Spay and Neuter Application

Spay & Neuter Assistance Program
The Humane Society of Jackson County ("HSJC") is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets in Jackson County by encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. The Spay & Neuter Assistance Program is designed to help low-income pet owners with the cost of spay and neuter surgeries. With the help of private donations and the support of local veterinarians, HSJC is able to offer spay and neuter services to eligible applicants at a substantially reduced cost.
Eligibility for the Spay & Neuter Assistance Program is open to residents of Jackson County, Georgia only and is based primarily on income level; therefore, each applicant will be asked to disclose personal information so that HSJC may determine whether the applicant meets the requirements for participation in the Spay & Neuter Assistance Program.
Policies and Procedures
  • All applicants must complete an application and submit it to HSJC.
  • Applicants must submit a separate application for each animal.
  • HSJC volunteers will review each application, and HSJC reserves the right to verify all information provided by the applicant.
  • If an application is not approved, the applicant will be notified of the decision.
  • If an application is approved, the applicant will receive a Spay & Neuter Certificate as well as a list of participating veterinarians.
  • Each Spay & Neuter Certificate is valid for one (1) surgery and must be redeemed no later than 45 days from the issue date.
  • Each recipient of a Spay & Neuter Certificate is responsible for scheduling the spay or neuter surgery directly with a participating veterinarian as soon as possible after receipt of the Spay & Neuter Certificate.
  • The Spay & Neuter Certificate only covers the cost of the spay and neuter surgery, post-operative pain medication and overnight supervision (if deemed necessary by the veterinarian). Any additional expenses incurred will not be paid by the HSJC and are the sole responsibility of the recipient. Additional expenses may include, but are not limited to, fees for vaccinations, flea and tick treatment and animals in heat, pregnant or with retained testacies. Recipients are encouraged to discuss any additional expenses that may be incurred with the veterinarian before proceeding with surgery.
  • Each recipient is required to bring proof of current vaccination as required by the participating veterinarian.
  • Each participating veterinarian reserves the right to postpone surgery if they determine that the animal is not healthy enough to undergo surgery.
