Applications for an available spot will open on Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The first ten applicants with a cat that meets the qualifications will be accepted.

“The City of Kingston has been in desperate need of a permanent spay/neuter clinic,” says Executive Director Gord Hunter.

“We’re thrilled to offer this community service, and while we’re starting with a lower number of spay and neuters, once our team gets trained in high volume technics, we will be able to increase the number of surgeries we can offer per month.”
