Adoption Fees, Spay/Neuter Service Prices to Increase at Cortland SPCA


With prices increasing throughout, the Cortland County SPCA is no stranger to higher prices when it comes to vaccines, medication, and preventatives for cats and dogs. An increase in minimum wage that came into effect earlier this month also affected the agency.

Due to the price increase, the SPCA will be raising prices on adoptions and spay/neuter services beginning on February 1st, the increase will not impact any pets that are currently in an adoption trial.

The new adoption fees (listed below) still cover the basics including spay/neuter services, microchips, bloodwork, vaccinations, flea treatment and preventative, and deworming.

All adoptions will also come with a free bag of food and free health exam.


  • Large Breed: $200
  • Small Breed: $225
  • Puppies – six months to a year: $250
  • Puppies – less than six months: $300


  • Adult Cats: $50
  • Kittens – six months to a year: $75
  • Kittens – under six months: $175
