for shelters, rescues and community cats

Smoky’s Spay & Neuter Clinic

The Richmond SPCA Smoky’s Spay & Neuter Clinic, located at 7088 Mechanicsville Turnpike, opened in 2022. This satellite location provides sterilization services to shelter and rescue organizations and community cat caregivers performing Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR). 

We request that all patient communications with our staff come from an authorized representative of the public shelter or private rescue organization that has custody of the animal.


Smoky’s Spay & Neuter Clinic is not a full-service veterinary hospital. We provide spay and neuter surgeries as well as limited additional services on the day of the sterilization procedure.


Please contact us at 804-368-6232 and/or for information and instructions for scheduling. Our services are available to pets in the care of local government animal control agencies and private rescue organizations (registered 501c3s).

No-show policy: If you do not keep an appointment that you scheduled, we will charge the full cost of the sterilization surgery. To avoid this charge, please cancel your appointment at least 24 business hours in advance of the scheduled  appointment. Our business hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m..

Costs and Fees

Each surgery fee covers the sterilization and post-operative pain injection. Oral medication will be sent home with the patient at the discretion of the veterinarian.

If you are concerned that one of the pets in your care is pregnant, please email us at for assistance and more information.

What to Expect the Day of Surgery

Drop off: 8 a.m. (arrivals after 8:15 a.m. will require rescheduling and will be considered no-shows and billed accordingly)

Upon arrival, please form a line at the Smoky’s Spay & Neuter Clinic entrance, where our staff will greet you and direct the intake process. One person will enter the clinic lobby at a time. All cats are required to be in an appropriate, functional and labeled cat carrier. All dogs must be on leash attached to a well-fitted collar and/or harness.

Any dog who is reactive to people or other animals should stay in your vehicle (weather permitting) until the intake process is complete.

Please keep your phone on and handy when you have an animal with us for surgery, as we may need to reach you with important information.

Pick up: 3 p.m. (arrivals after 3:45 p.m. will be charged a late fee of $15 per 15 minutes)
