Marin Humane offers spay/neuter assistance to qualifying low-income Marin County residents through our Pet Safety Net program. Marin Humane’s Pet Safety Net program partners with local veterinary hospitals to provide spay/neuter services to the public, working directly with veterinarians and pet guardians to help lessen the financial burden of altering pets.

Please submit an application to the Pet Safety Net program for spay/ neuter assistance. Eligible pet guardians will be notified of next steps and once approved, can receive a grant of up to $500. The Pet Safety Net program requires a co-pay and pet guardians are responsible for the co-pay and any veterinary costs exceeding the grant.

To qualify:
• You must be 18 years or older
• You and your pet must reside in Marin County
• You are the regular caretaker of the pet
• Your household income must be at or below the U.S. Department of Housing and Development’s (HUD) definition of very low income limits:

HUD 2022 income limits

• Supporting documents, such as proof of income, proof of residency and proof that you are the pet’s guardian must be provided
• All dogs must be licensed in accordance with county laws
• You must agree not to acquire any additional pets.
