Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)

Why Spay and Neuter?

Spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision for pet owners. 

In every community, in every state, there are homeless animals. In the U.S. as a whole, there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. Only about half of these animals nationwide are adopted.


Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats. SNAP is a program open to anyone who wishes to seek financial assistance to have their pet spayed or neutered and who meets the following qualifications:
