The Cannoli Fund, serving the King William and Lavaca neighborhoods, has seen an increased need for the use of private veterinarians for dog spay and neuter surgeries. The wait time for a pet spay/neuter at the low cost spay/neuter clinics have become longer. This is most likely due to an increased need and a decreased number of clinics. Often it is not possible to get an appointment to fix a dog for several weeks!
Maximum reimbursement for neutering of a male dog is now $180 and for spaying a female dog is $200. This is an increase of $80 per dog. The details are on the spay/neuter reimbursement program page of this website.
Spay/Neuter is The Cannoli Fund’s central mission. It is the most humane way to control pet populations and to reduce needless suffering. We are able to increase these rates thanks to our volunteers and donors.
Our sixth annual cat and dog Fiesta medals help us raise funds while spreading the important “Spay or Neuter Pets” message.
