Order a Certificate

From its beginning in 1957, FoA has assumed a leadership role in advocating low-cost spaying and neutering as the most effective means of preventing the births of dogs and cats, and their subsequent abandonment, suffering and mass killing. For more than six decades, we have operated the only nationwide breeding control program in the United States facilitating more than 2.8 million spay/neuter procedures.

Pet owners may purchase a certificate from Friends of Animals that can be used for a routine spay or neuter surgery at any of FoA’s participating veterinary hospitals.

Spaying and Neutering Certificates may be purchased below. Certificates ordered online are sent via U.S. First Class postal mail the next business day. Or, you can order by mail by calling 1-800-321-PETS (1-800-321-7387) and request an application. If you haven’t received the certificate in ten business days, email us at or call 1-800-321-7387.

Pricing for our low-cost certificates are:

Male Cat $61.00
Male Dog $74.00
Female Cat $85.00
Female Dog $110.00

(*FoA certificates are not valid for a cat if the cat is to be declawed. You can read our pamphlet “Paws Come With Claws” on the dangers of declawing here.)
