Long Beach Animal Care Services will be distributing spay and neuter vouchers in person at the PD Pitchford Companion Animal Village.
Animal Care Services usually offers a limited number of vouchers on the first Thursday of the month; however, thanks to the generous support of our community the program has been increased this month and vouchers are being offered each day Animal Care Services is open in August.
Vouchers are only valid at participating veterinary hospitals and clinics, and will only be distributed to Long Beach residents and the Long Beach Animal Care Services contract cities of Los Alamitos, Cerritos, Seal Beach and Signal Hill. Only one voucher will be distributed per household. Additional vouchers may be distributed upon request subject to availability and supervisor approval.
All five cities within the Animal Care Services jurisdiction require dogs to be licensed. In Long Beach cats are required to be licensed with current rabies shots and spayed/neutered.
In order to qualify for a voucher, pet owners must provide proof of address through photo ID or utility bill. Owners must pay the remaining balance of the spay or neuter procedure directly to the veterinary hospital.
Animal Care Services will reimburse the veterinary hospital for up to $30 of the procedure. Availability and pricing will vary; please call ahead for pricing and appointment information. A full listing of participating veterinarians can be found at www.longbeach.gov/acs under Spay & Neuter Programs.
The village is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Saturday.
