Black and while cat on a blanketThe City of Windsor is pleased to once again offer its Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for cats. This year’s $20,000 program was approved by City Council in the 2024 operating budget.

To reduce the number of homeless cats and number of cats euthanized in the city, 260 vouchers will be issued to sterilize cats. Veterinarians providing service for feral cats will be providing ear-tipping to assist those involved in trapping cats in determining their status. The vouchers are valued at $75 each and will be available Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at 9:00 a.m.

Please note: Vouchers will only be released by calling 311. Requests received through email, text, 311 Online or the 311 mobile app will not be accepted. No request will be accepted prior to 9:00 a.m. on March 27, 2024.

Vouchers for owned cats are reserved for low-income families, and a declaration of income will be required. A maximum of two vouchers per household will be issued where the cats are owned. For feral cat caregivers, a maximum of two vouchers per household will be issued with no income restrictions. In both cases, the applicant must be over the age of 18.

Vouchers are non-transferrable and may be redeemed at any participating veterinary clinic before Friday, May 24, 2024. The list of participating clinics will be provided upon successful application. Successful cat voucher recipients must wait to book an appointment for spay/neuter services until they receive their voucher(s) in the mail.

Please note that vouchers are redeemable for $75.00 including HST; applicants are responsible for ensuring costs with the participating veterinary clinics, as pricing may vary. Applicants are responsible for any cost over the $75.00 value as noted on the voucher.
