SpayAid PEI is providing assistance for residents of PEI who, due to financial limitations, are unable to spay or neuter their pets. This program is made possible through funds raised by volunteers, and donations to SpayAid PEI by our supporters, as well as the generosity of Island veterinarians. Participating veterinarians are donating 1/3 of the cost of the surgery, SpayAid PEI is contributing approximately 1/3 of the cost, and the remaining 1/3 of the cost is paid by the pet owner.
To see if you qualify for this program, please review the chart below. In the left column, look up the number of adults in your household. In the top row, look up the number of children living in your household. Find the corresponding total family net income. If your family income falls below this number, you are eligible for our program.
Your application will be evaluated as soon as it has been received. Once it is determined that you qualify for the program,
a voucher will be mailed to you. This voucher can be used at any participating veterinary clinic, but it expires three months after the date of issue.
Due to high demand, you may be placed on a waiting list. If this happens, you will be notified. Please be sure to include your e-mail address on your application form.
After you receive your voucher, you must contact the participating veterinary clinic of your choice and book an appointment for your pet's surgery. Please remember that the voucher expires three months from the date of issue. You will be required to pay for your share of the surgery upon receipt of services by the veterinary clinic. The clinic will bill SpayAid PEI for the remainder of the cost of surgery.
SpayAid PEI provided its first assisted surgeries in July 2007. Since then we have helped over 2,500 applicants spay/neuter their companion animals. We rely on donations and volunteers, and welcome our clients to help maintain our program so that we can continue to help many others who need assistance. If you would like to volunteer to help raise funds, or promote our service and the importance of spaying and neutering, please fill out our volunteer form here.
