Spaying or neutering your pet is an important part of responsible pet ownership.
To assist low-income residents with the cost of caring for their pets, Lane County Animal Services (LCAS) is offering spay/neuter vouchers to qualified applicants.
This program is supported, in part, through license fees. Funding also comes from private donations. The more funding LCAS is able to put into the program the more it will be able to offer.
How Do I Qualify & Apply?
Applications are available at LCAS, 3050 N Delta Hwy, in Eugene.
You may also click on the 'application' link at the bottom of this page.
Pease note - you will need to submit proof of income with your application and live in an unincorporated area of Lane County. If you own a dog, you must submit proof of a current dog license. If your dog is not yet altered (spayed or neutered), you may purchase a 1yr license at the unaltered rate of $35.00. If proof of altering is submitted to this office within 90 days from your license purchase date, we will extend your license to a 3yr term at no additional cost.
We do not provide vouchers for feral cats. For info on feral cats, click here.
Applications are reviewed to determine whether or not a pet owner meets the low-income guidelines provided by the Oregon Employment Department.
LCAS staff will notify you to let you know whether you have been approved or denied. If approved, information regarding participating veterinary clinics will be sent to your home along with the spay/neuter voucher(s). Once you select a participating Vet and make your appt., you simply give your voucher to the Vet when you check in for your appointment and pay the balance for the services you are provided.

The Animal Regulation Task Force report submitted to the Lane County Board of Commissioners in November 2003. The Board approved a proposal that dedicates five percent of animal license revenue towards addressing the problem of animal overpopulation in Lane County.
LCAS created the program, which offers one $25 voucher for cats and two $25 vouchers for dogs per year, per household to assist low-income Lane County residents with the spaying or neutering of their dogs or cats.
