Spay & Neuter Cost Assistance
Spaying or neutering your pet is the first step of making sure they live long, happy, and healthy lives. It is also the biggest tool we have to help fight the problem of overpopulation and the suffering of animals that results from that. Working with our veterinary partners, CFA offers vouchers to help reduce the cost of spay and neuter procedures for owners who may face financial hurdles in paying for the operation.
To receive a voucher, owners must call and confirm they qualify. To qualify for a CFA Medical Voucher, an owner must:
Reside in Thurston, Mason, or Lewis County and
Receive State/Federal Benefits or
be a Senior, Full-Time Student, or Military E4 or Below
Be scheduled for care from one of our veterinary partners

How much does a spay or neuter procedure cost?
Spay and neuter procedure costs will vary from vet clinic to vet clinic, and may go up or down depending on your pet's health needs, allergies, pain management options, etc. We recommend you call multiple clinics to get estimates as the price can be anywhere from $75 - $300+.
How old does my pet have to be to get spayed or neutered?
Most veterinary clinics have an age or weight guideline that will dictate when they are able to perform the spay or neuter procedure for your pet. Discuss with your veterinarian what the best situation would be. If you're looking for a veterinarian, check out the Our Veterinary Partners page to see who CFA works with near you.
Why should I get my pet spayed or neutered?
Responsible pet owners should strive to keep their pets from suffering unnecessarily and adding to pet overpopulation. Unplanned pet pregnancies can have terrible medical complications and spaying female dogs and cats eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer. In addition, removing your pet's babies can be an emotionally painful experience for your pet. It is best to proactively protect your pet from this pain.
