Overview of Clinic Registration

Thank you for your interest in our clinic and spaying and neutering! Below you will find a step by step guide on the process to register cats for our clinic.

What Cats Do We Accept?

Operation Catnip Stillwater only accepts unowned, free-roaming, feral, community cats from Stillwater and surrounding communities. Beginning in 2018, we will be limiting our registrations from addresses outside Stillwater to better serve Stillwater residents.

Trap Cats

Each cat must arrive in a separate trap to the clinic. Traps are available for rent at our Trap Depot. The Depot is located behind the Stillwater Animal Welfare at 1710 S. Main Street. Trap rental requires a deposit for residents not residing within Stillwater that will be returned during trap collection.

For more information please visit our Trap Depot page

Attend Clinic

The clinic is held within the basement of Oklahoma State Veterinary Hospital. Please follow the signs to the doors on the west side of the building. The entrance for clinic check-in is located opposite the large parking lot by the dumpsters. It is important that each cat arrives in a separate humane trap. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cats in carriers or cardboard boxes. Check-In for the clinic is between 7:30 and 9:30 the morning of each clinic. You are welcome to bring the cats anytime during this check-in period. Your pick-up time will be given to you following check-in. We base pick up times on when you arrive at the clinic - the first cats to arrive will be the first cats done and will therefore be ready to go home first. If you have any further questions, please refer to our Pre-Operative Instructions

Release Cats

Cats will be discharged the afternoon of the clinic - an approximate time will be given to you during check-in. We recommend releasing cats the morning after the clinic to allow time for the anesthesia to completely wear off before the cats are returned to their original environments. Please refer to the Discharge Instructions for further details.

Return Traps

Borrowed traps need to be returned to the Trap Depot following the clinic. Deposits for trap rental will be returned during this time. Hours for the depot can be found here and are also provided during check-in.
