Extended Deadline - Cat Spay/Neuter Vouchers
The City of Windsor’s 2020 Spay/Neuter Voucher Program saw the program’s 260 vouchers for feral and owned cats claimed in record time. These vouchers were set to expire on June 9, 2020. Due to a reduction in veterinary services offered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these vouchers were not able to be used. With restrictions lifting, administration has approved an extended deadline and all vouchers must now be used by July 31, 2020.
The initial phase of recipients is still able to redeem the vouchers—valued at $75 each—at any participating veterinary clinic before the expiry date. Shortly after the deadline has passed, the number of vouchers remaining will be determined, and those residents who were placed on the waiting list during their initial call to 311 will be contacted to determine interest.
The $20,000 program, approved by City Council in the 2020 Operating Budget is an effort to reduce the number of homeless or euthanized cats in the city.
