Currently There are Two Other Options to Help Low-Income Oklahomas Spay/Neuter Their Pets:
The following will qualify a person for the OKVMA program; you must send a copy of your letter or card along with your application:
- a Medicaid (not Medicare) care card
- Social Security Award Letter (this is the original letter you get when you go on Social Security that says “NOTICE OF AWARD” and it is the only Social Security document they will accept)
- an EBT Card (food stamp card) plus a recent Notice of Certification
- a letter from DHS stating what type of assistance you receive and confirming low income
- a current Sooner Care health card
The OKVMA issues denials throughout the month but they only send out letters of approval around the end of the month. Once you receive your approval letter, you must have your pet altered within 15 days of the date of the approval letter. Local veterinarians that participate in the OKVMA program are Dr. Elliott (456.8281), Dr. Horn (453.2655), Dr. Ullum (456.8555).
