To obtain information regarding the cost of spay and neuter services, applicants are asked to contact the veterinarians directly. 

Spay and neuter vouchers have a maximum value of $50. Any costs in excess of $50 for spay and neuter surgeries are the responsibility of the owner or the caregiver.

Definitions: 

“Feral Cat” means the offspring of lost or abandoned pet cats or other feral cats that are not spayed or neutered. Feral cats are not accustomed to contact with people and are typically too fearful and wild to be handled. They do not easily adapt or may never adapt to living as pets in close contact with people. 

“Owned Cat” means cats that are owned by a household and receive food, shelter and care from the members of a household.
