Spay or Neuter Program
The City of Fayetteville is pleased to be able to provide low cost spay/neuter services for $25 to qualifying families, and we make sure all adoptable pets are sterilized upon adoption. Fayetteville Animal Services is one of only a few municipalities in the state of Arkansas to employ a full-time veterinarian. This program helps combat animal overpopulation in our community.
Moderate Income Families
The shelter's spay/neuter program is available for animals of low-to-moderate income families who are Fayetteville residents. To participate in the program, individuals must meet the federal income guidelines provided by HUD, which may be found here.
- Last years W-2 statement
- Income tax statement
- Social Security statement
- Disability reimbursement statement
- Pay check stub
Bring your application, proof of income, and a copy of your driver's license or other photo identification to the City of Fayetteville Animal Shelter to apply. If you cannot make a copy of these items before you arrive, we can make a copy of your application documents for you when you arrive.
After the income verification process is complete, qualifying individuals will be notified and a time will be scheduled for your animal to be spayed/neutered by the shelter veterinarian. As of January 2023 we are currently scheduling appointments into April. If you need a sooner appointment date there are other low cost spay/neuter options in our area:
