Spay & Neuter
Having your pet spayed or neutered is a humane and responsible choice that will help slow the number of unwanted animals being born in Vermont every day. If you have a regular veterinarian, please contact him or her and arrange to have your animal spayed or neutered. If you cannot afford to go to a full service vet to have your pet spayed or neutered, there are organizations that can help.
People on many types of assistance programs may be eligible to have their cat or dog spayed or neutered for a very low co-pay through the Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program known as VSNIP. For more information about VSNIP or to obtain an application, please call 844-448-7647 (844-HI-VSNIP) or 802.672.5302 to leave a detailed message or click here to visit the VSNIP website where you can get an application, a list of participating vets and other information. As of April 24, 2015 there is no longer a waiting list and the processing and issuing of vouchers has resumed.
Humane Societies often have special clinics or offer assistance. Check with your local humane society to see what may be available.
