We are thrilled to share some exciting news with our beloved Lee County residents! The Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Program, SNYP+, at Lee County Humane Society has been awarded a generous $20,000 grant from Petco! This incredible grant will help us make a significant impact in tackling the overpopulation issue in our community.
In an effort to extend our reach and assist more households, we have decided to temporarily expand our SNYP+ program. Thanks to Petco's support, we're opening up applications to households whose total income exceeds $50,000.
Here's how the expanded SNYP+ program works: Each month, we'll be issuing a limited number of vouchers to households with an income ranging from $50,000 to $75,000. These vouchers will enable you to get your pets spayed or neutered at a significantly reduced cost! It's an excellent opportunity for those who previously didn't qualify based on income but now meet the criteria.
Given the limited number of vouchers available, we encourage you to submit your information as soon as possible. Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to participate in our temporary addition to the SNYP+ Program.
SNYP+ Program Requirements:
- Proof of residency in Lee County, AL. Please present a utility bill that has your name, address, and is dated within the last 45 days.
- Proof of household income: Present the first page of your Federal tax return.
- Photo ID
- Phone number and email address
- Copay due at the time of surgery: $15 for cats / $25 for dogs
- Pet owners must supply proof of current rabies vaccination, or a rabies vaccine will be administered at the time of surgery for $12. (SNYP+ also includes a free microchip!)
We are immensely grateful to Petco for making this expansion possible, and we extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the Lee County residents for your continued support in resolving the overpopulation issue in our community. Together, we can create a healthier and happier environment for our beloved pets!
