Dogs Trust Subsidised Neutering Scheme

Dogs Trust is delighted to be able to offer a Subsidised Neutering Scheme to dog owners in receipt of specific means-tested Social Welfare payments, who need help covering the cost of neutering their dog. The scheme is offered through a network of participating Veterinary Practices across the country*.

For the greatly reduced rate of €35, eligible dog owners can avail of a neutering voucher in a vet local to them, if available. Dog owners can check if they are eligible for the scheme, and find out which vets near them are participating, by calling our dedicated Neutering Hotline on 1890 946 336.

Please note that only a limited number of vouchers are available each year and any available vouchers are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Once a vet has run-out of vouchers, there will be no more available for that year. Dogs Trust is a charity that receives no Government funding and relies solely on donations from our wonderful supporters in order to continue life-saving schemes such as this.
