We are delighted to announce that the SNYP Spay/Neuter Clinic has been awarded a $4,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its low-income spay/neuter program. This Petco Foundation investment will help the clinic provide spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats of low-income residents in Jackson, Josephine, and neighboring counties.
“Our mission has always been to assist underserved populations of people and animals who are most in need, and this grant from the Petco Foundation will help us be able to do just that — especially right now, when the demand is highest during kitten season,” said SNYP Board President Sally Mackler.
Since opening in February, the SNYP clinic has performed more than 579 surgeries, including 492 cat spays and neuters and 87 dog surgeries.
