Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets:

Please copy the attached poster with the next voucher issue dates, share it with your friends & neighbors, send it to your organization contacts, and post it in your community where ever possible. Also attached is a ½ page SNAP schedule that can be given to people who have intact pets.

SNAP will issue FREE spay/neuter vouchers to low income Monroe County residents on Saturday, October 7 from 10 – 11am at the Cora Veal Senior Center, 144 College Street, Madisonville. A picture ID or other proof of residency is required.

A pet owner can receive multiple vouchers, enough to “fix” all their cats and dogs.

The next SNAP voucher issue sessions are scheduled:

  • October 7 at Madisonville Cora Veal Senior Center from 10 to 11am

  • November 11 at Madisonville Cora Veal Senior Center from 10 to 11am
SNAP is having an excellent year. We completed s/n surgery #16,000 since beginning operation in 2003. So far 1268 s/n surgeries have been completed through September 1 compared to our budget of 1100. At this rate, SNAP may be able to complete 1500 s/n surgeries in 2017.

SNAP has completed more than the required 500 cat surgeries from Madisonville under a special PetSmart grant. The residual balance of funds can be used for dogs and cats from all towns in Monroe County.

SNAP is still emphasizing Cats in our 2017 advertising because so many more cats are being euthanized than dogs at the County Animal Shelter. To fix this problem, we have to reduce the Monroe County Cat population. We must spay/neuter many more cats, especially free roaming cats, barn cats, neighborhood cats, stray & feral cats -- any cat that can be placed in a carrier and taken to the vet. SNAP Free spay/neuter vouchers can be used to fix these cats.

SNAP received a Rachel Ray Save Them All grant to fix 120 cats that will help reduce the cat population.

Any qualified low income resident of Monroe County can obtain free spay/neuter vouchers at the voucher issue sessions. If someone cannot attend a SNAP voucher issue session, a friend or relative can pick up a voucher - proof of residence and information about pet owner & pet must be provided.

Funding to pay for the vouchers to be issued is provided by grants from: PetSmart Charities®, Bissell Pet Foundation, Radio Systems Corporation/PetSafe®, Petco Foundation, Rachel Ray Save Them All (A No More Homeless Pets organization), TN Dept. of Health (Spay Neuter License Plates). and Monroe County Friends of Animals (MCFA).
