Did you know that there is financial assistance for low income families to get their pets spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted litters?
If you are receiving government assistance, such as Food Stamps or Medicaid OR if your household income is below 100% of the Federal Povery Level Guidelines for the number of people in your household, then you are eligible for the North Carolina Spay/neuter program. It only costs $20 to have your pet(s)“fixed”.
Please help your local animal shelter euthanize fewer animals by helping to prevent unwanted litters from being born.
SPAY. NEUTER. ADOPT
- Step 1: Come to the shelter with your Food Stamp or Medicaid Card, current pay stub, your most recent income tax return, SSDI or DI recent award letter or bank statement showing SSDI or DI deposit, along with a form of ID. (You must be a resident of Scotland County)
- Step 2: Fill out the application to get your pet(s) spayed/neutered
- Step 3: pay $20 nonrefundable co-pay per pet
- Step 4: Obtain voucher to be presented at vet clinic for surgery, and make the appointment for the surgery at your earliest opportunity.
You will be responsible for any other vetting and vaccinations that you may request to have done at the vet clinic. The voucher will only cover the costs associated with the surgery for the spay/neuter.
NOTE: If your pet is not current on their rabies vaccination you will have to pay the vet to have that vaccine administered. NC law states that any cat or dog that is 4 months of age or older must have a current rabies vaccination.
