It's all about the cats and making their lives better at Beckoning Cat Project. We are a nonprofit, full time, low cost spay/neuter clinic for cats in northcentral PA. Since opening in January 2014 we have spayed or neutered over 18,000 cats.
We offer superior care to the cats during their visit, including full physicals and treatment of any wounds, URTIs or other issues they may have. Even the smallest comforts such as putting towels and pee pads in their carriers or traps are not overlooked. We have an excellent reputation and work with local shelters, rescues and TNR groups to spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter.
The ideal candidate will possess the same drive to offer exceptional care to our feline patients as we have. While a seasoned surgeon, with spay/neuter experience, is preferred, we are willing to train the confident, eager to learn new graduate with a strong interest in surgery. In addition to the spay/neuter surgery, we also encounter pyometras, cryptorchid, pregnant spays, as well as cats needing amputations, enucleations, entropion surgery, etc.
We do offer some wellness appointments for annual vaccines, kitten vaccines and URTI and parasite treatment. We do not offer diagnostics or emergency care.

About Beckoning Cat Project
We are a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization that operates a low cost spay/neuter clinic for cats. We accept all cats and have no geographic or income limitations. Since opening our first clinic in January 2014 we have spayed/neutered over 18,000 cats. We assist owners with TNR and work with local shelters in an effort to stop euthanasia as a means of population control for cats. When we started our local SPCA was euthanizing nearly 3,000 cats per year. They are currently down to about 20 a month and are working on solutions for that as well to which they in large part attribute to our services and educational programs.
