Spay Neuter Incentive Program


We can provide you with financial assistance to spay or neuter your dog or cat. 

  • Beginning at 6 or 8 months of age, a female can produce 2 litters of 6-10 puppies every year.

  • And the females in those litters will do the same.

  • The result: One female dog can be responsible for offspring totaling TENS OF THOUSANDS of puppies throughout her life.

Why Spay or Neuter?

The importance of spaying or neutering: 

  • Reduction of the number of unwanted, homeless, stray and abandoned dogs.

  • Health benefits to both males and females

    • They live longer, healthier lives

    • Decrease in uterine infections and breast tumors in females

    • Males: Prevention of testicular cancer and some prostate problems.

  • Behavioral benefits

    • Males are less likely to roam, reducing the chances of getting hit by a car or fighting with other males.

    • Less likely to mark territory, including inside the house.

    • Aggression can be reduced by neutering.

How it works:

  • You must be a resident of Randolph County to participate.

  • You must have a family income of less than $50,000.

  • Your most recent 1040 form must be included with your application.
