Through our Lower-Income Spay/Neuter Program you can apply for free vouchers redeemable at our participating area veterinary clinics. Vouchers cover the complete cost to spay or neuter each cat and vaccinate once for rabies if done while the cat is in for surgery.
Call to apply at 505-466-1676 during daytime business hours. If we're unavailable, leave a voice mail and we'll return your call promptly.
If you're approved, your vouchers will be mailed within 3 working days. If you don't receive them within 10 days, something likely went wrong so call us to correct.
A list of participating veterinary clinics is printed on the face of the vouchers. Select the one you wish to work with and call them as soon as possible to set up your appointment(s) — it may take a week or two to get scheduled and the vouchers must be used before their expiration date (printed on center of voucher). We do not re-issue expired vouchers.
Take the vouchers with your cats to the spay/neuter appointment. The clinic needs the voucher to verify that you're authorized to use our program and to bill us for their services.
For everyone's safety, deliver your cats to their appointment each in their own cat carrier or live trap (if feral). Cats can get very stressed in travelling and confining more than one cat in the same container is dangerous.
If you've previously participated in our program and have abided by our program requirements, you may apply for additional vouchers at a later date, provided the total number of cats fixed doesn't exceed our lifetime total of 6. At our discretion, we may honor your request for more vouchers — but don't assume that because you've received vouchers before that you'll receive more.
