Citizens of Amsterdam and Diemen who have a “stadspas” with green dot, can make use of the “ADAM-Regeling” which offers “stadspas-holder” to go to the vet for (almost) free.
ADAM stands for Amsterdamse Dierenhulp aan Minima – Amsterdam Animal Assistance for Minimum Incomes.
All types of pets
The discount applies to all types of pets.
One pet only
The offer is available for one pet per stadspas-holder per stadspasyear (september to August). The pet has to be registered on the stadspas-holder, not on for example family, friends or neighbours.
The first consultation is always free.
The local authority compensates 50% on necessary medically treatment that are found and discussed during the first consultation, with a maximum of € 300,-. The vet decides if a treatment is medically necessary or not.
You can not use this offer for any illnessess and/or injuries that arised later.
The local authorisation compensates necessary medical treament costs until the illness and/or injury has been healed or when the maximum of € 300,- has been reached during the current stadspasyear.
Free required microchip for dogs, cats or rabbits
Dogs, cats and rabbits must have a microchip in order to make use of this offer. If your dog, cat or rabbit does not have a microchip yet, the vet will place one at the consultation and also registrers the pet on your name.
Placing a microchip for dogs, cats and rabbits is free.
Please note that when you don’t want your dog, cat or rabbit to have a microchip, you can not use this offer.
Castration/sterilization of dogs, cats and rabbits
Castration/sterilization (permanent) of dogs, cats and rabbits is free until € 100,-. The local authority compensates 50% of the remainder above these € 100,-, with a maximum of € 300,-.
Please note that the local authority covers costs up to a maximum of € 300. This includes the necessary medical treatment and 50% of sterilization/castration costs above € 100. The local authority therefore may not always compensate the total amount of castration/sterilization costs above € 100. The compensation for the first consultation, microchip for dogs, cats and rabbits and the first € 100 for castration/sterilization of dogs, cats and rabbits are not included in the maximum of € 300.
