Ohio Pet Fund Grant

The Ohio Pet Plate fund has provided Rascal Charities, Inc. with a grant to provide subsidized sterilization surgeries for dogs and cats belonging to owners in need of financial assistance. Thanks to this grant, we are able to offer dog surgeries for $35 and cat surgeries for $20, which includes surgery, pain medication, and rabies vaccination if due.


The surgeries will be scheduled at the Rascal Unit in Dublin by appointment. This program is only available to Ohio residents, but pet owners residing in any Ohio county are eligible.


To qualify, pet owners must provide picture id and proof of one of the following:


  1. Section 8 housing voucher
  2. Schedule letter from Ohio Works First
  3. Ohio Medicaid card
  4. Letter from Veteran Benefits Administration acknowledging service-related disability
  5. Ohio Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Card, also called the Direction Card, for supplemental nutrition assistance program, SNAP (previously referred to as “food stamps”)
  6. WIC card (Women Infants and Children nutrition program)
  7. Benefit letter documenting Supplemental Security Income
  8. Benefit letter documenting assistance from Social Security Disability
  9. Tax return showing owner’s family income does not exceed 150% of the federal poverty guideline.


How the program works:

This program is only open to owned dogs. Spay/neuter procedures will be provided by the Rascal Unit in Dublin. The grant will cover the cost of sterilization (including complicating factors such as heat cycle or cryptorchid males), Rabies vaccination for dogs and cats 12 weeks of age or older, and pain medication. Any additional services requested, such as other vaccinations or microchip placement, will be made available at regular cost.
