It’s hip to SNyP!

We offer two affordable spay-neuter clinics for dogs and cats: one at the SPCA of Northern Nevada Adoption Center and another at Washoe County Regional Animal Services. Both clinics are open to income-qualified households of $60,000 or less in Northern Nevada. Spaying and neutering pets is important to help mitigate pet over-population, prevent unwanted pregnancies, and helps your pet live a longer, healthier life!

Appointments become available on the first Thursday of the month at 9 a.m.

  • Surgeries will be scheduled up to four weeks in advance.
  • Self-administered vaccines are not accepted. All vaccines must have been administered by a licensed veterinarian.
  • While we encourage you to apply and pay online, applications and deposits may be submitted over the phone. High call volumes will make call backs take longer than usual and do not guarantee an appointment.

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.
