Pet Assistance for Low-Income Families
CT DSS is partnering with the CT Dept. of Agriculture to offer a spay and neuter program for dogs and cats owned by low-income families. The program offers vouchers for vaccination and sterilization of dogs and cats that families who participate in DSS eligibility programs can utilize to cover the basic costs of these procedures. Approved households may receive up to 2 vouchers, which provide a benefit of $50 for a male cat, $70 for a female cat, $100 for a male dog, or $120 for a female dog. Some veterinarians may require additional services with these procedures, and the pet owner is responsible for paying any associated costs. Click here for the application.
