The Limited Income Spay and Neutering program is designed to support low income individuals & families, in the Campbell River region. CRPAWS works together with a network of veterinarians who are donating part of the cost of the regular spay/neuter prices to help those who cannot otherwise afford to spay or neuter their pets.

Please consider the hard work that goes into this program and return the kindness by volunteering or spreading the word to your friends and family about responsible pet ownership and spay and neuter practices.
