How many pets can I have spayed or neutered using the PALS Program?
The PALS Program is funded solely through grants and donations therefore we must limit the number of approved pets to 2 per family per lifetime.
I have more than two pets, should I list them all on the PALS application?
Yes. Please be sure to list all pets owned by you at the time of your application as this could affect your approval in the future. If you have both male and female pets in your household, priority will be given to the females.
My pet may be pregnant and I want to keep her puppies/kittens, do I still qualify for the PALS Program?
