Spay it Forward
Spay It Forward is a special fund created to assist our local Greene County, OH community members with spay and neuter services. The fund has been established to assist local cat/kitten guardians/caretakers with low-cost spay/neuter options to provide felines with spay/neuter surgeries.
The program is available to all Greene Co., OH feline guardians and feline caretakers, Rates Below:
Xenia, OH residents =$25 per cat* (limited number of vouchers available)
All Other Greene Co., OH residents = $50 per cat
NOTE: Maximum 5 feline spay/neuter vouchers per household, per year
A drivers license or military ID (current photo ID with correct home address) must be provided when you pick up your voucher in Xenia. Your photo ID and home address must match the name on your application in order to be valid.

Shelter Euthanasia is the #1 killer of companion animals in the U.S. It is responsible for more deaths than any other disease. In order to eliminate shelter killing and create a no-kill community, cost-effective spay and neuter surgeries must be readily available to all community members, regardless of income level.
Did you know…
Sterilization of your cat will increase his/her chance of a longer and healthier life. Altering your feline friend will increase his life an average of 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers.
Sterilizing your cat makes him/her a better pet, reducing his/her urge to roam and decreasing the risk of contracting diseases or getting hurt as they roam. Intact male cats living outside have been shown to live on average less than two years. Feline Immunodeficiency Syndrome is spread by bites and intact cats fight a great deal more than altered cats.
Who is the fund created for?
The fund has been established to assist local cat/kitten guardians/caretakers with spay/neuter at our A4A approved veterinarians office (located in Xenia).
