Note: As of July 13th, 2015 THE $20 FIX program is temporarily suspending issuing new spay and neuter vouchers to residents of Durham County due to low program funding.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  If you need information about reduced-cost spay/neuter options around Durham please contact our office at 919-870-1660 or visit our online search tool.

Over 17,000 needy cats and dogs have been helped through THE $20 FIX program since 2004!

Orange County Animal Services, 1601 Eubanks Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27516

 The Process

If you qualify you will receive a voucher (usually within two weeks after we receive your application) and a list of veterinary providers (en español) where it can be used. You must use the voucher within three months of the issue date, or contact AnimalKind again. Don’t wait to call, some locations have waiting lists!

Your maximum voucher 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.

If needed, your pet’s Rabies vaccination (required by law) will be included at the time of the spay or neuter surgery.
