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 is expected to contribute a minimum amount toward getting their pet(s) spayed or neutered. All the funding for LAA’s spay/neuter program is provided by donations, fundraisers and grants so contribution above the minimum are appreciated.
