Neutering Animals: Permissible or Not?
In the Hanafi school, it would be permitted to do so if there is a clear benefit in doing so.
It is mentioned in the Fatawa al-Hindiyya, one of the most definitive works in Hanafi fiqh and used as an authority by Hanafi scholars everywhere,
“If there is a clear benefit or aversion of harm in castrating a cat, there is nothing wrong with it, as mentioned in al-Kubra.” [5.357]
This is also confirmed by Imam Haskafi in Durr al-Mukhtar.
