Friends for Life Animal Rescue’s

Low-Income Spay & Neuter Program

Friends for Life's Low Income Spay/Neuter program was created to assist low-income families with getting their dog or cat fixed (limited number per year).  If your household income is $45,000 or less, you may qualify for our program.  Complete an application, mail it in or drop it off, and if you are approved, you will receive a voucher to spay or neuter your cat or dog.  What does it cost you?  Just a minimum $15.00 donation per application (cash or money order only).  Simply take the voucher to one of our approved clinics in Mesa, Tempe, or Chandler, and let the clinic handle the rest.  Applicants are responsible for rabies vaccination fees and pain medications if needed.  Our participating clinics provide vaccinations and pain medications at a very reasonable cost.  All vouchers must be redeemed within two months.  This program is organized and managed solely by Friends for Life Animal Rescue.  This program is not available for feral cats, but please contact our shelter at 480-497-8296 about other possible programs that might be available (ie Project HART).  This program is for owned animals only - not available for stray dogs or cats.

To apply for this program, either download the application, then mail or bring the completed application to
Friends for Life Animal Rescue during office hours.  Please note that certificates will not be issued when you drop off your application.  Applications will be evaluated for compliance with our program and certificates will be mailed.  If you are not approved, your application, along with your donation, will be returned.
