Thank you for your interest in our Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP)! Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted litters that contribute to the problem of pet overpopulation in our community. It can also improve the health and life expectancy of your canine or feline friend.
This income-based program is made possible by the generous cooperation of our local Veterinary Partners. It will be a year-round program replacing Spay/Neuter Thomasville which only lasted for about 6 weeks each year. Those who qualify will be eligible for spay/neuter services at a reduced rate of $50 for cats and $70 for dogs. These prices offer participants a minimum savings of 50% as the average spay/neuter costs can range from between $100-150 for cats and $165-370 for dogs.
SNIP Thomasville is limited to residents of Thomas & Grady counties. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required, or there will be an additional upfront charge of $10 to pay for vaccination on the day of surgery. In order to qualify you must show:
Valid picture I.D. and one of the following:
- EBT Card
- Medicaid Card
- Unemployment Check Stub (with most recent tax return)
- Disability Benefit Verification Letter (with most recent tax return)
Valid picture I.D. and most recent tax return placing you in one of the following income categories:
- One-adult household with income less than $25,000 per year
- Two-adult household with income less than $40,000 per year
SNIP will be coordinated through the Humane Society but implemented at participating local veterinary practices. The TTCHS will be responsible for collecting payment, verifying eligibility of applicants, and issuing official SNIP certificates.
A SNIP application may be printed, completed, and brought with you to save time.
Please note: The physical condition of your pet can affect the cost of surgery. Animals that are in heat, pregnant, cryptorchid, or obese involve additional surgical time and may result in additional charges. Un-bathed or flea-ridden animals are more prone to developing post-surgical infections and should not be taken to the veterinarian in that condition. If the pre-surgical exam shows that your pet has health problems, your vet may require treatment prior to surgery.
Costs for pre-surgical blood tests, vaccinations, and post-surgical pain medications can vary and are not included with this certificate. Such charges are the responsibility of the pet owner.
