  • If your female is in the early stages of pregnancy or in heat, you will be charged an additional fee along with a high risk surgical waiver.
  • If your male pet’s testicle(s) have not descended the veterinarian will decide if surgery is appropriate based on an exam. Should surgery be available, you will be charged an additional fee along with a high risk surgical waiver.
  • If HSHA’s medical team experiences extreme aggression from your pet during their visit, an additional fee and waiver will be required for the safety of both the staff and your pet. Handling an aggressive animal requires additional medication and safety precautions.

Please note: prices are subject to change based on your pet’s weight and the availability of products/supplies.

Important Information

PROOF OF VACCINES: Proof of vaccination is required at the time of your pet’s appointment. Even if you attended a one of HSHA’s vaccine clinics you still must have the paperwork with you documenting which vaccines your pet received. Please note that a rabies tag is not sufficient proof of vaccination. If you cannot provide proof your pet’s vaccines are up-to-date, they will be administered for $10 per rabies vaccines and distemper combination vaccine.

SURGICAL REQUIREMENTS: To schedule an appointment, your pet:

  • Should be in good health
  • Should not be overweight
  • Should be at least 4 months old
  • Should not be any older than 5 years old (Some larger breed dogs will need to be younger than 5 – just ask at the time you schedule your appointment.).
  • (If a male), should have two testicles that can be felt upon examination
  • If your female dog is in heat, we recommend postponing the surgery until 8-10 weeks after the last signs of heat. If you would still like to proceed with the surgery you will be required to sign a high risk surgical waiver.
  • Please note: We do not spay/neuter small animals such as rabbits.  We also do NOT spay/neuter certain *high risk* breeds such as Dobermans and brachycephalic breeds such as English or French bulldogs, Pugs and Persian cats.


HSHA’s S/N Clinic is available to residents who live in Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties. For those residing in other counties please reference this list of other S/N assistance organizations in the area.


We are currently working through a considerable backlog due to COVID-19. Please note that it can take up to 6 months to receive an appointment. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please note that submitting a request does not guarantee an appointment. If we have availability to schedule your pet someone will contact you after your online submission form has been received. We thank you for your patience and understanding!

PAYMENT INFORMATION & PROCESS: All female canine spay appointments must be prepaid in advance. This can be done over the phone when we are scheduling the appointment with you. This pre-payment is non-refundable if you a no-show to your appointment or if you cancel with less than 48 hours’ notice. For all other surgeries, payment is due in full the day of service with no exceptions. We accept cash or credit/debit cards. No checks.

PRE-OPERATIVE BLOOD WORK: Pre-operative blood work can be performed and is highly recommended, although not required (unless your pet is 4 years old or older). It may uncover an underlying condition that could cause complications during surgery. Blood work provides a basic health pre-anesthetic evaluation and tests minimal values for baselines of young healthy patients. It provides important information regarding body systems for patients being hospitalized, monitored, and undergoing treatment. The cost for this service is $63.75 and payment will be processed one week prior to your pet’s surgery. 

THE DAY OF SURGERY: For ALL animals having surgery – cats and dogs- give NO FOOD AFTER 9 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE SURGERY. Water is OK up until you leave the house on the day of surgery. On the day of surgery, please park on the left side of the parking lot in the designated Veterinary Drop Off parking spaces. Call 717-564-3320 EXT 107 to let us know you are here. Drop off is at 8:30 AM the morning of your appointment. Please allow up to 20 minutes for drop off as you will be required to fill out some paperwork. Dogs must be on a non-retractable leash and cats must be in a hard-sided carrier. Remember to bring proof of vaccination along if your pet is current on vaccines. Pick up is at 2:30 PM the same day in the same manner as drop off. Please allow time to go over post-surgical instructions with a member of our team.

OFFICIAL MEDICAL RECORDS: The paperwork you receive at any of HSHA’s clinics, is your official medical record and proof of vaccination. If you lose this paperwork or require copies of the records, you must request them by contacting HSHA’s Clinic Coordinator at There is a 72 hour processing period and a $15 fee will apply for each duplicate or copy.

Clinic for Holders of Free Municipality Vouchers


If you have received a voucher from your local municipality for a free spay or neuter for a feral cat or pit bull dog, please call HSHA according to the following instructions to make an appointment. Please bring the voucher and a valid driver’s license with you at the time of your appointment.


  • For the safety of the animal and our staff, any cats arriving in cat carriers will be turned away. 
  • ALL feral cats receiving surgery through our feral cat TNR program will have their left ear tipped and a spay/neuter tattoo placed.



This clinic made possible in part by a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The Nobody’s Cats Foundation honors HSHA’s feral-cat spay-neuter vouchers at its spay/neuter surgery clinic, 3909 Hartzdale Drive, Suite 905, Camp Hill (Lower Allen Township). Services are provided by appointment only. For information go to, email, or call 1-855-867-4228.


HSHA does not accept feral cats to be euthanized. The organization only accepts feral cats to be altered and returned to the place from which they came (known as “Trap-Neuter-Return” or “TNR”). In order to receive a FREE Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) surgery for a feral cat, you must obtain a TNR Voucher from the municipality in which you reside. Only municipalities that contract with HSHA for services will have these vouchers to distribute. Each municipality will also determine how many vouchers may be distributed per individual. To find out if your municipality contracts with HSHA for services and if they are distributing TNR vouchers, contact your municipal building directly. Citizens who do not have access to TNR Vouchers may continue to participate in HSHA’s TNR Program on a paid basis. Costs are $45 for a neuter and $65 for a spay, plus additional costs for FeLV/FIV testing and basic vaccinations. An appointment is required for TNR services (regardless of whether you have a voucher). To schedule an appointment, please call HSHA at (717) 564-3320 and follow the recorded prompts.
