ALVMF Spay/Neuter License Plate Surgery Program

Through the ALVMF Spay/Neuter License Plate Program, proceeds from statewide tag sales offset the cost of spay/neuter surgeries performed at participating hospitals throughout the state of Alabama. As of September 30, 2015, 22,174 tags have been sold or renewed and 14,927 surgeries have been performed. A great effort in reducing the unnecessary pet population in our state.

Currently, there are over 60 veterinary hospitals participating in this program. A co-pay of $10 per cat or $20 per dog must be paid by the Medicaid recipient, the remaining balance is paid to veterinarians through a grant supported by the license plate sales. There is a limit of two animals per household per year.

Qualifications for the program:

Recipients must be residents of the state of Alabama.

Recipients must be on Medicaid

Recipients are responsible for co-pay as described above

Participating clinics must apply for permit numbers prior to surgeries. To find a participating veterinary clinic in your county, click the link below and then look under your county.
