UCAN Nonprofit Pet Care Clinic

Low-Cost Spay & Neuter and Veterinary Care for Greater Cincinnati

Vision & Mission

OUR VISION is a community without homeless pets where all residents have access to quality, affordable spay/neuter, veterinary care, and other resources to help keep their pets in their loving homes.

OUR MISSION is ending the euthanasia of cats and dogs in local shelters and keeping pets in their loving homes by providing professional and affordable spay/neuter and wellness services.

Spay/Neuter Surgeries Completed Since Opening:



Cats and Dogs in Your Community Need Your Help!

Thanks to your support, UCAN has accomplished over 150,000 spay/neuter surgeries since opening!!

These surgeries have prevented hundreds of thousands of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, resulting in a substantial decrease in the number of homeless animals euthanized each year.

However, there are still hundreds of homeless cats and dogs in our local shelters and thousands of stray cats living outside that need help with spay/neuter. We are also proactively trying to prevent pets that already have loving homes from being surrendered to shelters because their owners cannot afford the needed veterinary care. By providing spay/neuter surgery and the veterinary care these pets need, we can keep families together!

Please help save the lives of these animals by making a tax-deductible donation today!


Winter Community Cat Surgery Protocol

Please do not trap outdoor cats if it is 40 degrees or below.

For their safety, we do not accept outdoor cats in traps for surgery if it is 40 degrees or below on the day you trap OR if it is forecasted to be 40 degrees or below during the week after trapping (the surgery recovery period).

The only exception is if you have a safe, heated environment in which the cat can recover for 7 days after surgery, where it will have access to food and water (i.e., a temperature-controlled garage, barn, basement, etc.).

We take the safety of all pets we see very seriously. If cats with shaved bellies recovering from surgery are put back outside in frigid temperatures, they can die of hypothermia or other complications.

Thank you for helping community cats!


Your support saves lives!!!

Because of you, sweet Precious’ life was saved. When she became very ill, her owner Mindy was told by an emergency veterinary clinic that Precious would die unless she had $2,600+ for diagnostics and surgery.

Mindy was devastated, she did not have that kind of money and could not imagine life without her best friend and faithful companion. She thought her only choices were to let Precious die or surrender her to a shelter that could get her the medical care she needed.

Fortunately, someone told her about us! Precious had a pyometra infection - a life-threatening uterine infection that typically affects older, intact (not sterilized) female dogs. Immediate spay surgery to remove the uterus was necessary to try to save her life. We provided the surgery, antibiotics, fluids, and other services that Precious needed for a price Mindy could afford.

Precious recovered and at her follow-up exam was back to giving her mom unconditional love, companionship, and kisses!
