If you DO qualify:

Once your application is approved, you will receive a spay/neuter packet which will include a voucher, list of qualifying veterinarian provides, and other pertinent information. This packet should arrive within two weeks of your submitted application.

The spay/neuter voucher has an expiration date of 90 days, so, please ensure you schedule the surgery ASAP, especially since some locations have a wait list.

The maximum out of pocket cost (your cost), will be $20 per cat/dog. This amount must be paid in cash to the veterinarian on the day of surgery. If you are unable to pay the $20 copay, special arrangements can be made, but you must indicate this need on the application.

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


If you DON’T Qualify:

If you do not qualify for THE $20 FIX program but still need assistance with the cost of the spay or neuter surgery be sure to check out our free online spay/neuter search tool to find another option  in NC near you, or give us a call and we’ll be happy to walk you through the options!
