Spay/Neuter Financial Assistance

There are two components to this spay/neuter financial assistance program. First, there is the distribution component. Be The Solution, Inc. goes out into the public at various locations, including our thrift store and events, throughout the month to distribute spay or neuter vouchers. In these targeted locations, sometimes we have to discuss the need for surgery and educate people about the benefits of the surgery or they would not otherwise have it done. The second component of this program is paying for the cost of the surgery. People take their voucher to a local participating vet clinic to have the surgery performed for free if in our target zone, a $5 co-pay if they have one of our proof of low income requirements, or $30 co-pay for cats and $40 co-pay for dogs if they have no proof of low income. The client pays the co-pay to the vet at the time of service and BTS is invoiced for the remaining balance of the agreed upon discounted cost of surgery by the vet.
