WAGS AND WHISKERS

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Note:  Our current offering is a voucher that gives a major discount toward

           spay/neuter and rabies vaccination at one of our approved veterinary practices. 

 You will be responsible for the balance of the charges.   

How It Works

  • Call 931-788-2201 and ask for spay / neuter assistance

  • We will determine if you qualify and if so, complete an application form, including family income information and information about each pet.  

  • We will then mail you the list of participating veterinarians, their fees and our instructions.

  • You will select a vet from that list and make an appointment.  Your net cost will depend on your choice of the vet or clinic, the species and sex of the pet and in some cases, the weight of the dog (larger dogs cost more).  Currently we cover the first $75 for cats and $100 for dogs.

  • When you talk to the vet's office, be sure to tell them that you will have a Wags and Whiskers' voucher ($75 for cats and $100 for dogs) and ask them to tell you what your cost will be above that (if any).  This is so that you will know how much money you may need (if any) when you take your animal in and you can set that money aside.

  • When you have the appointment, call us (931-788-2201) and leave a message with your name, the name of the vet that you are using and the date of the appointment(s).

  • When we have the appointment information, we will enter all of your information into our computer system, and print and mail the voucher(s) to you.

  • If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please be sure to cancel it with the vet/clinic and let us know.

  • You take your pet to the vet as scheduled and present your voucher to them when you check in. You can add selected services at that time, at your cost.  The vet will not honor our voucher if you elect to have declawing, tail docking, ear cropping or any other mutilating services performed at the same time as the spay/neuter surgery.

  • You will return to the veterinarian to pick up your pet as directed by their office and pay any charges above your voucher's value (if any).  If the cost is less than the voucher amount, you do not get "cash back".

  • You should read and follow any post-surgery instructions that are provided to you by the servicing veterinarian practice. 

  • If you have any questions or concerns after the surgery, you should direct them to the veterinarian practice that did the surgery.

  • After the surgery is performed, the veterinarian will bill Wags and Whiskers for up to the voucher value for each surgery and rabies vaccination provided.  Wags and Whiskers will pay the veterinarian for the amount of that bill.

This assistance is made possible through donations from 
individuals and grants from other organizations.
