Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program Overview and Application Form

The Town of Nipawin recognizes the issue of numerous unwanted cats and dogs. This issue arises from the unspayed and unneutered cats and dogs living in our community. Financial resources are being provided to assist low income pet owners who could not otherwise afford to have their pets spayed or neutered and vaccinated. It is recognized that it is important to vaccinate pets to minimize diseases being spread and maintain a healthy community.


Any person who is a resident of the Town of Nipawin and whose total household income falls under Statistics Canada’s Low Income Cut Offs (LICO) based on the number of people in the applicant’s immediate family (parents/guardians and their children who are under 19 years of age – with a maximum of two adults).

The Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program is limited to cats and dogs only.
