Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)

The SNAP program was established to provide Placer County residents with free or subsidized spay and neuter services for their cats, dogs and rabbits. Please see below for cost and services for the type of animal you have. For other low-cost spay and neuter services, visit www.sacanimal.org.

If you know of someone who could benefit from our program, please print and share our SNAP flyer.

Please note:

  • In order to receive spay and neuter services for free or at low-cost, you must reside in Placer County.

  • Kittens must be at least 8 weeks old or weigh a minimum of two pounds to be safely spayed or neutered.

  • Additional services, such as vaccines and other medical treatment, will be at your own expense.

  • Free or low-cost spay and neuter services for Placer County residents will continue while funding is available.

SNAP is funded by the generosity of donors and through foundations and other grantors who share our mission of bringing an end to overpopulation. Click here to donate to this program.


Cats

Owned Cats:

We offer subsidized spay and neuter services for cats whose owners reside in Placer County. To get your cat spayed or neutered, we require a $10 co-pay per individual cat. Payment will be due at the time of service.

For owned cats, we encourage you to schedule a clinic appointment with us. Register early, as these clinics fill quickly.

Please note: You must choose only one date to register an animal. If you register the same animal for more than one clinic, your registration will be canceled and you'll be prevented from signing up for future clinics. At this time, we have a two animal limit. If you have more than two animals that you would like to make appointments for at our mobile clinic, please email us at snap@placerspca.org so that we can put your additional animals on a wait-list for the date you’d like to make an appointment for.
