Grant/Donor Funding

All grant/donor funding is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Grant funding is for individually owned pets only. This means grants cannot be used by rescue groups, shelters, breeders, etc. The availability of grants/donor funding may change at any time. No grant/donor funding is guaranteed until the appointment is confirmed. Must mention grant when making the appointment. Grant funding cannot be used for feral cats, rabbits, or pigs unless otherwise specified. Grant funds cannot be combined – only one grant fund can be used per pet.

NEW – some grant funding is listed as a “waitlist grant”. This means funding is this grant is depleted or almost depleted. You can choose to be added to the waitlist for this funding and if it becomes available by your appointment date, it will be applied. 

Spay Memphis reserves the right to limit the number of pets per pet owner/household that can use grant funding, especially when grant funding is low. Grant funds are limited & should only be used if you have a genuine need & our already discounted prices are beyond your financial ability.
