BCPRL Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Program
The Brown County Pet Rescue League in conjunction with Animal Care Clinic in Aberdeen, SD are providing a low-cost spay and neuter program which will be available to lower income families. Altering animals is the only way to reduce the number of stray/unwanted animals in our communities.
The program will run as follows:

3. At the home visit the owner will also sign a release for BCPRL and we will go over the requirements for the surgery. The vets require the animals to have vaccinations (rabies at minimum) to perform the spay or neuter. Therefore, the owner will also be responsible for making sure the pet receives proper vaccinations in a timely manner. BCPRL is not responsible for vaccination costs and the vaccinations must be done at least 2 weeks prior to surgery.
Upon approval at the home visit, the owner will be in charge of scheduling an appointment at the veterinarian WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF THE HOME VISIT (the surgery does not need to be within two weeks, but the appointment must be made in this timeframe) and will be given a voucher that must be presented at the time of the appointment. If needed, arrangements will be made for drop off/pick up of the pet if the owner is found to be unable to transport their pet(s).
***Please let us know when the appointment is scheduled.
4. This program will be provided as long as funding is available.
5. One household is allowed THREE pets total to be spayed/neutered using this program.
6. The final decision of the animals to be altered will be at the discretion of BCPRL.
7. YOUR PAYMENT IS NONREFUNDABLE.
8. An application does not guarantee you will be approved for the program.
