For Massachusetts Residents

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. MAF distributes vouchers weekly based on revenue and surgery capacity. Current wait time to receive a voucher is approximately 1 week for dogs and cats held in municipal shelters; 12 weeks for owned dogs and cats.
