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

Complete the application online: Spay/Neuter Request Form

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 the necessary information about each pet needing altering. We will then issue a voucher as soon as possible. Depending on the number of requests received, volunteer availability, our funding, and veterinary availability; it generally takes between 1-3 months to receive the voucher.

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 some amount toward getting their pet(s) spayed or neutered. The amount is based on many different factors such as the breed, age and size of the animal being altered. During the interview, we will ask a number of question to help us better understand the animal and your personal circumstances. We will let you know how much you will need to pay for the procedure before issuing the voucher.
