Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance
Spay/neuter financial assistance is usually provided in the form of a voucher which is good for the spay/neuter surgery for one cat, although you may often request more than one voucher at a time. Vouchers typically do not cover vaccinations or other common treatments the cat might need for fleas, worms, ear mites etc. to alleviate the misery caused by these conditions.
