Support Clinic Best Practices
Help keep the clinic running smoothly
A low-cost spay/neuter clinic can only stay in business if we provide high-quality care at a high volume. If you are interested in supporting our veterinary team throughout the day, we’ll be happy to train you. Here are some opportunities:
Animal check-in and check-out
We need support in the mornings and afternoons to help check in and discharge the day’s client load.
Spend time monitoring patients after their spay or neuter surgery.
Vet tech support
Help clean and sterilize surgical instruments for quick turnaround, and help keep the clinic ship-shape throughout the day.
We use best practices for a low-cost, high-volume, high-quality clinic. There’s lots to learn, and it’s a fascinating opportunity for someone who might want to go into veterinary medicine.
One of our key initiatives is to increase the number of community (feral) cats we fix.
Presently, SNYP provides support for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) of feral cats to their home territories. TNR has been found to be the most effective, humane, and long-term method of feral cat population control. Not only does it stop the growth of the colony, but it also eliminates many undesirable behaviors such as spraying, yowling, wandering, and littering. TNR makes community cats better neighbors and healthier colonies. We will train you in the best and most humane trapping practices, loan out equipment, and provide spay and neuter surgeries, vaccines, flea treatments, ear tipping, and tatooing for a very reduced cost.
TNR volunteers are a special group of dedicated people. We welcome anyone who would like to find out more about how to help us support TNR.
