It’s hip to SNyP!

Our affordable spay-neuter clinic for dogs and cats is open to income-qualified households of $60,000 or less in Northern Nevada. Spaying and neutering pets is important to help mitigate the high national rate of pet euthanasia, prevents unwanted pregnancies, and helps your pet live a longer, healthier life!

Please note if you only see availability for vaccine clinic appointments, that means there are no spay and neuter appointments available at the time. Spay and Neuter appointments will only appear on the first Thursday of the month.

Flyer for low cost spay/neuter clinic

Washoe County Regional Animal Services (WCRAS) has partnered with the SPCA of Northern Nevada to provide affordable spay and neuter services for dogs and cats belonging to low-income residents of Washoe County who qualify. This program is made possible by a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (“ASPCA”).

Through this program, you can get your dog spayed/neutered for $20 or cat for $10!

To qualify you must be very low income or receive other governmental assistance such as SNAP, disability or unemployment due to COVID-19 and you must be a Washoe County resident.   We also offer free microchips, vaccinations and first-time licenses to those who qualify for the spay/neuter program.

Call Washoe County Regional Animal Services to see if you qualify: (775) 353-8955

WCRAS staff, contract veterinarian and support staff will be on-site to assist with this program. All pets must be current on vaccinations or they will receive vaccinations at the time of spay/neuter.

Dogs over four months of age are required to be licensed and WCRAS will provide the first license for free. If it is not a first- time license, renewals licenses are $8.
