SNAP - Racine Campus

8900 16th Street, Mount Pleasant, WI 53177 | 262-554-6699

The Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low-cost spay/neuter services at the WHS Racine Campus for those who qualify. Appointments are offered on select days, with drop-offs scheduled in the morning and pick-ups in the late afternoon/early evening. For preventative care, emergency, or any services other than spay/neuter, please contact your veterinarian. Please read the information below to see if you qualify. 

Who qualifies?

To be eligible for SNAP, you must demonstrate financial need by meeting one of the following criteria below. You may be asked to furnish proof on the day of your appointment. 

  • Forward card or proof of state Medicaid
  • Quest card or proof of state food assistance
  • Wisconsin Works
  • Letter confirming current unemployment compensation
  • Social Security letter or statement
  • Proof of income demonstrating yearly household income at or below 150% of the poverty line.

To qualify for SNAP, your animal must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be up to date on both Rabies and Distemper (FVRCP for cats and DHPP for dogs) vaccinations at the time of your appointment. You will be asked to furnish proof on the day of your appointment.  It is highly recommended that dogs also be up to date on Bordetella as well, although it is not required. Check here for information about our next low-cost vaccine clinic. 
  • Must be between the ages of 3 months and 7 years old.
  • Must weigh between 2 pounds and 100 pounds to be eligible for surgery. 

Your animal will not be eligible for surgery through the SNAP program if any of the following apply: 

  • Known or suspected adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • History of having a C-section
  • Diagnosis of diabetes,  FeLV+, currently heartworm+, heart murmur or heart condition, or other serious illness. 

Because safety is our priority, these conditions would make your animal ineligible for surgery at WHS. We recommend you follow up with a private veterinarian. There are other medical concerns that may make your animal ineligible for surgery and this determination can be made any time up to and including the date of surgery. If WHS determines that your animal is ineligible for our services, a full refund will be provided for services paid.
