THE $20 FIX program offers a low-cost way to spay or neuter dogs and cats.
You can use this program if you live in the Town of Cary, Caswell, Durham, Orange, or Person County in North Carolina, and:
- your total household income falls within those listed in our application (a copy of your tax return is required)
- you participate in Medicaid or Food Stamps (a copy of your card is required)
Outside of the Town of Cary, as of 11/1/2013 new vouchers from THE $20 FIX program are not currently available for Wake County residents. We are continuing to work to find suitable funding solutions for targeted spay/neuter services outside of the Town of Cary.

If your income qualifies, you will receive a voucher
(usually within three weeks after we receive your application) and
a list of the veterinary locations where it can be used.
You must use the voucher within three months of the issue date, or apply again. Don't wait to call, some locations have waiting lists.
Your co-pay amount (cost to you) is $20 for a cat or dog. This must be paid in cash to the veterinarian when you
drop off your pet. If you cannot afford a co-pay, please explain
this in your application.
