Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program Details

Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is pleased to bring low-cost spay and neuter efforts in the City of Guelph, Guelph Eramosa, and Centre Wellington Township, thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities of Canada. GHS is partnering with Ontario Veterinary College to provide under-resourced, owned pets with spay/neuter surgeries. This innovative collaboration is the first of its kind in our community, where previously there have been very limited low-cost spay neuter options.

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program Eligibility  background

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program Eligibility

Who is eligible?

  1. Barn cats (who live in a barn and have a caretaker or owner) living in the City of Guelph, Centre Wellington or Guelph-Eramosa townships.
  2. Cats and dogs of Community Veterinary Outreach clients.

The grant will fund 10 clinics, beginning Fall 2019, and will provide approximately 150 spay/neuter surgeries for owned pets.


Why is the eligibility of the program limited?

The low-cost spay/neuter clinic is specifically targeted in order to have the most impact in our community. Specifically:

  1. Barn cats: GHS consistently see barns filled with dozens of cats, whose owners recognize the overpopulation problem but  cannot afford multiple spay/neuter surgeries.
  2. Community Veterinary Outreach clients: There is a constant wait-list of Community Veterinary Outreach clients with cats and dogs who would benefit greatly from subsidized spay/neuter surgery. Community Veterinary Outreach helps to provide veterinary care for pets whose owners are homeless or are vulnerably housed. To learn more, or to inquire about becoming a Community Veterinary Outreach client, visit the Community Veterinary Outreach website!


If I’m not eligible for this specific program, are there other resources I can access for low-cost spay neuter services?
