APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED FOR DOGS AND HOUSE CATS
To have your pet spayed or neutered, please call The PAWS Clinic at (313) 451-8200 to schedule an appointment. We experience an extremely high call volume, so please leave a message and we will call you back within one business day to set up your appointment.
Dog appointments are available Monday-Thursday. House cat appointments are available Monday-Wednesday. Drop off time for all appointments is 8:00am. Dogs are discharged promptly at 4:00pm the day of their surgery. Cats spend the night and go home the following morning promptly at 7:30am. Note that a late fee will be charged for failure to pick-up your pet at the scheduled time.
You do not need an appointment if you are bringing in a feral/stray cat in a live trap, however, surgeries for feral cats may be performed the following day if there is no space in the schedule for the day the cat is being dropped off. Our policies for feral/stray cats are very specific and stringent. Please see Feral Cat Surgery and Feral Cat FAQs for more information.
Payment is due at the time you drop off your pet. We accept cash, credit, or debit cards, but no checks or American Express. Care Credit is accepted if there is a Visa or Mastercard symbol on the card. There is a processing fee of up to $3 for all credit/debit card transactions over $25. Please see Fees for a complete list of our services and fees.
Please note that The PAWS Clinic requires full pre-payment of the surgery fee for any client who has failed twice to show up for an appointment, or who has twice given less than 24 hours notice of the need to reschedule an appointment. This pre-payment must be made in person at The PAWS Clinic, and is non-refundable.
