The SNAP program is available at our Green Bay, Racine, and Ozaukee Campuses. For low-cost options in the Milwaukee area, check out our Spay-Neuter Clinic here.
The Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) program is designed to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low-cost spay/neuter services to the communities we serve. 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 care, follow-up, emergency or any services other than spay/neuter, please contact your veterinarian.
To qualify for surgery through the SNAP program, dogs and cats must be between 3 months and 7 years old. Rabbits must be at least 6 months and no older than 5 years.
Please note: The Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) at the WHS Green Bay Campus is temporarily on hold as we continue our hiring search for a Shelter Veterinarian. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience! Low-cost spay/neuter services are offered at our Spay/Neuter Clinic located in West Allis. Please check back soon for updates!
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.
