Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program



COVID-19 Response

The decision to close City Hall to the public has a direct effect on the way we do business, including the Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program (SSNP).

  • Approved SSNP applicants still needing to make payment at City Hall are being asked to wait until normal operations resume. Please note, the SSNP fee must be paid at City Hall prior to contacting the participating Veterinarian Vendors.
  • Animal Services is committed to supporting approved applicants during this time. SSNP expiration dates affected by the City Hall closure may be extended.
  • If services provided by participating Veterinarian vendors are affected by COVID-19, expiration dates for SSNP services may be extended.

What is the Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program?

The Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program is an initiative of the City of Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Academy of Veterinary Practitioners and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, who have joined forces to provide low income pet owners access to significantly discounted veterinary services and financial resources. 

Who can apply?

Any person who has been a permanent resident of Saskatoon for at least one year and whose total household income falls under Statistics Canada Low Income Cut-off (LICO).

For more information on the program, please see our SSNP Program Overview.
