Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for Cats
2018 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 2018 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 available starting Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. (Please note: 311 will not accept requests for this program prior to that time).
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 expire on June 7, 2018. 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.
Vouchers 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 March 7, and those who meet the eligibility criteria will receive their vouchers in the mail.
A waiting list will be created to reissue unredeemed vouchers at a date to be announced after the 90 day expiry period.
For general information regarding the program, please call 311. For detailed inquiries call Katherine Donaldson at 519-255-6100 ext. 6533.
