Spay/Neuter Resources in Racine and Ozaukee Counties

About the SNAP program

The Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) program is designed to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low cost spay/neuter services to the Racine County and Ozaukee County communities.  Appointments are offered on select days depending on campus, with drop-offs scheduled in the morning and pick-ups in the late afternoon/early evening.  For preventative, follow-up, emergency or any services other than spay/neuter, please contact your veterinarian.  

Who qualifies?

To qualify for the low-income tier, you must demonstrate financial need by presenting one of the following:

  • Forward card or proof of state medical benefits
  • Quest card or proof of state food assistance
  • Wisconsin Works
  • Letter confirming current unemployment compensation
  • College/University student ID
  • Social Security letter or statement
  • Kinship Care statement
  • Proof of income demonstrating yearly household income at or below poverty line

If you do not meet the above criteria, you can still participate in the SNAP program.  All animals must be current on both Rabies and Distemper vaccinations before scheduling an appointment.  It is highly recommended that dogs also be current on Bordetella as well, although it is not required. Check for information about our next low-cost vaccine clinic.

How do I apply?

To apply, you must present the following in person at the Wisconsin Humane Society:

  • A completed SNAP application
  • Proof of vaccinations (Rabies & Distemper) for each animal you wish to have spayed/neutered
  • If applicable, proof of financial need (see above list)
  • Payment for services

Once all items have been received, your appointment will be scheduled.  Due to the popularity and demand for the program, we are unable to accept partially completed applications or schedule appointments before receiving all information.
