LA Animal Services Makes it Easy to Get Your Pet’s Spay/Neuter Voucher Today with Our Easy, Print-at-Home Option
Los Angeles, February 23, 2021Today is World Spay Day, and LA Animal Services makes it easy and convenient for pet owners to ensure their furry family members get spayed or neutered. By simply going online at, Angelenos can complete the application, and their free or spay/neuter vouchers will be emailed directly to their inbox. 

“There are many health benefits in spaying and neutering your pet,” said Brenda Barnette, LA Animal Services General Manager. “Spaying and neutering your animal companion prevents unwanted litters, discourages roaming, so your pets are less likely to escape your home or yard, and most importantly, it lowers certain cancers, including testicular cancer in male dogs, and pyometra in female dogs, which can be fatal.”

Spay/neuter vouchers cover the full cost of a companion animal’s sterilization at participating veterinary hospitals, spay/neuter clinics and mobile spay/neuter clinics.

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 open-by-appointment-only 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.
