Veterinary Clinic RegistrationFor lower-income pet cats
If you are like many vet clinics, you receive calls from caregivers wanting to fix their cats, but when you quote the charges, they explain they cannot afford it. They can afford the day-to-day costs of cat care but that is all. So, the outcome is that you lose a surgery appointment, and the caregiver continues caring for an intact cat. But as the cat matures their relationship becomes more tenuous. Sooner or later the spraying, yowling, and kittening become too much for the caregiver to handle. The cat may then be abandoned outdoors or relinquished to an over-crowded shelter and often with an unplanned litter of kittens. Not a good situation for anyone.
But, if your clinic participates in our Spay/Neuter Program, a rosier outcome is possible. You receive the call and refer the caregiver to us for a free voucher. The surgery can now be scheduled, and you have improved the odds of the cat keeping its indoor home immensely.
The key to our program’s success is that the sterilizations are not only free, but done locally. And that is often as important as being free. It's a great way to do community service and brings new clients into your clinic.
