ABOUT SPAY/NEUTER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

ABOUT SNAP

Spay Neuter Assistance Program, Inc. (SNAP) is an all-volunteer 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated solely to offering affordable safe spay/neuter alternatives for dogs and cats in the hopes of bringing an end to the needless suffering they endure as a result of overpopulation.

SNAP has no paid employees or staff. Management of all spay/neuter programs, fundraising, and administrative functions are performed strictly by volunteers.

HIGH VOLUME spaying and neutering is the only way to end pet overpopulation. One hundred percent of our efforts and 99.5 percent of our financial resources are put toward this single purpose. Thanks to our network of participating veterinarians, we can offer reduced fee spay/neuter services for both cats and dogs.

SNAP'S MISSION

To eliminate pet overpopulation as a cause of death, suffering, abuse, neglect, and abandonment by providing safe, low cost spay/neuter alternatives for cats and dogs.

SNAP'S HISTORY

Spay Neuter Assistance Program, Inc. was founded in 1981 as Central Pennsylvania Spay/Neuter Fund, Inc. The number of dogs and cats that were spayed/neutered during the organization's first year in operation totaled 306.

Several years later the name was shortened to Spay/Neuter Fund, Inc. Then, in conjunction with SNAP's 20th anniversary, the board changed the name to what it is today... Spay Neuter Assistance Program, Inc. (SNAP). That name best describes us to this day.

Currently, the average number of cats/dogs that we serve annually exceeds 5,000. A high percentage of these surgeries is completely funded by SNAP. That's why financial donations are so important to us.

Not only does SNAP offer financial assistance to pet owners, but through our "special projects" initiative, SNAP is instrumental in spaying/neutering uncontrolled colonies of feral and free-roaming cats.

With all we do, our monies have to extend further each year to cover our never-ending projects. Each year that cost increases as we are met with greater need for low-cost spay/neuter assistance. SNAP will continue to be there to provide that assistance thanks to generous donations from people like you.
