Pit Pals Program - Cape Cod

Reduced Cost Spay/Neuter Program for Local Pit Bulls

Thanks to generous donors and the support of local veterinarians, we are able to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for low-income families who own Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes.

Dogs must be at least 4 months old to be able to participate in this program.  Determining whether your dog is a Pit Bull/Pit Bull mix will be at the sole discretion of MSPCA employees at the time of appointment. Dogs determined not to be Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mixes will be subject to the veterinarian’s regular prices.

For $50, the program includes:

  • Spay / neuter surgery
  • Rabies vaccine
  • DHLPP (distemper) vaccine

The program does not include additional tests or medications not related to the surgery. We recommend having pre-surgical bloodwork and a heartworm test completed prior to the surgery, which is available at the veterinarian's normal fee.

To qualify, owners must:

  • Complete an application
  • Provide proof of public assistance or financial need (such as:  Food Stamps, Medicaid, SSI, Social Security, Rental or Housing Assistance, Fuel Assistance, WIC, Unemployment)
  • $50 payment per dog in the form of cash, credit/debit or money order (no checks)

Once your application is approved and payment is received, the owner will be issued a certificate to use at either participating veterinarian:

  • Mid-Cape Animal Hospital, 3821 Rte 28, Marstons Mills, MA 02648
  • Mashpee Veterinary Hospital, 430 Great Neck Road North, Mashpee, MA

The veterinarian will be faxed a copy of your approved application and certificate.  The owner is responsible for contacting the veterinarian to schedule an appointment.  The owner MUST bring the certificate to the appointment or will be subject to the veterinarian’s regular prices.
