Spay and Neuter: Free-Roaming Cats

Hawaiian Humane supports the Trap Neuter Return Manage (TNRM) strategy as a humane way to lower the Free-Roaming cat population over time. 

The Hawaiian Humane Society’s Ginny Tiu Community Spay/Neuter Center is a specialized high-quality high-volume spay/neuter clinic designed to increase the availability of affordable cat and dog spay/neuter services for the community.  

Spay/neuter procedures for Free-Roaming cats include anesthesia, surgery, microchip, ear notch, FVRCP vaccine and post-operative pain medication.

Free-Roaming Cat Spay/Neuter surgeries are booked by online appointment. All online requests are first-come, first-serve for Wednesdays and Thursdays; 1 cat per appointment.

If a Free-Roaming cat is intended to become an indoor pet, an appointment can be scheduled online and this intent should be noted on the online application.

This is a same-day procedure, meaning all Free-Roaming cats must be picked up the day of their procedure.
