Program Information

Spaying and neutering pets to prevent unwanted pregnancies is the very foundation of effective animal control.  In an effort to curb the number of homeless cats in the City of Windsor, City Council has again allocated funding in the 2015 budget to provide 650 spay/neuter vouchers to qualifying individuals.  Windsor residents, 18 and over, who fall below certain income criteria or provide care to feral cats are eligible to apply.

How many vouchers were issued?

  • 325 vouchers were issued to alter owned cats and 325 vouchers were issued to alter feral cats.

What is the value of the voucher?

  • Vouchers have a value of $75.00 (including HST).

What if the surgery costs more than the voucher?

  • Any charges over and above the $75 value of the voucher are the client’s responsibility. 

How were the vouchers allocated?

  • Vouchers were allocated on a first come, first served basis subject to availability and eligibility (see chart below).
