Voucher Qualifications

Humane Solution's program is intended for pet owners in true financial need. Please help us to stay true to our mission of providing services to those who cannot otherwise afford spay-neuter services. Humane Solution uses NC HUD income guidelines to determine eligibility for our vouchers.

 

Voucher Household Income Guidelines:

1 Person - $39,200

2 Person - $44,800

3 Person - $50,400

4 Person - $56,000

6 Person - $64,950

If you receive public assistance, you qualify. If you have questions about income qualifications or are experiencing an unforeseen situation, please email us at info@humanesolution.org so that we may assist you. If you do not qualify for our program, you will be issued a full refund.

 

Voucher turnaround time is typically within 2 days when the voucher and payment are submitted together. High Voucher application volume can affect this timing.

 

 

*Disclaimer*

Humane Solution reserves the right to deny any application without the need to disclose a cause.

 

 

Humane Solution spay-neuter vouchers cover the cost of surgery only. Please check with your chosen vet about any additional requirements and other charges that may occur. The voucher holder is responsible for all additional charges, so please budget accordingly.

What Happens Next

When we receive your application and payment, we will mail you a voucher card within 2 days of receipt. If you have not received your voucher after 10 days, please contact us.

 

After you receive your voucher, make an appointment with the veterinary hospital you selected on your application.

 

On the day of your appointment, take the voucher and vaccination records, if applicable.  If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment, please notify the veterinary hospital and reschedule your appointment.

 

Vouchers typically expire after 2 months (please note the expiration date on your voucher after you receive it) and there is a $10 fee to reissue expired vouchers within 6 months of the issue date. Please contact us if you need your voucher reissued or mail the voucher back to us with a $10 check/money order for a reissued voucher.

 

Full Re-issue/Refund Policy:

  • Depending on the age of the pet, the vouchers typically expire after 2 months. There is an additional 4 month grace period after the expiration date when you can request a re-issue for a $10 fee or a refund. After 6 months from the issue date your voucher is considered null and void. Your voucher fee will be considered a donation. We don’t want to risk your pet going into heat or getting pregnant.
  • If you need your voucher reissued, please return the expired voucher to Humane Solution along with a $10 reissue fee within 6 months of the issue date. If the voucher is not for the same pet, please provide an application with the new pet’s information.
  • If needed, vouchers can be refunded by request only during the 6 month active period of the voucher. You will need to mail in your voucher and email info@humanesolution.org to ask for a refund. If you choose to donate your voucher fee for our “Spay it Forward” campaign, a tax-deductible receipt will be mailed to you.

 

Humane Solution has instructed vets to refuse vouchers if you request declawing of your cat and ear or tail docking of your dog at the time of the spay-neuter surgery.

 

Please realize that your pet will be undergoing surgery and will be under anesthesia. As with any surgery, there may be risks, depending on your pet's overall health. The vets may ask for additional tests before surgery, and in some cases, require those tests. Please discuss this with the hospital prior to your appointment and budget accordingly.

 

Humane Solution spay-neuter vouchers cover the cost of the surgery, and vets that participate in our program may have individual requirements or charge additional fees over the cost of the voucher that are your responsibility to pay.

 

Additional charges from the vet may include:

  • Additional vaccinations
  • Overweight pets
  • Females that are in heat or pregnant
  • Males whose testicles have not dropped (cryptorchid)
  • Postoperative pain medication
  • Exam or voucher fees

 

If you can afford to pay more than the voucher cost, we can "Spay it Forward" to help other needy applicants. Any overage amount would be helpful. You can "Spay it Forward" using our regular donation button above.
