Animal Services’ new rebate program
encourages spaying, neutering of dogs, cats

RELEASE DATE: August 23, 2013

TAVARES — On Aug. 13, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners approved funding for a new rebate program to help residents with the costs of spaying and neutering dogs and cats. Under the program, a resident may bring the pet to a licensed veterinary practitioner to receive the procedure, then complete an application that provides up to a $50 rebate to the pet owner. 

“We want to help make it more affordable for owners to have their pets sterilized,” said Cyndi Nason, manager of the Lake County Animal Services Division. “Not only will the program help residents, but also by providing this incentive, it helps reduce the population of unwanted animals that could potentially end up in our shelter.”

The program is open to pet owners who are full-time residents of Lake County and whose pet was spayed or neutered after Aug. 13, 2013. 

A total of $50,000 is being dedicated for the program, with funding being provided by donations and past fines collected. The funding-limited program is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
