The Friends of Pets Spay / Neuter Assistance Program seeks to reduce the number of homeless and unwanted pets, by helping pet owners in the Anchorage area who cannot otherwise afford spay/neuter services. The coupon provides $45 off the cost of a spay or neuter surgery at any veterinary clinic in Alaska, provided that the owner and pet live in the Municipality of Anchorage. Some clinics bill FOP directly, while others require that you pay at the time of surgery. If you pay the clinic yourself, FOP will reimburse you for the coupon amount. 


How to apply for a coupon:


1. Complete this request form.

2. Send the form along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Friends of Pets

3. You MUST include the self-addressed stamped envelope!

4. Schedule the surgery after you receive the coupon, so that the surgery can be completed before the coupon expires.Ask for our list of Anchorage area spay/neuter prices! 


How to redeem your coupon:


1. You must have your coupon in hand prior to surgery.

2. To help community donations go further, this coupon cannot be used with any other coupons or offers, except those promotional discounts made by veterinarians or veterinary clinics. The amount of the coupon cannot exceed the actual cost of surgery.
