Spay Neuter Assistance for Pets:

Please copy the attached poster with the next voucher issue date, 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, November 11 from 10 – 11am at the Cora Veal Senior Center, 144 College Street, Madisonville. A picture ID or other proof of residency is required.

The number of available vouchers may be limited due to funding. There will be no December voucher issue session for the same reason.

None the less, 2017 is an outstanding year for SNAP. So far, 1410 s/n surgeries have been completed and the total will be about 1600 by year-end, possibly the most SNAP has ever done in one year in Monroe County. This is 500 more than our annual budget of 1100 s/n surgeries. As result, SNAP will use up most of our cash reserves to pay for vet s/n surgeries.

That is OK. SNAP’s philosophy has always been to do as many s/n surgeries as possible as soon as possible. This prevents the most litters. One might say that SNAP is maximizing our investment in s/n surgeries.

The next SNAP voucher issue session is scheduled:

November 11 at Madisonville Cora Veal Senior Center from 10 to 11am
(Future sessions will depend on obtaining additional grants from Foundations.)

SNAP is still 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: PetSmart Charities®, Radio Systems Corporation/PetSafe®, Petco Foundation, Rachel Ray Save Them All/ Best Friends Animal Society, and Monroe County Friends of Animals (MCFA).
