Feral Cat Services
Feral Cat Package
PHS/SPCA offers San Mateo County only residents this package in order to make using our services easy and to continue offering discounted services to people who need assistance with feral cats. It includes vaccines as age appropriate, ear tipping, FIV/FeLV tests, and spay/neuter surgery for just $50 (or free with a county voucher). Those who have successfully trapped a feral cat can call 650-340-7022, ext. 679 and leave a message. Please note currently we are only taking appointment requests on Mondays after 3 p.m. Please call us at 650-340-7022 ext. 679 on Mondays after 3 p.m. and leave a message. A member of our staff will return your call to schedule an appointment.
We alter feral cats on weekdays by appointment only. For more information about spay or neutering feral cats at PHS/SPCA please click here
New Agreement for Feral Cat Caregivers
PHS/SPCA will be asking caretakers of feral cats to agree to provide certain basic care to cats they bring to us for spay/neuter. Please click here for more information
We encourage TTVAR (trap, test, vaccinate, alter, return) where caretakers are willing and able to provide ongoing care for ferals. We will offer trap rentals ($50 deposit and $1/day rental fee) through our Coyote Point Shelter. Please visit during normal open hours or call 650-340-7022 ext. 339 for information on renting a trap.
If you found an underage kitten or kittens (underage is defined as “still nursing and less than 8 weeks old”) and plan to care for the kitten/s on your own, please use our Fostering Kittens: Getting Started Guide to help you on this journey. We provide starter kits at our 12 Airport Blvd location, and they are also available at most pet supply stores. This is guidance only for individuals who have found a stray kitten and want to keep the kitten and provide care on their own; it is not guidance for PHS/SPCA foster volunteers.
