Help us expand our low-cost spay/neuter program by getting more veterinarians to participate. The more veterinarians in our program, the more people we can assist getting their cats and dogs neutered or spayed.

Ask your vet if they participate in our program. If they do, please thank them for us. If not, ask if they’d like some information emailed to them and if they do, please complete this form below so we can get in touch with them.
Thank you for helping to reduce the number of animals turned into shelters.

In this Friends of Animals video that features actor Danny Trejo — best known for his tough-guy roles in “Breaking Bad” and “Machete” – the depiction of homeless cats and dogs reveals the plight of abandoned animals. Share the video to help spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter. The video was created by Atlanta-based breensmith and shot on location at Los Angeles-based North Central Animal Shelter.

It is estimated that 1.5 million dogs and cats are euthanized in U.S. shelters annually (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). Our work has helped bring this number down from 2.6 million. Friends of Animals has successfully altered more than 2.8 million cats and dogs through our low-cost certificates. Spaying and neutering is the most effective means of preventing abandonment, homelessness and routine killings of domestic animals. We rely on your generosity to keep our certificates as affordable as possible. All donations and bequests are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Donate a certificate to those in need

While Friends of Animals’ spay/neuter certificates are priced to be as affordable and accessible as possible, we regularly receive calls from people seeking a free certificate because of a variety of personal circumstances. Unfortunately, we are only occasionally able to provide them due to volume and cost. Additionally, we provide certificates to overwhelmed shelters and rescues each year to help end the systemic killing of animals, which is still a serious problem. The number of certificates we can give them is dependent on grant monies that are inconsistent.

However, with your help we can do more.

Friends of Animals is offering donors the opportunity to underwrite the cost of a certificate by donating one, which will then be distributed to an individual or shelter at Friends of Animals’ discretion. Supporters may make an individual donation of a spay and/or neuter certificate for a cat or dog, or they may also make the donation in someone else’s honor. The honoree will be notified by Friends of Animals and will also receive a year’s subscription of our quarterly magazine, Action Line.
