Prices and Financial Policies at Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic

In order to qualify for services at the Luke and Lily Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic, a shelter or rescue organization must submit proof of 501(c)(3) status or be a town or city animal control officer. In most cases, private owners must have been referred from a low-cost assistance program (such as the Massachusetts Spay/Neuter Assistance Program) in order to qualify for services.

Payment for services is due when the animal is picked up. The Lerner Spay/Neuter Clinic accepts cash or checks (made out to “Trustees of Tufts University”). Payment by credit card is also available using our online system. Billing arrangements can be made only for our regular shelter clients. Services for the ISAAST (Junior Spay program) are free of charge. To offset the cost of our Community Cat spay/neuter services cats in a trap are charged $25. All other services involve a fee, as listed below for your convenience.
