Our clinic, located inside the Brooklyn Cat Cafe, is now open! We are offer low-cost spay/neuter services for owned pets as well as surgical and medical services to rescuers working with homeless cats. Discounts are available for individuals on public assistance and feral cats being TNRed.
**Please note: Our focus is on low-cost, high-quality veterinary services so our administration/reception services are very limited. Appointments must be booked online and we have very limited administrative assistance prior to your appointment. We appreciate your understanding.
Both pet owners and rescuers can book an appointment using our reservation system for spay/neuter services (available to owned AND homeless cats).
Rescuers are also welcome to book an appointment at our rescue clinic for exams and services (ONLY available for homeless cats).
Each cat must have an individual appointment. Healthy kittens may be booked two per appointment for the rescue clinic.
Rescuers, TNR certified individuals and people helping homeless cats please register here before booking services. Pet owners do not need to register.

In 2020, BBAWC received a grant from GS Humane to open a low cost clinic to provide basic rescue services to the rescue community and low cost spay-neuter services and to provide support for the individual rescuers and small rescue groups who rescue so many of New York City’s homeless animals but have limited access to low cost basic rescue services. We hope to reduce the financial burden of rescue so that more cats can be adopted or TNR’d and reduce the homeless cat population in New York City. In 2021 Bissel Pet Foundation provided a grant to offer a subsidy for spay/neuter services for low income pet owners. In 2021 ASPCA provided a grant to offer a subsidy for spay/neuter services for feral cats. These subsidized services can be booked through our reservation system.
