Our History

Spay/Neuter Your Pet (SNYP) was founded in 1997 by a core group of animal welfare advocates who wanted to focus 100 percent of their energy on prevention. From its inception, SNYP has annually grown in both the scope of programs offered and the number of clients served. Thousands of people call our helpline each year—proof there is a tremendous need for our services.

For more than 20 years, SNYP worked closely with the veterinary community that provided its services at reduced rates for SNYP clients. SNYP is forever grateful for the many dedicated veterinary clinics that participated in SNYP programs over the past 20+ years.

In August of 2018, SNYP was approached with an opportunity to start a low-cost spay/neuter clinic. Our goal was to relieve the pressures created by SNYP programs on the local veterinary community while being able to continue offering low-cost spay/neuter services to the community.

After much research and work, SNYP opened a spay/neuter clinic at 111 N. Pacific Hwy in Talent, Oregon.

Spay/Neuter Your Pet (SNYP) is a 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID number 91-1804542).

About the new clinic

Why Invest in SNYP?

SNYP will be able to continue to help the under-served population in Jackson County

Serving those kind-hearted individuals that love their pets but can’t afford the cost of a spay/neuter surgery has been a founding principle of our organization. The new clinic allows us to expand our support to more families and seniors.

SNYP has expanded its services to neighboring Josephine, Klamath and Siskiyou counties

For the past 21 years, SNYP has focused its resources only in Jackson County.  The new clinic allows us to expand our services to neighboring counties.  We will now be able not only to provide spay/neuter services to the general public but also to shelters and rescue groups.

SNYP is growing its community (feral and stray) cat services

Increasing the number of community (feral and stray) cats served is a major incentive for SNYP.  With the new facility, we have begun offering two community cat days per month to make an impact on this overpopulation crisis.

SNYP supports shelter spay/neuter before adoption needs in three counties

SNYP provides shelters and rescue groups in three counties with affordable spay/neuter services for pets before adoption.  This is a win-win service that supports the shelters’ fix-before-adoption initiatives and also helps bring revenue to our clinic.


SNYP will be able to create new spay/neuter services for specialty breeds such as Pit Bulls
SNYP is presently investigating special campaigns targeted at addressing the overpopulation of specialty breeds such as Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas.  SNYP is seeking funding to help subsidize these new programs.
