The State of Illinois has a spay/neuter program available for low income residents.  The Animal Population Control Program was designed to decrease the amount of strays in our cities which in turn protects the public by a lower incidence of animal bites.

An "application with income documentation" must be submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health for approval.  Vet participation is voluntary.  Please click here for further information about this program and applications.
