I can only assume that the people complaining that the clinic smells like urine and mothballs have never been there. Same with Geoff saying that the cats were in cages peeing on themselves. There are no cages. It calls his whole review into question.

These women have made an enormous contribution to animal and public health in Vermont by preventing the birth of millions of kittens for which there are not nearly enough homes as it is. I am pleased that my cat will not be adding to the cat overpopulation problem.

The clinic is not dirty, and it does not smell. Although the office is not fancy, their intake and organization is very efficient. The women who work there have the best interests of the cats at heart. Their recommendations for food are right-on. Cats fed high quality canned cat food are healthier than cats fed dry food or inferior brands of canned food. Many people do not take their cats for vet care on a regular basis so this is one time when they can be counseled on what food is best for their cat's health.

I would have given them a 5-star rating if they offered take-home pain medication for the cats as an additional option. That was the only aspect that bothered me.

If you are looking into bringing your cat here for spaying or neutering, you are most likely looking for a way to save money on the procedure. This establishment is NOT fancy, it doesn't smell good, and it probably won't impress you upon first look. But the women who work here are kind and helpful and truly care about the treatment of your kitty. I brought my kitten here and she was well taken care of. If you are looking for a money saver that doesn't cut on quality where it counts, I would recommend them. If you're looking for a place that is pretty and smells like flowers, you will need to spend more money.

The people who work here are there for the right reasons---they are helping spay & neuter cats b/c there are just too many of them that end up homeless or in shelters. These ladies obviously love cats & I absolutely trust them with my cats. The dr is a very smart, established vet whose heart is in the right place. If you want a fancy place, go ahead and pay $300 for a spay, if you want professional, caring, thorough care for a fraction of the cost, then go here. It says something to me that these people care more about offering reduced cost spay/neuters to help people than over charging and having a fancier establishment.

I've been taking my pets here to be fixed for many years. And although it is a small establishment, these people work as volunteers or for a fraction of pay from what they should be getting. And they do a great job with what they have to work with. Suck it up Geoff....they were thinking of your pet when they advise you about the cat food. Doesn't mean you have to take their advice. And just for the record, I've had other vet clinics tell me the same thing about the ingredients in cat food and how it can affect the cat. They have other pets to think about too and just because you told them your pet had been flea treated already doesn't mean you actually did. They have to take precautions. A flea treatment wasn't going to break the bank I'm sure. Shame on you for giving them such a hard time about it. Why don't you consider how overworked, underpaid and overstressed these people already are before people like you come into their office and wreak havoc. If you find their office is that unorganized and dirty, maybe you should have asked about volunteering yourself and help them out! What a jerk.

Wake up to all you sheltered souls, cat overpopulation is dirty and smelly. The CSNC is doing incredible work by offering cheap S/N to all kinds of people and all kinds of cats, from the farmer trying to deal with their mass of feral barn cats to the senior on a pittance of social security. They will ALWAYS do what is best for the cat and you'd be surprised at the kind of crap they take from customers. I've seen it first hand.

If you want to be pampered and can pay for it, call Fitzgeralds for somebody else. There are plenty of other cats to take your place in their appointment book.

PS: Geoff F: Plenty of people survive on McDonald's too, but that doesn't mean it's a healthy way to eat. I'm glad your cat lived until 24, but most develop diabetes and other health problems from that cheap, by-product and grain filled cat food.

so i go in this place, or should i say, run down apartment building, and i wasn't sure if i was at the right place until i got down stairs and the smell of urine and mothballs hits me like a brick...then i see that their office is nothing but 2 rooms, full of other cats in cages, pissing all over themselves and i seems like some sort of black market operation...do i really want to leave my cat here? i thought...well i did. and what a mistake that was! i told them i just wanted her fixed and that was it, i even signed a form saying that i didn't want any shots or flea meds, as i had this taken care of already. However when i got back to pick up my cat, the old woman at the desk tells me that they went ahead and just gave her the shots and flea med, "because anything i'm using, wont work"...they also told me the food i feed her will kill her in a few years...funny since my last cat lived to be 24 and i fed her the same exact food, but whatever...not only did they give her shots she already had, and gave her flea meds that i didn't want yet, THEY CHARGED ME FOR IT!!! obviously i refused to pay, and after some arguing with the two women who are apparently vets, i got them for free...these women who work here are horrible people, sure they're doing a good service by offering affordable care for my cat, but would gladly pay twice as much to go somewhere more professional, that wont insult me and wont over charge me and break a signed contract. these women show absolutely NO level of professionalism, and will show NO respect. DO NOT go here if you can afford not to. If you can't, by all means, go, but don't let them push you around or over charge you or make you feel bad for feeding them Purena...i personally will NEVER go back, i don't want to help support these old cooks in any way, shape, or form. They need to close their doors because obviously the job has made them bitter and mean and they WILL take it out on YOU...i swear, i've never wanted to punch an old lady in the face before, but like that other guy said before, i sure wanted to when i was done with them...so like i said, AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS UNLESS YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE.

I agree with the last two reviews that the place looks very dirty. I'm sure they are sanitary when they operate, but I does literally feel like you are IN a litter box. I also know what jb was saying about the employees, I told them what kind of cat food i was buying and the woman made me feel like crap for feeding to my cat and that my cat would be fat and dehydrated all the time and die in a few years...it upset me, but I didn't say anything.

So yes, go because it's affordable, but don't expect much respect or any level of professionalism.

I wouldn't go here if i could afford not to. The price is great they seem very nice and I appreciate what these people do for people like me, but the place itself looks like some back alley abortion clinic. The place smells terrible and it's very stuffy and unorganized. The other thing is the employees, they are nice, but can be very judgemental and make you feel like a bad cat owner. I told them I had a pregnant cat and they said they could abort the litter and fix her for free, which was a great idea in my mind, but the cat wasn't all mine, it's a family pet, it wasn't my decision alone, so before I even said yes or no i said i wasn't sure yet and the short hair woman goes "oh well it doesn't look like you're gonna do it, that's too bad" and walks away...another woman says "another abused kitty?" and the short haired one says "well, neglected anyway..." I wanted to punch her in the face but i didn't. I walked out and will never go back if i can afford it. If i do go back, I will make sure they know I'm only there because it's cheap, not because I like them.

Also the hours are terrible, they don't list any, but they're basically Friday and Saturday 8-3.

Make sure you have them tell you what they're going to charge you, they will treat fleas without asking you and charging you 5$ because "it's the only stuff that works" and granted, it's cheap, but they should still ask you. If they do this to you, just complain for a little bit and they wont charge you.

so yes, go here because it's cheap, but don't let them stomp all over you and make you feel like a bad cat owner because you're not sure if you want to abort a littler of kittens that don't belong to you alone...

THIS CLINIC IS GREAT TO BRING YOUR CATS. I BROUGHT MY STRAY KITTEN HERE AND GOT HER SPAYED FOR ONLY $35! THEY ALSO GAVE HER SHOTS AND MEDS FOR CHEAP, TOO.

PROS: THE PEOPLE WHO WORK HERE ARE DEDICATED TO HELPING ANIMALS
CONS: THIS ISN'T THE CLASSIEST VET'S OFFICE.
