Tel # - 905-898-6112

Chris is there an area restriction....like do you need to live in GTA to use this service...I have a cousin in Brampton who keeps finding stray cats 5 so far and she has had two done since Nov. but at $225.00 a pop she says she can't afford the last one for a bit.

There are NO area restrictions. My daughter said last night that they are also offering vaccinations for $10.00, she wasn't sure which ones in particular but is going to find out today.

I will call them later to find out as much info as possible (I did already, but I think I was too early and reached a recording).

Here is the link for Spay Central, it says to open in March but it is open now. http://www.spaycentral.com/en/

For anyone not familiar with Newmarket, it is easy to reach using the 400 series highways and has a huge mall and box stores coming out of their ying yang :sad:

Most importantly they have about a dozen TIMMIES :D

Thats such great news. This will make it so much easier on rescues!!! So many adopt dogs for way less than vaccines and s/ning costs.

February 6th, 2009, 12:27 PM
I tried calling again when I lost my connection, no go, so I sent them an email which they responded to stating that:

"they are receiving a large number of calls and to leave name and number, it may take 24 hours to return the call, but that they will get back to you"

Luba told me any cat/dog has to be up to date with their vaccines,before they can be s/n,which might make it difficult if you bring in a stray.
But then again,you'd probably had him/her at a regular vet already:confused:

I called the clinic Chico and they said that it is not mandatory, I have amended my original post.

I was told that even though it is advisable, they realize that with Stray/Feral populations it is highly unlikely. That clients would be advised of the potential risks involved if an animal is not already vaccinated.

This is awesome news! I have donated so many times for this and was really hoping someday it would come true! I recall Petsmart was going to anty up 1/2 the cost and then donations for the rest...not sure if this is the same location but it doesnt matter! what a great way to promote this issue!

Way to go!! Lets see how this helps the overpopulation of animals!!

I was wondering if Marko could make this a link somewhere on the site? I think its a great way help people in need.

Its walk in, quick and cheap.

now there is no reason not to fix and vaccinate your pets!!

because there are no more excuses they should now make it manditory to have your pet fixed unless your are a licensed breeder!

I just thought that this deserved a bump for any new members to the forum.

:confused: I saw that bemonchu deleted their post telling of their experience with the clinic, I remember reading it at the time and it was very positive...hmmmm

I am just bumping this up for the sake of any new members who are not aware of the clinic.

Be warned that there is a lengthy waiting list.....so if you are thinking of getting a new kitten S/N in a few months time BOOK NOW.

Although there are vets that don't charge much over $50 for s/n (like mine:lovestruck:), they are not easy to find. It's so great to have a large clinic devoted mainly to s/n, and without 'restrictions' (income/area/prior vacs) :thumbs up.

Hopefully the waiting lists at Spay Central, in addition to their no doubt impressive stats re: s/n, will convince some 'people with power' to get on the bandwagon (municipal elections this fall!!)...or we small people can keep banding together :rolleyes:.

Here's to low cost s/n clinics becoming as ubiquitous as...McDonald's et al.

January 21st, 2010, 09:40 PM
Kashtin do you have the numbers of some of these vets?

You would think a low income clinc advertised as helping Torontonians would be in Toronto. I can't go there because I don't drive. Newmarket is not Toronto. Most people who needs this won't be able to get there. Now there is a waiting list?

The other site is still out of service.
the one for Toronto Animal services is.

The cheap vaccination clinc is right across the street form Kennedy station.

An appointment is needed and the waiting list is lengthy.

I don't know if taxes are included or not....As I said previously the waiting list is lengthy.....they will s/n any animal regardless of where they came from.

how lengthy is they waiting list?

Like currently 12-16 weeks to get a return call lengthy.. and who knows how long beyond that for an appointment.

I'm glad there is so much interest. It should cut down on the unwanted pet population. Sadly there need to be more places like it as the wait is so long that people who should get pets altered may not.

From what I understand Toronto Animal Services perform cheaper S/N services....Also the OSPCA in Barrie have a S/N clinic.

Just a note for anyone who is following this thread - or who finds it in a search like I did: just had our female chocolate lab spayed at the OSPCA clinic in Barrie this past Thursday. They did an absolutely EXCELLENT job - very caring and extremely organized. We've had absolutely no complications whatsoever. Downside: long wait times - currently an 8 month wait list for female dogs (Newmarket is no longer taking them) and five months for male dogs and all cats. I have to say, though, that we were so impressed with the level of care and professionalism that, in spite of the long waits, I've already called to make an appointment for our new puppy - and we won't even have her until sometime mid-November!

CURRENT FEES (as of Oct 2010)

$110 - large female dog spay
$ 15 - microchip
$ 10 - rabies vaccine (3 yrs)
$ 10 - Meloxicam/Derapen/DA2PPv vaccine(s)
$ -0 - nail trim
$ 15 - eCollar (optional if you have your own, but you'll pay at least $25-35 at local pet stores)

I just had my cat spayed at the newmarket location on Friday. So far so good. i do agree that the incision looked very clean and neat. The only downside is that when I took my girl home she looked soo out of it. In the past when I picked up cats/dogs from such procedures they were almost fully awake and functioning, maybe a little disoriented but that it. This time my girl was so out of it it looked like she jsut woke up 10 minutes ago.... not sure if thats normal or not. But otherwise i was very happy with the staff. they were very helpful, answered all the questions and everything was very organized.

I guess that would depend on what time she was spayed Masha.

Regarding Bella's Family statement that Newmarket is not taking female dogs.....I'll get Ethel to check it out.
