Sponsor a Cat
$140…that’s the actual cost to Operation Catnip to have a cat spayed or neutered as well as vaccinated against Rabies and FVRCP, protected against fleas and ear-tipped.
Who pays these expenses? We start by asking our fabulous colony caregivers to cover the cost of the spay/neuter surgery ($100 + $13 GST). Obviously, our participating veterinary clinics are also helping by giving us a significant discount on the surgery. And up to this point, Operation Catnip has been covering the additional expenses (including unforeseen medical issues) through our fundraising.
Now, it may be a reasonable request to ask caregivers to cover the cost of surgery if they have one or two cats but what about when they have five, ten or forty!? What if the caregiver has a limited income and wants to do right by the cat but doesn’t have the funds for the surgery?
That’s where Sponsor a Cat comes in.
A donation of $140 will cover the cost of spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, flea medication and ear-tipping. If $140 is too much for you, we would be grateful for any amount you donate. Every dollar helps! Here’s how you can make a donation…

Operation Catnip has provided service for over 800 cats and nearly 200 caregivers since 2013. The minimum cost per cat is $140.00 for vaccinations, parasite treatment, surgery and ear-tip. Some cats require additional help (wound treatment, removal of teeth, antibiotics) which increases our expenses.
Every dollar helps!
