  • 1.  Mobile Spay/Neuter Unit

    Posted 08-22-2022 04:00 PM

    Hello!

    We are a rescue located in Southern CA & Oregon and we are hoping to purchase a mobile spay/neuter mobile unit in the very near future.  The lead time that we have been quoted thus far is about 16-18 months, and we can't wait that long. Does anyone know of a vendor with shorter lead times for new units, or know of someone who can retrofit an RV/motorhome/bus in a shorter period of time? Any other advice? Thanks so much!

    Good morning,
    We put a deposit on a new one in January with a 12 month ETA.   However, due to supply chain demand, etc., there's no definitive ETA and we suspect mid-year 2023?   The two big companies that specialize in mobile units are LaBoit and Magnum (you can Google their sites).   Occasionally they have used units for sale, so it's worth reaching out to them.

    Thanks so much Sue! Yes, we have been talking to them. Unfortunately they have quoted a lead time of over 16 months and have a waiting list for any used units. We aren't giving up! Thanks again!

    You might try Fido Fixers...  They "lease" units to groups for something like $1.00 per year, with the stipulation that you provide a minimum of 2,000  (?) spay-neuter surgeries each year.  Sometimes groups can' keep the commitment, so the mobile unit will be relocated to another group.

    Good luck!

    Hey Kaja, not sure if this is allowed but since you asked -- I have a used spay/neuter unit for sale located in Chattanooga, TN. 2005 GMC Topkick C5 diesel, 10k Kubota generator, dual surgery tables, anesthesia machine, surgery lights, 29 kennels, bathroom, ceiling A/C, fridge, sink. 

    We bought it in 2019 and used it for in-house surgeries when we were at an old facility without a clinic, we have since moved into a new facility and don't have a use for it anymore. Not sure how transport would work, it does need some new tires, we haven't used it in the last year but have ran it occasionally to keep it moving.

    Email me if interested rebeccabryan@heschatt.org.
