This program is for personal pets only. Funds that have been generously donated for this program are specifically to help pet owners get their pets fixed. We cannot issue vouchers to other rescues. Vouchers will only be issued to the pet owner and the pet owner must take the pet to the vet.
Limit three vouchers per family.
What do I do after I purchase my voucher?
When you purchase your voucher, you will be given an instruction sheet. It's very easy to get your pet set up. You will call the participating vet of your choice to set up an appointment.
Each clinic will accept the vouchers, but their pricing is different.

OK! I am ready! How do I get a voucher?
Vouchers are available to purchase at the shelter during regular business hours. Just stop into the office to purchase your voucher, we take cash, credit, or debit. We do not take personal checks for vouchers. We will have a form for you to fill out, collect payment and issue your voucher. We will provide you with instructions and contact information you will need to set up your appointment
Anything else that I need to know?
Voucher funds only cover spay/neuter surgery costs. Vaccines, pre or post-op care, or other treatments, if necessary, will be at your expense. If your pet is a cryptorchid (has an undescended testicle) there may be an extra fee. Please ask the vet you are utilizing questions BEFORE your surgery day. SCPR has no control over veterinary fees.
