Spay and Neuter Program City of Red Deer

The importance of spaying or neutering pets is one that has remained on the City of Red Deer’s priority list since 2005, when they initiated their Spay and Neuter Program.

The City of Red Deer’s Spay and Neuter Program is designed to help to low-income families living in Red Deer spay and neuter their dogs. Keeping animals out of shelters is the focus for both The City of Red Deer and Alberta Animal Services.

In order to enter the program, you must be a resident of Red Deer and Must have a current up to date dog license.

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 free vaccines and microchipping. The program runs all year round until funds run out.

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.
