Spay/Neuter Assistance

Volunteer Services for Animals, Inc. (VSA), a non-profit charitable organization, offers two spay and neuter programs:

VSA's Fix Your Pet discount voucher program helps Collier County pet owners in financial need to sterilize their dogs or cats.  Vouchers are accepted by several participating Collier County veterinarians.  The prices charged for the spay or neuter surgery and anesthesia with a VSA voucher are $30.00 for a cat and $47.50 to $120.00 for a dog.  The charge for dogs varies based upon the size and sex of the dog.  Other charges may be required of pet owners by veterinary clinics such as for pain medication and a rabies vaccine.  VSA provides pet owners a list of veterinary clinics which accept VSA vouchers from which they may chose.  Only a $5.00 cash deposit is required at the time VSA issues the voucher to the pet owner.

VSA's neighborhood cat program pays for the sterilization and vaccinations of unowned cats and kittens that have been rescued by individual Collier County residents or which have adopted themselves to a household.  VSA has designated veterinary clinics for this program.  Caretakers do not pay any fees unless they authorize services in addition to sterilization and the vaccines.

VSA issues vouchers each Sunday in the Naples PetSmart adoption center from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.  PetSmart is at 2255 Pine Ridge Road, next to Home Depot.  Call VSA at (239) 290-6274 for additional information.  VSA may also be reached by mail at 6017 Pine Ridge Road, #330, Naples, FL 34119 and by e-mail at  VSA's web site is

Four Good Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

1.  Spay and Neuter reduces pet overpopulation

A single pair of cats and their kittens can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just 7 years.  As more pets are spayed or neutered, there will be fewer homeless pets and animals in shelters will have more time to be adopted.

2.  Spaying or neutering increases your pet's chances for a longer, healthier life.

Spaying your pet before her first cycle greatly reduces her chance of developing breast cancer and eradicates the threat of uterine and ovarian cancer.

Neutering your male dog or cat prevents testicular tumors and reduces odors in addition to preventing prostate problems.

3.  An altered dog or cat is a better pet for your family.

While not always true, it is agreed by animal experts that sterilized pets tend to be less aggressive.  However, animal behavior also relies on pet owners to responsibly train their pets and treat them well.

Sterilized pets are less likely to roam with the intent to breed, reducing the chances of them getting hit by a car or into a fight with another animal.

4.  An unexpected litter of puppies or kittens is a lot of work.

Sometimes accidents happen and pets get out.  If your pet is fixed, the chances of it mating is eliminated and therefore no surprise puppies or kittens will be created.
