Low Cost Spay and Neuter Services

In case you’re wondering if you should get your pet fixed or perhaps persuade the neighbor next door whose pet keeps having litter after litter, here are a few good reasons to spay and neuter

Snip N’ Chip – Low Cost Spay and Neuter Services

At the CCSPCA, we understand that people realize the importance of altering their animals.  We also understand that many cannot afford the fees. Snip N Chip is a low-cost spay and neuter program is for those people who want to prevent the cycle of unwanted animals, yet simply don’t have the means.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, there are between six and eight million cats and dogs entering American shelters every year. Three to four million of these animals are euthanized.  This crisis is a direct result of animals left unaltered in our communities.
