Spay/Neuter Grant Request Guidelines and Eligibility

Friends of the Animals has a deep commitment to ensuring as many dogs and cats in our community are spayed/neutered in order to address the pet overpopulation crisis. In an effort to assist other animal welfare organizations in Southern Oregon, FOTAS invites our community partners to apply for grant funding to help cover their costs associated with spaying/neutering dogs and cats in their care.

  • Funds may only be used for spay/neuter surgery and recovery costs; animals may not be owned animals
  • Organizations must have an annual budget of less than $500,000
  • Organizations must submit the provided final report detailing the number, type, and gender of animals altered to be considered for future funding within 12 months of receiving funds. While receipts are not required, you may be audited.
  • Applicants are not eligible for future funding until final report has been submitted.
