Spay & Neuter
WHAT IS S.N.I.P?
This is our Spay Neuter Incentive Program.
We provide low cost spay and neuter to families for their own pets.
We pay 2/3 of the cost and they pay only 1/3 to 3 local vets. This also includes a rabies shot.
Please encourage family, friends and neighbors to have their pets spayed and neutered. If cost is an issue for them, let them know about S.N.I.P.
To neuter a male cat it costs about $120. HSBR pays $80 and the family pays $40
To neuter a male dog it costs about $180. HSBR pays $120 and the family pays $60.
We can always use monetary donations for this program. If you would like to donate specifically to S.N.I.P. please designate that in your donation. PASS IT ON!
Spay Neuter can be utilized for community animals as well as pets.
We encourage everyone to be on the lookout for feral cats and take advantage of additional Low-Cost Spay/Neuter assistance programs to help control feral populations.
Why is it so important to spay and neuter?
One unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years.
In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!
The humane way to combat pet overpopulation is through spay and neuter programs.
