Welcome

Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program

Lincoln Animal Ambassadors' mission is to reduce the number of homeless companion animals and one way to accomplish this mission is to spay or neuter our pets.

Lincoln Animal Ambassadors offer a low-cost spay/neuter program for Lancaster County residents who are unable to pay the full cost of altering their pets. To have your name added to the Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program wait list, please leave a message on our voice mail line at 402-817-1168. A LAA volunteer will respond to your call within 24 hours to add you to the waiting list.

While waiting to be called to have a voucher issued, you are advised to have all vaccinations up-to-date for your pet(s) as this must be cared for before the alter procedure can take place.

If you are a veterinarian who is interested in joining our fight against pet overpopulation by participating in our spay/neuter program, please leave a message on our voice mail line at 402-817-1168.

Currently donations, fundraisers and grants are the sources of funding for our low-cost spay/neuter program. As with all the Lincoln Animal Ambassador's programs, an all-volunteer staff coordinates this program. Please send your tax-deductible monetary donation for our low-cost spay/neuter program to: Lincoln Animal Ambassadors, PO Box 67072, Lincoln, Nebraska 68506.

How does the Lincoln Animal Ambassador’s Low Cost Spay/Neuter Program work?

After a voice mail indicating interest in the low cost spay/neuter program is left at 402-817-1168, you will be contacted by a volunteer to obtain basic information about the pet(s) needing altering and then added to the wait list. At various times of the year, the wait list can be more than four weeks long.

When your name has been assigned to a volunteer, a short phone interview will be conducted to obtain information for completing the voucher. During the interview a veterinarian clinic will be selected from a list of clinics who have an agreement with Lincoln Animal Ambassadors. A voucher will be issued to both the client and the veterinarian clinic selected during the interview.

Once the client receives the voucher, it is the client's responsibility to make the appointment and bring the pet to the veterinarian's office.

How much will it cost to have my pet altered?

Each client pays what they can contribute toward getting their pet(s) altered. When considering the amount to be contributed, we ask each client to consider the fact all the funding for this program is provided by donations, fundraisers and grants.
