Spay and Neuter Program City of Red Deer

The City of Red Deer’s Spay and Neuter Program is in place to help low income families living in the City of Red Deer to get their dogs spayed or neutered for free.

In order to enter the program, you must be a resident of the City of Red Deer, have a current up to date dog license and provide proof of low income.  Each year we receive $2.00 from every dog license sold in the previous year to fund the program.  If you are accepted into the program, we will spay or neuter your dog plus provide first set of vaccines and a microchip.  The Program runs until funds are no longer available.   ** 2023 application forms are not yet available.  The program for 2023 will begin in March 2023

Do your part to prevent the overpopulation of domestic pets in Central Alberta.
Spay or neuter your pet!

Your female dog will not have a heat cycle (menstrual cycle) which can last as much as 21 days. Unneutered neighbourhood male dogs will not be howling for her. And you won’t have an “accidental litter” of puppies that will depend upon you for their care and to find them loving permanent homes.
