Faithful Friends Animal Society Offering FREE Spay/Neuter For Some Low Income Households

Faithful Friends Animal Society offers FREE Spay/Neuter to the 19804 Zip Code Community thanks to a grant from Animal Welfare License Plate Fund. Having your cat or dog spayed or neutered is a great way to ensure your pet’s health and wellbeing over time.

Faithful Friends has a goal to Spay/Neuter and vaccinate 175 animals by the end of April! We can provide spay/neuter services and a rabies shot (if it is a feral cat, it will get its ear-tipped) for cats and dogs in the 19804 zip code. Suppose a client is interested in any more services from the clinic, like flea treatment, microchip, distemper shot, deworming, etc. our Clinic team will be able to discuss these additional services and share the cost of those services.

Eligibility for Spay/Neuter Program:

Pet caretakers must be residents of either the 19804 zip code, Sparrow Run, or Edgemoore Garden and Terrace.
Pet eligibility includes: Pet cats or cats cared for in a colony and large breed dogs.
To partake in the program, we require an application to be filled out, which can be found here.

If you are a colony caretaker, cat owner, or a large dog breed owner in need of a Spay/Neuter:

Email with your application attached to be considered for the program.

The funding for the program is from the New Animal Welfare License Plate Available to Delaware Drivers. Click here to learn more about the Companion Animal License Plate Program. The plate sells for a one-time fee of $50, and $35 of each sale is allocated to the Animal Welfare License Plate Fund. Revenue is used to provide spay and neuter surgeries for community cats, low-income pet owners and supplement spay and neuter funds for Delaware shelters and rescues.

All Delaware shelters now provide low-cost spay/neuter for cats. Many animal shelters also provide low-cost spay/neuter for community cats through Trap-Neuter-Release (“TNR”) programs as well as free pet food banks to help pet owners and colony caretakers.
