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. Grant funding must be requested when making the appointment. Appointments are required and can be scheduled by clicking here. Grant funding cannot be used for feral cats, unless otherwise specified. Grant funds cannot be combined – only one grant fund can be used per pet. Spay Memphis will not approve grant funding for pets purchased from breeders, pet stores, or designer breed pets.

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.

This is for dogs and cats only and cannot be combined with any other grant funding. If your pet is already microchipped or up to date on vaccines, please let us know when scheduling that your pet does not need this service, however, it does not change the pricing when using this grant.
