By completing and signing this document, I am requesting that services be provided to my pet through LHAWA’s Spay Neuter Assistance Program. I understand that LHAWA provides funds to assist pet owners with the cost of spaying, neutering, vaccinations, or microchipping services that will be completed at a veterinarian's office and there is a portion of the cost that I must pay at the time of my scheduled appointment. A veterinarian is providing all veterinary services and LHAWA holds no liability in medical outcomes or additional services and/or costs you receive. I also understand that if I need to reschedule my original appointment that this must be done directly through your veterinarian 24 hours before the date of the procedure. In addition, I understand that if I NO CALL/NO SHOW my first appointment, I will be forfeiting SNAP assistance for 6 months and will be able to reapply again for services after 6 months has passed. If I NO CALL/NO SHOW the second application/appointment, I understand that I will be forfeiting SNAP assistance indefinitely.

Thank you! We will review your information, and we'll be in touch!
