Love Me, Fix Me 

Our Love Me, Fix Me (LMFM) program offers low-cost spay/neuter vouchers for qualifying low-income pet owners. This program aims to remove barriers to spaying and neutering pets and ensure that all Sonoma County residents have access to affordable spay/neuter services.

A LMFM voucher for your dog or cat includes spay or neuter surgery and microchip. Dogs receive rabies vaccinations if needed, and a dog license if applicable.
