Spay It Forward with WAAL

Spay or neuter is a surgical procedure for pets with many health benefits:

Reduces chance of cancer in pets
Reduces male cats’ urge to spray
Eliminates annoying habits of female cats in heat
Sterilized animals generally have longer lifespans

Our mission at WAAL is to rescue animals in crisis and this includes preventing crisis beforehand! Spay It Forward is a voucher program to help owners fix their pet(s). We prevent unwanted litters and work towards ending unnecessary euthanasia by combating the source; overpopulation.

Please keep in mind, per city rules, all pit bulls in the city limits of Wichita are required to be sterilized by five months old. If you are trying to provide for feral cats, TNR vouchers are available! Vouchers only cover the cost of sterilization, any elective vaccinations, testing or microchips are the owner’s responsibility.

Due to the rising expense of no-show fees, our Spay it Forward voucher program has recently changed:

Due to the rising expense of no-show fees, vouchers no longer cover 100% of the surgery. Dog vouchers cost $30 and cat vouchers cost $20, per animal.

However, vouchers now include a microchip and rabies vaccine!
Your fee can be paid online at waalrescue.org/donate or on our Facebook page. Proof of payment must be sent to sif@waalrescue.org. Appointments will not be scheduled without proof of payment beforehand.

Once we receive proof of your payment for your voucher, you will receive an appointment date and instructions.

 

TNR vouchers still cover the full cost of getting a feral cat fixed plus a rabies vaccination. These vouchers are used on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday at Kansas Humane Society. There are four TNR appointments on each day, first-come, first served basis.

We are not accepting voucher requests for cats at this time.
