Check-in is between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. for dogs, domestic cats, and feral cats. Arriving past 8:30 a.m. will result in a $20 late fee and/or forfeiture of your appointment. 

Payment for services is due the morning of your pet’s appointment. Surgery will not be performed without full payment. Spay Memphis accepts cash and debit/credit cards as payment.

Please note: If your pet is actively taking a steroid-based medication or in the midst of heartworm treatment, they may not be eligible for spay/neuter. Please email for more medication. This DOES NOT include heartworm preventatives, such as Heartguard.

The night before your appointment, do not feed your pet after midnight; water is okay. Do not feed your pet breakfast the morning of their surgery.

All dogs MUST be on a leash or in a pet carrier. All domestic (pet) cats must arrive in a carrier or trap. Domestic cats can arrive in the same carrier, but ALL cats must leave in separate carriers. We have cardboard carriers available for $5 if needed. Feral/community cats must arrive in a live, humane trap.

An intake form and surgery release must be completed the morning of your pet’s surgery. If we have your email on file, you will have the option to complete this digitally and it will be sent to your email. If not, paper versions are available below or at our clinic on the morning of your appointment. One per pet must be filled out.

Disclaimer: Spay Memphis reserves the right to refuse service to anyone arriving after our check-in time of 8:30 a.m. Arriving after the clinic’s check-in time may forfeit your appointment slot.
