NEW! NEWS! We have just received a new grant to spay/neuter dogs. This grant is available now. Floerke Veterinary Clinic in Taft, McCoy Veterinary Clinic in Sinton, or Portland Veterinary Hospital in Portland will be providing the services but you will first need to get a voucher from SPCA San Pat County. Additionally, you must be a resident of San Patricio County, Texas in order to qualify for a voucher.
Vouchers for spay and neuter veterinary cost assistance funded by the current grant are available to San Patricio County residents only. These generous vouchers are redeemable at participating veterinary clinics within the county. If you are a San Patricio County resident who wants to take advantage of this spay and neuter cost assistance opportunity, please call us at 361.332.1445 to apply for one of these vouchers for your pet. Specific details as to the exact monetary value of each voucher will be disclosed once you qualify for assistance.
Please note that these vouchers are available only as long as grant funds last, therefore they are distributed on a first–come–first–serve basis. All vouchers must be used within thirty days of receipt otherwise they will expire in which case they will become null and void. There are no exceptions to this thirty–day requirement for cashing in a voucher. Vouchers are accepted at Floerke Veterinary Clinic in Taft, McCoy Veterinary Clinic in Sinton, or Portland Veterinary Hospital in Portland. They cannot be used at any other veterinary clinic so please be sure to make an appointment with one of these veterinary clinics as soon as you are awarded a voucher in order to ensure that it will not expire and become unusable.
