Low Cost Spay & Neuter
Below is a list of some low cost options available for spaying or neutering your pet. Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. does not recommend any one animal hospital over another for this service recognizing that many families have an ongoing relationship with their own veterinarian and prefer to have the procedure done there. This may not be a low cost option.
State Spay & Neuter Program: See: https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/izdp/spayneut.shtml
This program is funded by the state of New Jersey and is only for New Jersey residents who adopt from a New Jersey shelter. The fee is $20.00 and only covers the basic fee for spay or neuter. The pet’s shots must be up to date. A list of veterinarians who participate in the state program can be accessed here. Pets must be up to date on vaccines to participate in program. Please note that money provided by the state for this program is given to the veterinarians on a quarterly basis. The money tends to run out before the quarter ends. Once the money for a quarter is gone, the doctors must wait until the next release of funds before they can do more spays and neuters. Please make your appointment early!
