The Big Fix

Sterilization is the single most effective strategy to reducing pet overpopulation and ending euthanasia. Today- pet owners on Oahu have a number of choices.

The Big Fix is a fully equipped surgical unit that provides affordable spay and neuter services in some of our most rural and underserved areas on the island. This high volume, high quality clinic utilizes only licensed veterinarians hosts clinics from Waianae to Waimanalo. 

The Big Fix clinics are open to everyone. Appointment is required. We do not require pets to be current on vaccinations, but the animal must be healthy. Kittens need to be 2 pounds (usually 8 weeks old); puppies at least 12 weeks. We will still sterilize females if they are in heat. But we defer to the veterinary staff to make the final decision about the surgery.


Please read the Feline or Canine Packet before making your appointment so that you understand the process and pre-surgical requirements including feeding restrictions. If you do not read the instructions, you may be turned away at the clinic. 

Clinics fill up quickly so if you cannot get into a clinic - it may be full (often weight restrictions) - then please email bigfix@poidogsandpopoki.org to be placed on a weight list. Include your contact information, pet information, and choice of clinic sites and dates.


Please read the Frequently Asked Questions for more information about The Big Fix. 


If you have additional questions, please email bigfix@poidogsandpopoki.org.


If you don't have email, please call 551-7915. Please be patient. We are primarily a volunteer organization which helps to keep costs down.

Male Dogs - $125

Female Cats - $50

Male Cats - $40

Feral or Community Cats - $25


We accept cash, check or credit card payable at the clinic site. 


The Big Fix does accept the City's Neuter Now certificates but you do NOT need one to take advantage of our low cost options. And our fees are the same as Neuter Now. However if you are an EBT cardholder, it costs only $20 with the Neuter Now certificate. You will need to purchase the certificate at a satellite city hall and bring it to your appointment. 

Subsidized services are available on a limited basis with proof of government assistance and photo identification. Proof may include a pay stub, agency letter or agency card. Pet owner must be present at check-in and photo ID must match proof of subsidy to receive assistance. Subsidies are offered only for mixed breed pets. Please talk to staff at check-in.


Special rates and payment options are also offered to owners with multiple pets and people rescuing and caring for stray, homeless and abandoned animals. Please email alicia@poidogsandpopoki.org for consideration.


Microchip, e-collars (cone for the head) and pain medication are included in the fee. There are no other costs. Microchip identification is mandatory.
