spay and neuter program
The League offers a public spay/neuter program that provides paid vouchers to the community to help offset the cost of spaying or neutering a dog or cat. The vouchers are worth $50 toward a dog spay/neuter and $20 toward a cat spay or neuter. We suggest that voucher recipients make an appointment with one of our Low Cost Spay/Neuter partners or ask the vet of their choice whether they accept the League’s voucher. A monthly transport is also available from our shelter to the UCAN Non-profit Spay/Neuter Clinic on the second Wednesday of every month. A spay/neuter voucher is automatically given to anyone who uses the transport. Reservations can be made by calling the shelter at 513-735-2299. Please visit www.ucanclinic.org for prices and other information.

Did you know?
Spaying or neutering your pet will not make him/her lazy or fat. Just as with humans, overfeeding and lack of exercise make pets fat.
Spaying and neutering your pet decreases the risk of diseases such as ovarian cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer. Unaltered pets tend to wander from home (while looking for a date), thus increasing the chances of being hit by a car or ending up in a shelter.
Neutered cats are less likely to spray (urine-marking). Neutered dogs are less likely to roam or have aggression problems. Any changes in your pet’s disposition after surgery will most likely be positive and welcomed.
More than 33,000 adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized every year in the Tri-State area alone simply because there are not enough homes for them all.
In July 2011, one of the cats on our transport was UCAN’s 30,000th operation.
The League for Animal Welfare is currently financially assisting 56 feral cat colonies in the Tri-State area via our Spay/Neuter voucher program.
- On average, we financially assist in more than 1,400 spay & neuters annually.
- On average, we send 25 cats and dogs a month on our transport to UCAN.
- Our spay/neuter voucher program is funded entirely through private donations.
Here’s what people have to say about our Spay and Neuter Program:“We would like to thank you for being so kind-hearted and generous to our family and our dog in our desperate time of need. We are very grateful that there are places and people that offer assistance. We wish we would’ve found you a long time ago. May God bless you and your furry friends.” “A couple of weeks ago, I contacted your organization regarding a stray cat. Prior to receiving the enclosed voucher, the little fella went to a good home. Thank you for speaking with me and mailing the voucher. We truly appreciate all the work your organization is doing to foster adoptions and educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering.” “Thank you for providing a loving, safe haven to so many animals awaiting their forever home.” “Thank you so much for helping me get my animals fixed. I had one male dog and one cat fixed first. Then, I did four more animals.” “Thank you again for all the help! I don’t know what I would have done without your help. And my animals thank you, too!”
