under anesthesia and it is painless for the cat.

* This procedure does not apply to private pets.

Why Neuter?

  • Stops pet overpopulation and reduces the number of unwanted pets being killed
  • Reduces your pet’s cancer risk, sterilized pets are healthier
  • Saves on vet bills
  • Eliminates messy and annoying heat cycles
  • Greatly reduces urine spraying and marking
  • Increases your pet’s loyalty
  • Protects children from dog bites, neutering reduces aggression

Neutering Criteria

We will sterilize as young as two months, as long as they weigh two pounds.

If the Cat/Dog is over 6 years old, we recommend a free health check, 3 to 4 days before surgery, to ensure the animal is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia.

With neutering we mean the surgical procedure and (at the discretion of our veterinary surgeon) all medication needed before, during and after this procedure.

Did You Know?

  • One female cat and her offspring can produce over 420,000 cats in seven years!

Myths about Spay/Neuter!

  • Fattening?... It does not make your pet fat, lack of exercise and too much food are responsible for that.
  • Attitude?... It does not change your pet’s identity or personality, pets reproduce from instinct and will live more relaxed and happier lives when sterilized.
  • Stressful?... It is less stressful than having litter after litter of puppies or kittens.
  • Age?... We will sterilize as young as two months as long as they weigh two pounds. We recommend a free health check, 3 to 4 days before surgery. Particularly If the animal is over 6 years old, to ensure it is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia.
