Spay & Neuter Program- SNyPS


Thank you for your interest in getting your pet spayed/neutered. This program is in high demand – please be patient with us as we work through requests. Often your pet will be scheduled a few months from the initial request. If you are not in need of a low-cost program such as ours, then we strongly encourage you to use your own veterinarian for your pet’s spay/neuter procedure. We also 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.

What is SNyPS?

SNyPS stands for “Spay and Neuter your PetS.” It is a  low-cost spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats, open to the public, and brought to you by the SPCA of Northern Nevada. (The program was previously known as Spay Nevada.)

Why Spay and Neuter?

There are many reasons why you should spay/neuter your pet. This is an important decision for all pet owners, and a responsible one for our pet population. Roughly six to eight million dogs and cats come through shelters around the United States each year, and only three to four million of those animals are adopted. Getting your animal spayed or neutered is the most effective way to help mitigate the high national rate of companion animal euthanasia.

The SPCA of Northern Nevada strongly encourages spaying or neutering of pets to help with the overpopulation crisis. Spaying/neutering will not only prevent unwanted pregnancies, it will also make your pet healthier and live longer.
