A grant from the Petco Foundation allowed Spay Neuter Idaho Pets Inc. to make 212 spay/neuter vouchers available to income-qualified individuals Oct. 29.
The grant paid for 58 dog vouchers and 154 vouchers, according to a news release. Recipients were asked to donate at least $5 for the vouchers. Eligibility was determined through proof of income. The vouchers make spaying and neutering pets affordable to people who otherwise would not be able to afford those surgeries, lowering the potential population of unwanted dogs and cats.
