2022 Free Cat Spay/ Neuter VouchersFor Lower-Income Pet Cats in New Mexico

If you need financial help to fix your indoor companion cat, call us at 505-466-1676 to complete a phone application.

If it is approved, we will mail you a voucher you can use at participating veterinary clinics for a free spay or neuter including the extra charges for pregnant, in-heat, or inguinal cryptorchid surgeries. In addition to covering the surgery, the vouchers also pay the full cost of a brief day-of-surgery exam, post-op pain medication, and rabies vaccination.

Many, but not all, clinics may also include a free FVRCP vaccination, microchip, and treatment for any visible parasites on the day of surgery.
