Veterinary Services

The Central Missouri Humane Society is proud to offer low-cost animal care. However, our clinic is not a replacement for a relationship with a full-service veterinarian and we are only able to offer a limited selection of services. For the long-term health and happiness of your pet, we recommend regular visits to a full-service veterinarian whenever possible.

Spay and Neuter

Use the links below to schedule a surgery. Payment must be received at the time of scheduling. Vaccinations are only available at the time of sterilization or at one of our vaccination clinics (see bottom section). If you are a Boone County resident unable to afford the price of surgery, please call our surgery scheduler at 573-443-7387 ext. 204.

Community Cat Program

CMHS offers a Community Cat Program to provide free spay/neuter services for the feral and free roaming cats in Boone County.

Scheduling an appointment:

Community cat trap, neuter and release (TNR) services are offered Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays on a first come, first served basis. The TNR cat MUST be in a humane live trap. CMHS loans out traps for a $25 deposit. The deposit is refunded when the trap is returned.

Drop off is at 7:30 AM with pick up being the following morning.

Free, mandatory program services include:

  • Sterilization surgery
  • Ear tip of the left ear
  • Rabies vaccination
Please note: Priority is given to residents of Boone County. If you'd like to participate in the TNR program and live outside of Boone County, there is a $30 fee.

Other Services

Microchipping is available for $15. Please call the shelter to schedule an appointment (typically for the same day, if our vet staff has availability).

Medical Euthanasia

If your pet needs to be humanely euthanized for a medical reason and you cannot afford to have this done at your vet, please fill out this form.
