spay/neuter assistance program


Pet overpopulation is an epidemic in the United States, and each year millions of healthy, adoptable animals are euthanized at animal shelters across the country. The easiest and most effective solution to this problem is sterilization. Unfortunately, rising veterinary costs often put the price of altering an animal out of reach for many pet owners. 

To help combat this problem as well as put sterilization within financial reach for those who might not be able to afford it, CCA is pleased to offer a low-cost spay/neuter assistance program. This program puts pet sterilization within financial reach and assists with our efforts to prevent the births of kittens and puppies for which there are not enough homes.

How does it work? 

CCA, with the support of our dedicated veterinary partners, is able to provide spay/neuter certificates for $40 for cats and $50 for dogs. To obtain a certificate, the first step is to complete the application form and send it, along with your check or money order (made out to Concerned Citizens for Animals) and a self-addressed stamped envelope, to:

Concerned Citizens for Animals
Spay/Neuter Assistance Program
P.O. Box 1332
Simpsonville, SC 29681
Upon receipt of the application, CCA will process the application and payment and issue a certificate that can be used for the spay/neuter surgery with one of our veterinary partners. If your vet does not participate in our program, we will try to schedule the surgery with the vet located closest to you. Once you receive the certificate, it is your responsibility will be to contact the veterinary clinic and make an appointment. Please note that up-to-date vaccinations are a requirement for the surgery, so please be sure to bring written proof of your pet’s shots. If your pet is not up to date on vaccinations, the vet can administer them at the time of surgery, and you will be responsible for that cost.
