Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets:

SNAP wishes everyone a Happy New Year and a Prosperous 2018. Be sure your new year resolutions include – I will have no unplanned litters and will “fix” all my intact pet dogs and cats in 2018.

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, January 27 from 10 – 11am at the Sweetwater Town Hall, Upstairs Council Room, 203 Monroe Street, Sweetwater. A picture ID or other proof of residency is required.

The number of available vouchers will limited due to funding.

2017 was a banner year for SNAP. 1632 s/n surgeries have been completed and which almost equals the most SNAP has ever done in one year in Monroe County. This is 532 more than our annual budget of 1100 s/n surgeries.

The next SNAP voucher issue sessions are scheduled:

  • January 27 at Sweetwater Town Hall from 10 to 11am

  • February 24 at Tellico Plains Community Center from 10 to 11am

  • (Future sessions will depend on obtaining additional grants from Foundations.)
Again, SNAP is emphasizing Cats 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.

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

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: Petco Foundation, Bernice Barbour Foundation, Rachel Ray Save Them All/ Best Friends Animal Society, Williamson County Humane Association, and Monroe County Friends of Animals (MCFA).
