In 2016 Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative (SNKI) commissioned a study from Queen's Business Consulting on the "feasibility of a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic" in Kingston, Ontario.
This study shows that a high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic is indeed feasibile as there is sufficient need; no low cost competitors in the area; successful clinics in Ontario that use a modified version of the Humane Alliance Model and multiple sources of funding and promising financial projections.

At the August 9th, 2016 meeting of City Council, the following recommendations were passed:
That Council direct staff to continue to explore partnership options with Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative to establish a community based high volume and low income spay/neuter clinic and report back to Council at a later date; and
That Councillor Osanic be appointed to be a designated member on the Kingston Responsible Pet Ownership Group; and
That Council delegate authority to the Commissioner of Community Services to redistribute the Council approved yearly funding between the Spay/Neuter voucher program adn the Trap, Neuter, Vaccination, Release/Return program, depending on demand and need.
