- Overview of Organization and Services:
Do you own a cat or dog that is not spayed or neutered? Is the cost of surgery a financial hardship for you or your family? The Mass Animal Fund can provide free spay/neuter vouchers to low-income residents for their cats and dogs. If you are eligible to receive government help such as: (TAFDC, SSI, VS, SNAP, WIC, etc.) you can qualify.
Massachusetts residents who qualify can apply by contacting their local animal control officer. Contact information for municipal animal control officers is available here: ACO List. PLEASE NOTE: Currently the Fund has close to 700 animals on it's waitlist and the wait time for new voucher requests is over 7 months. New requests may not get addressed until the 2021 tax cycle. If you need assistance sooner, please visit www.spaymass.org for a list of low cost options across the state. VOUCHER REQUESTS ARE MADE THROUGH YOUR LOCAL ACO, WE CAN NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS DIRECTLY FROM RESIDENTS. To save time you can prefill in our voucher application to give to your local ACO.
Already have a voucher and need to schedule surgery? Visit our Find a Provider page to find a participating veterinarian. Already applied for a voucher through your ACO and want to find out where you are ion the waitlist, contact Cary at 617-626-1790 or at Cary.Payton@mass.gov.
