The Humane Society of Utah Last Litter Program is for pet cats who have a litter of kittens their guardian needs help rehoming and getting their mama cat spayed to prevent future litters. HSU will intake the kittens for adoption and vaccinate, spay, and return mama cat to you on the same day.

How much does it cost?

The intake fee for a litter of kittens is $90 to help offset the cost of care provided to the kittens (including vaccination & deworming, spay/neuter, and microchipping) until they can be adopted. There is no additional fee to vaccinate, spay and return mama cats to their homes through donations and grants from our generous supporters.

How does it work?

Available for legally owned pet cats and their kittens under 5 months of age – for stray animals, please contact your local animal services.

  • A litter consists of Mama cat and at least two babies.
  • Kittens must be 8-9 weeks old and at least 2 pounds before being separated from their mamas.
  • Mama cat must be in sufficiently good health for spay surgery. Our medical team may reject any animal for surgery if it poses a risk to their health and/or other animals due to potentially contagious diseases.
  • In addition to the health requirements listed above, our staff must safely handle your pets. We may be unable to accept any pets that pose a safety risk to people.
  • After surgery, mama cat is returned to her guardian, and the Utah Humane Society will adopt the kittens through our adoption program.
  • The Humane Society of Utah does not guarantee the acceptance of all animals into this program. We hold the right to decline animals that do not meet our intake guidelines.

Free-roaming community cats living in your neighborhood may be served by our CATNIP program to vaccinate, spay/neuter, ear tip, and return them to their communities.

After submitting your application, a counselor will reach out within 72 hours to review it with you.
