Application for TLC Indoor Pet Cat Spay/Neuter Vouchers


These vouchers cover the full cost to spay or neuter your cat
and one vaccination each for rabies and distemper if done when the cat is fixed.

Eligibility

Use this application only if you meet all of the following program requirements:
  • Your cats live inside your home as family pets, have indoor litter boxes and are fed indoors -- otherwise, see our Outdoor Cat Application.

  • You live in our service area -- see Service Area Map.

  • You are over 18 years old -- otherwise, your head of household (parent or guardian) must apply.

  • Your family income (for all adults living in your home combined) is under $40,000 per year.

  • Your cats are over 8 weeks old and you are committing to care for them as your indoor companion pets for the remainder of their lives.

  • You are committing to get all of your cats fixed within 30 days of receiving our vouchers.

Procedure

If you meet these requirements, then:
  • The Application is here.  Fill it out and return it to us -- see the Instructions below.

  • If you have more cats than fit on one application, add them on a separate page -- all of your unfixed pet cats must be listed.

  • If you have used our program before, you must complete a new application for any new cats -- and include the information requested on the cats we fixed for you earlier.  If any of those cats are no longer with you, an explanation is required.

  • If you have a relationship with a particular veterinary clinic, you may request that clinic to spay/neuter your cats and if it's one of the 30-some clinics that we work with, we'll issue the vouchers to that clinic.  If not, or if you don't have a preference, we'll select the vet clinic for you -- typically within 5-15 miles of your home.

  • We normally process your application within 1-3 business days, and

  • If your application is approved, we'll mail you the vouchers -- which must be used within 30 days of receipt.  Please call the authorized clinic immediately upon receiving the vouchers to schedule your appointment.  If your application is not approved, we'll try to phone or e-mail you (but don't always succeed).  If you don't receive your vouchers within a week or so from when you apply, contact us by phone or email.

Instructions

  • The Application is in pdf-format, which can be viewed with most modern browsers or with Adobe Reader.  If you can't display the form, you can download the free Adobe Reader from here.
