It’s World Spay Day!

LA Animal Services Makes it Easy for Angelenos to 

Get Your Pet’s Free or Low-cost Spay or Neuter Voucher Today

Los Angeles, February 28, 2023 – With February being Spay and Neuter Awareness Month, and today being World Spay Day, LA Animal Services reminds pet owners of the importance of spaying neutering the pets in their lives. There are many health benefits to spaying and neutering your pets and LA Animal Services makes it easy for pet owners to ensure their pets get spayed or neutered with free vouchers or low-cost coupons that you can download from laspayneuter.com or pick up at any of our six LA Animal Services Centers. 


To download your coupon or voucher, visit laspayneuter.com, complete the application, and your free or low-cost spay/neuter voucher(s) will be emailed directly to your inbox. Spay/neuter vouchers are available to qualified residents and cover the full cost of a companion animal’s sterilization, while spay/neuter coupons are available to any LA City resident, and reduces the cost towards a spay/neuter surgery. Both spay/neuter vouchers and coupons may be used at participating veterinary hospitals and spay/neuter clinics. To view the list of participating veterinary hospitals that accept the free vouchers, click here. Participating veterinary hospitals who accept the discount coupons may be found here


“There are so many health benefits in spaying and neutering your pet,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services. “Spaying and neutering your pet prevents unwanted litters, which helps decrease overcrowding in shelters, discourages roaming, and lowers certain cancers, including testicular cancer in male dogs, and pyometra in female dogs, which can be fatal.”


The free Spay & Neuter Certificates/Vouchers and discount Spay & Neuter Coupons are available online for Los Angeles City residents, or are available for pick up at any of our LA Animal Services Centers. Each household is eligible for discounts for up to three dogs and three cats per household. Feral cats and stray dogs do not qualify for this program.
