Thanks to generous donors and the support of local veterinarians, The MSPCA Cape Cod is able to offer low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for low-income families who own Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes.
The total cost of each package is $50 and includes the spay/neuter surgery, rabies and distemper vaccinations and microchip.
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.
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.
How to Qualify
To qualify, owners must:
- Complete an application
- $50 payment per dog in the form of cash, credit/debit or money order (no checks)
