About Our Clinic

Our Focus: Quality Care at the Right Price

Alleycat Spay & Neuter Clinic is a high quality, low cost clinic for cats and dogs. Our clinic provides quality service at an affordable price. We use state of the art equipment for surgery and anesthesia monitoring. We are not a full service clinic, nor do we see emergencies. By streamlining our services, we can lower costs by reducing overhead.

In addition to spay and neuter surgeries, we also offer vaccine clinics with no appointment necessary. Our services are focused on providing the best preventative care for your cat or dog.

Alison Achey MS, DVM and Kristin Munholand, RVT have over 10 years combined experience in high volume, high quality spay and neuter services working closely with the community and over 15 local rescue groups. Our prime location in Columbiana County allows us to service not only northeast Ohio but western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
