DSS Clients May be Eligible to Have Pets Spayed/Neutered/Vaccinated at Low-Cost

 

The Department of Social Services is partnering with the Department of Agriculture to help low-income households afford the cost of spaying/neutering and vaccinating their pets.
 
The Department of Agriculture’s Animal Population Control Program can provide up to two spay/neuter vouchers for your pet(s) per eligible household.  The voucher provides up to $50 for a male cat, $70 for a female cat, $100 for a male dog and $120 for a female dog.  The voucher also provides for one rabies and one distemper combination vaccination available ONLY when the pet is spayed or neutered. 
 
To qualify, you must currently receive assistance from one of the following DSS programs:
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Family Assistance, State Administered General Assistance, Medicaid (including Medicaid for Low-Income Adults and HUSKY A), State Supplement for the Aged, Blind and Disabled or Care4Kids.  Please fill out the Low-Income Pet Sterilization Application and the Permission to Determine Eligibility forms and mail them to:
