Please provide as much background as possible so we can provide the best care for the cat.

Each cat will have a pre-surgical exam (post sedation for feral cats or those who can’t be handled), be given an FVRCP and Rabies, flea treatment and a microchip all included in the reservation price. Extra charges apply for spay (+$20), pregnant spay (+$35), cryptorchid neuter (+$20).
Post anesthesia the veterinarian may find that the cat requires additional treatment for medical conditions discovered during a sedated exam including Convenia (injectable antibiotic), Drontal (for tapeworms), infected ears and ear mite treatment. These conditions will be treated and additional charges will apply. Signing the form below indicates your understanding and agreement to these treatments.
If you did not select Rabies, FVRCP and microchip be given above, you will need to email proof of current vaccination and microchip to clinic@bbawc.org at least 24 hours before your appointment.

Please note that any questions or concerns regarding post surgical issues should be emailed to clinic@bbawc.org or a message left at (917) 426-3335. The clinic is not open every day but this email and phone line will be monitored. If the cat is in distress and you feel there is an emergency please take the cat to an emergency hospital and do not wait for a response.

I being of legal age (18 or older) and lawfully authorized to make decisions on behalf of the animal described above (the "Cat") hereby agree to the following:

Consent for Surgery, RIsks associated with Surgery and Anesthesia

I heareby authorize and give my consent to BBAWC to receive, prescribe for, treat and/or perform sterilization surgery and/or administer vaccinations and/or microchips as indicated above. I understand that the cat may have medical issues that are unknown to BBAWC and therefore the Cat may be at greater risk for surgery. I understand that the likelihood of such unknown or undisclosed medical issues is higher in an animal that is considered to be feral. I recognize that feral cats cannot be handled by the medical staff while awake and can only be examined after anesthesia. I understand that so long as, in the opinion of the attending veterinarian, it is determined that the animal is an acceptable surgical and/or vaccination candidate, sterilization procedures and/or vaccinations will be performed regardless of the Cat's sex or or medical condition (including pregnancy). I understand that the Cat could die during or after anesthesia or surgery, and that these risks are more likely to occur if I did not follow pre-surgery feeding instructions. I understand that modern techniques and trained staff will be used to care for all animals and reasonable precautions will be used against injury, escape or destruction of the Cat. I understand that the Cat will receive a small tattoo on his or her underside to show that he or she has been sterilized.

I understand that every effort will be made to achieve a successful outcome and to provide for the safety of both humans and animals at the clinic. I understand and agree that BBAWC shall not be liable to or held responsible by me in any manner for, or in connection with, the procedure to be performed on the Cat, and I hereby hold BBAWC harmless from and against any and all liability and damages that may arise. I understand the Cat shall be administered with a local and/or general anesthesia for surgery. If, in the course of treatment or during the procedure, a condition is discovered which requires medical attention or additional procedure(s), I consent that the attending veterinarian may, in his or her absolute and sole discretion, perform such a procedure without seeking additional authorization or consent from me. I consent to these procedures and agree to pay for them. I understand that the medical staff can refuse to perform a procedure on any animal for any reason. Such refusal is the sole discretion of the BBAWC attending veterinarian.

Post Operative Care and Complications

I will take full responsibility, financial and otherwise, if the Cat becomes ill after surgery. I understand that BBAWC Surgery clinic has limited medical staff and that if there are complications I must email clinic@bbawc.org or call (917) 426-3335 with concerns. I understand that if there is a life threatening issue before BBAWC can respond I am responsible, financially and otherwise, for taking the Cat to a twenty four hour emergency clinic.

Hold Harmless

I understand that every effort will be made to achieve a successful outcome and to provide for the safety of both humans and animals at the clinic. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you shall indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless BBAWC, its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all losses of any nature that arise out the services provided at this clinic.

I hereby warrent that (A) I am over 18 years of age, (B) have read this agreement carefully prior to its execution, (C) fully understand this agreement, (D) realize this agreement is an enforceable legal document between myself and BBAWC and (E) voluntarily sign this agreement of my own free will.
