Pet owners in the City of Moreno Valley are required to spay and neuter their dogs and cats. This free spay and neuter program will help residents comply with the requirement and become part of the ongoing effort to reduce pet overpopulation.

Altering pets reduces the number of unwanted litters, increases the health of pets, and helps control overpopulation at the Animal Shelter.

Free spay and neuter program vouchers will be issued to City of Moreno Valley residents with proof of residency such as a valid ID that reflects a current address or a copy of a current utility bill. Qualifying dogs and cats must be at least four months old and healthy. Pets currently impounded at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter are not eligible.

Vouchers will be issued until funding is no longer available. No more than 4 vouchers will be issued per household. Vouchers are to be used at designated veterinary clinics. Residents are encouraged to make an appointment to have their pet altered as soon as possible.

For more information, please contact the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter at 951.413.3790.
