Free Spay and Neuter for Military & Veteran Owned Pets

September 21, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm EDT

Military and veteran pet owners* can receive FREE spay/neuter for their pet thanks to Dogs on Deployment’s partnership with VCA Hospitals!**

About this event

Dogs on Deployment’s mission is to give America’s Heroes peace of mind concerning their pets during their service commitments by providing them with the ability to find people and resources able to help them.

One way we achieve this mission is through the Rich Setzer Memorial Grant program, in which Dogs on Deployment provides financial grants to military and veteran pet owners*. This includes helping military pets get spayed and neutered!

Thanks to our partnership with VCA Hospitals**, eligible pet owners can receive a free spay or neuter surgery for their cat or dog.

In order to be considered for this program, applicants must register for this event. After registration, applicants will be directed to complete an online application form through Dogs on Deployment. Completion of the event registration and application form are required for consideration for approval. If approved, the pet owner is responsible for scheduling their appointment for spay or neuter with the participating VCA Hospital.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.

Thank you for your service!
