Our Programs


The League for Animal Welfare is a dedicated advocate for spaying and neutering pets in the Greater Cincinnati community. Not only does spaying and neutering make for healthier pets who have fewer behavioral issues, but it is the only way to reduce pet overpopulation and the number of unwanted cats and dogs that contribute to this area’s notoriously high rates of euthanasia at public shelters.  Spaying and neutering pets results in fewer animals being born and fewer animals entering local shelters. 

The League’s Spay/Neuter Voucher Program began three decades ago as a way to offer financial assistance to pet owners, making these surgeries more affordable. Vouchers cover up to $30 per cat and up to $50 per dog toward the cost of surgery, with pet owners contributing the balance.

Spay/neuter vouchers are accepted at many local veterinary clinics.  After scheduling an appointment for your pet(s), call 513-735-2299 to request a voucher. Vouchers are emailed directly to pet owners and must be presented to the clinic at the time of service. Your vet will deduct the voucher amount from your spay/neuter surgery.

The League is grateful to receive individual donations and grant funding in support of our voucher program. We appreciate the generosity of those who support this much-needed community resource. Special thanks to these foundations who have awarded grant funding in the past year:
