 Applications are first come first served.

What is SNyPS?

SNyPS stands for “Spay and Neuter your PetS.”

It is a  low-cost spay/neuter clinic for in for dogs and cats, open to the public for income-qualified households of $60,000 or less who are residents of northern Nevada.

Why Spay and Neuter?

There are many reasons why you should spay/neuter your pet:

  • To help mitigate the high national rate of companion animal euthanasia.
  • To prevent unwanted pregnancies
  • To help your pet live a longer, healthier life

Minimum spay/neuter ages

  • Kittens must be at least 2 lbs to be spayed or neutered.
  • Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old to be spayed or neutered.
  • Mothers can be spayed 2 weeks post welping.

What you need to know:

  • A non-refundable deposit ($25 for cats, $50 for dogs) is required at the time you schedule an appointment. The deposit will be deducted from your total surgery fees after you show up.
  • Appointments are filled on a first-come, first-served basis to qualifying applicants who submitted their deposit.
  • Rescheduling is not an option once an appointment has been made.
  • If your pet is in heat or pregnant, the additional costs associated with the surgery will be the owner’s responsibility.
  • Surgeries can be scheduled up to six weeks in advance.
  • While we encourage you to apply and pay online, applications and cash deposits may be submitted in person.
  • If your dog is over 99lbs, we cannot fix them and your deposit will NOT be refunded.
  • Self-administered vaccines are not accepted. All vaccines must have been administered by a licensed veterinarian.

We recommend that all pet owners establish a relationship with a local, full-service veterinary hospital to provide for your pet’s health throughout its lifetime.
