Spay And Neuter Discount Vouchers

If you are unable to cover the costs of spay/neuter surgery, OC Animal Allies offers a discount voucher program to low income individuals and families living in Orange County, California.

Please note that there are many low cost animal hospitals and clinics in and around Orange County that offer spay or neuter surgeries at very affordable prices.  Neuter surgeries for male cats start at around $90 and spay surgeries for female cats less than $170 barring complications.  For dogs the surgery prices are largely dependent on weight and age. For a small dog (0-20 pounds) prices start around $150 for a male, and $195 for a female, excluding complications and required additions such as pain medications, blood tests, etc. You should always call to confirm prices and any additional expenses and make sure you are getting the total complete cost of the procedure.

If you feel you still cannot cover the cost of the surgery, you can apply for one of our discount vouchers using one of the options below.  Our discount vouchers:

  • Are ONLY accepted at approved hospitals where we have contracts
  • Generally cover most of the cost of a basic spay or neuter surgery. A basic spay surgery involves removing the reproductive organs while the pet is under anesthesia.
  • Do NOT cover any additional costs associated with conditions which complicate the surgery such as the pet is in heat, has an undescended testicle or is obese.
  • Larger dogs, especially over 50 pounds will incur additional charges for anesthesia and surgery
  • Do NOT cover extra items which may be required or recommended by the veterinarian. These may include, but are not limited to, pain injections, antibiotic injections, blood tests for older pets, IV catheter, take home pain medications and/or an e-collar.

Applications for vouchers are filled on a first come, first served basis for qualified applicants. Vouchers are limited to a maximum of 2 per household, and are not issued to rescue groups or animals adopted through shelters or rescue organizations. If you have received an unaltered pet from a rescue or shelter, please go back to them for assistance – it is not only their responsibility, it is their obligation!

If you are a Veterinary Clinic in Orange County and are interested in partnering with OC Animal Allies to help grow our Spay & Neuter programs, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at (714) 964-4445 or email us at Info@OCAnimalAllies.org

Due to the overwhelming demand for affordable spay / neuter options, and a significant reduction in available veterinary services, we have already reached our limit of vouchers for the month.  

 As such, we will not be accepting applications for our discount spay/neuter vouchers again until early September, 2022. Please be patient as we work to process applications before accepting any new application requests.

We do not have a waiting list, all applicants must apply on a first come first served basis when the application becomes available.


Pease remember that we are a small and local nonprofit organization that is not funded by any government agency or national organization (we are not affiliated with the ASPCA).
