Subsidized Spay/Neuter Program

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Our funding for this program for 2022 has been used up and therefore our spay/neuter program is on hold until we can secure additional funding and support from veterinary clinics for 2023.

Please understand that we can only provide this program when funding is available. Thank you for your understanding.

The subsidized spay/neuter program offers reduced cost spay/neuter for pets from low income households.

Why Spay or Neuter?
Spaying and neutering your pet is the responsible thing to do. Cat and dog overpopulation is a real problem in Manitoba. Millions of unwanted kittens and puppies are born each year and, simply put, there are not enough good homes for them all. The suffering is preventable! Not only will spaying/neutering help reduce roaming, aggression, and territorial behaviours, including inappropriate elimination (spraying/marking), it is also extremely important for your pet’s health. Spaying/neutering will eliminate deadly illness such as pyometra (infected uterus), and significantly reduce the likelihood of your pet developing certain types of cancer.

Who is Eligible?
-This program is open to individuals or families that meet the criteria on our application form and pass our approval process. It is based on the number of people residing in the home and the gross, combined earnings of ALL members of the household.
-The program is open to anyone residing in Manitoba, with the exception of City of Winnipeg residents (there are already subsidized programs available for these residents).
-Pet must be in good health and meet the minimum weight requirement of your veterinary clinic (check with them to confirm their requirements).

Important Notes
-Please only apply for this program if you truly need it. Funding for the program is limited, and we want to make it accessible to those most in need.
-Make sure to complete the application form accurately and honestly. Providing false information will result in automatic rejection of your application and will make you, and all members of your household, ineligible for the program now and in the future.
-Kat’s Kritters Rescue reserves the right to deny an application for any reason, without explanation.
Limit of 2 pets per approved household per calendar year.
