Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Fund

Since 1992 the League has maintained a restricted fund for helping low-income pet owners spay or neuter their dogs and cats. The fund was originally established by the family of Bert Hantke to honor their father. The fund seeks to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low-cost spay and neuter surgery to pets whose owners cannot afford them. Over the years, hundreds of animals have been spayed or neutered thanks to financial support from this fund.

Depending on the pet owner’s financial situation, the League will either subsidize spay or neuter surgery for their pet or fund it completely.

Each year in February, the League participates in World Spay Day events, offering pet-owners who qualify an extremely low rate to get their cat or dog spayed or neutered.  Click here: AWLA 2014 Spay Day Voucher Sales to learn more about this year’s spay day voucher sales!  We are very lucky to have the participation of several vet clinics in the NOVA area participating with us in our World Spay Day vouchers sales this year  this including Potomac Spay/Neuter Clinic, NOVA Cat Clinic, Caring Hands Animal Hospital(Alexandria Location) and Arlington Animal Hospital. Spay Day Vouchers are subsidized by both the low-cost spay/neuter fund and the participating vets. Vouchers are still available and we will sell them until we run out.
