Low Cost Spay & Neuter Program

One of the most significant ways we can help decrease the number of homeless pets entering our shelter is through our spay & neuter program.

How this program works….

You can apply for a spay/neuter coupon on this page, or pick up an application in person at the Jefferson City Animal Shelter – 2308 Hyde Park Road, Jefferson City. Approved applicants will have a coupon mailed to them.

The coupons are good for $100.00 off of a spay or neuter surgery (for cats, dogs, and rabbits!) at any of the participating veterinary clinics listed below. The clinics are in Jefferson City, MO or the immediately surrounding area. Only one coupon may be used per animal.

An application must be completed for each coupon you are requesting. Only 3 coupons will be allowed per person, per year. The coupons are for individuals, not rescue organizations or shelters.

25 coupons will be issued each month, on a first-come first-serve basis. If we run out of coupons we will notify you via e-mail to reapply the following month.

You will have 90 days from the issue date to have your pet’s surgery performed. Please do not apply if your pet will not be eligible for surgery within that 90 days. Most vets will not perform a spay/neuter surgery until the animal is 6 months old. Please verify this with the vet you intend to use if your pet is very young.

If the coupon is used at a clinic where the spay or neuter surgery costs less than $100.00, the balance of the coupon can be used towards additional services and products during the same visit:

Including: Vaccinations, microchipping, de-wormer, flea/tick or heart worm preventative, Elizabethan-collars, or another medical procedure

Excluding: Declawing, dew claw removal, ear cropping, or tail docking

25 coupons are available beginning the 1st of each month. If we are out of coupons the application link will not work. Please check back the following month.                                                                    **If you have previously tried to apply and we were out of coupons you may have to clear your cache or browsing history in order to join the updated webpage**
