Spay and Neuter Assistance (SNAP)

The Winnipeg Humane Society is committed to reducing the number of homeless pets in our community. Providing an affordable spay and neuter option to all Manitobans is part of our plan.

Low income families can apply for the SNAP program to get their cat spayed or neutered for around $30 within the City of Winnipeg. (Please call for the applicable fee schedule outside city limits.)

There are many ways to qualify, so call 204-888-SNAP to see if you do!  You will be required to provide proof of household income (most current income tax information for all occupants) or proof of social assistance in order to participate in SNAP.  We recommend that your pet be spayed/neutered anytime after the age of four months and ideally before the first heat.

Subsidized spay and neuter surgeries are also available for dogs and rabbits, and for pets living outside of Winnipeg.  Participants in this program may qualify according to their household income.

All pets participating in this program are required to have their full vaccinations with records provided to the clinic staff.  If needed, a subsidy vaccination will be administered at the time of the surgery.
