SPOT Spay and Neuter Program
The SPOT (Stop Pet Overpopulation Together) program is a nationally recognized pet sterilization program designed to address the pet overpopulation crisis. Annually six million homeless and unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, thousands of which are euthanized here in Broward County each year.
SPOT allows Broward County residents, who meet income eligibility requirements, to sterilize (spay/neuter/fix) their cat or dog for as little as $10. Pet owners can choose from over 30 veterinary clinics to perform the surgery.
The SPOT Program is funded by a $2 surcharge on Broward County pet registration tags. Proceeds from the surcharge are used to pay participating veterinarians a reduced fee to perform the surgeries.
There are Many Benefits to Fixing Your Pet:
- Improved health for your animal
- Longer life
- Reduced veterinary bills
- Reduce the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens
- Less biting and aggressiveness
- Less roaming
- Less spraying and marking
- Less fighting among pets that live together
Eligibility for the SPOT program is based on the number of people in your household and your yearly gross income (before taxes). You must meet the most recent federal low-income guidelines (up to 80% of the median household income).
