Spay and Neuter for Feral Cats

The SAAC Feral Cat Assistance Program helps colony caregivers obtain affordable spay/neuter surgeries for feral cats. Eligible applicants receive coupons for spay/neuter surgeries, which can be redeemed at participating veterinary clinics for a small co-payment.

Eligibility varies depending on our funding. Please read this page carefully to determine if you are eligible for the SAAC Feral Cat Assistance Program.

In light of COVID-19 and the need to keep everyone in our community safe, we are not currently issuing feral cat vouchers. We will update this form when the State of California lifts the stay-at-home order and our partner clinics are able to resume normal operations.

Current Eligibility Requirements

The SAAC Feral Coupon program is NOT issuing coupons for the following jurisdictions:

 If You Don’t Qualify

Please see our list of other low-cost spay/neuter resources.

The Sacramento SPCA offers Sunday clinics for feral cats.

How the Program Works

  • Complete our online application, which includes selecting a vet clinic to use.

  • Feral coupons are to be used only for unowned, feral (i.e. not tame) cats.

  • You may receive up to two coupons at a time.

  • If your application is approved, you will receive an email with coupon numbers and the SAAC Feral Cat Assistance Program Guidelines.

  • Do not trap until you have received approval from SAAC, read the guidelines thoroughly, and contacted your selected clinic to make sure they can accommodate your cat(s).

  • All cats will get an ear tip to identify them as a feral. This is a requirement and is non-negotiable.

  • There is no copayment for cats from the City of Sacramento, unincorporated Sacramento County and Citrus Heights. There is a $10 copayment per coupon for cats from other jurisdictions. 

  • Coupons expire in 30 days.

  • Once your coupons are used or have expired, you can request additional coupons.

  • If you have questions after receiving your coupons and the Feral Cat Assistance Program Guidelines, please send an e-mail to ferals@sacanimal.org.
