Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for Cats
2019 Voucher Program
Spaying and neutering pets to prevent unwanted pregnancies is the very foundation of effective animal control and The 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 2019 Operating Budget.
In an effort to reduce the number of homeless cats and number of cats euthanized in the city, 260 vouchers will be issued to sterilize cats. The vouchers are valued at $75 each and will be once again issued through the City’s 311 service. Interested residents should call 311 to inquire no earlier than 11:00 a.m. on April 16, 2019, and those who meet the eligibility criteria will receive their vouchers in the mail.
Vouchers for owned cats are reserved for low-income families. A declaration of income will be required. A maximum of 2 vouchers per household will be issued where the cats are owned. For feral cat caregivers, a maximum of 2 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 will expire 90 days after issue. They may be redeemed at any participating veterinary clinic (list to be provided upon successful application). Recipients must call and book appointments for spay/neuter services in advance.
For general information, please call 311. For detailed inquiries, call Katherine Donaldson at 519-255-6100 ext. 6533.
