What is Elmore SNIP?

SNIP--Spay/Neuter Incentive Program, provides vouchers that subsidize a portion of the cost for cat or dog spay/neutering for use at local participating veterinarian offices.  

In January 2016, Elmore kicked off this program after raising seed money in the amount of $5,000. As of July, Elmore has issued $5,715 in vouchers to Clinton County residents, and have replenished the funds with $3,384.69 from fundraising and donations.

Requests for vouchers continue to pour in. Please help us to keep this needed and valuable community service going. 

Program benefits include improved quality of life for animals and reduced population. 

Animal Shelters Evolve

Nationally, today's shelter is not only the place you go to adopt a pet, but it is also the resource pet owners often seek out for assistance to keep their animal in their homes. 

We know that the cost of ordinary pet care today is very expensive. W e never want anyone denied the love and companionship of their beloved pet, because basic necessities are not affordable.  

In the past, animal surrender was considered the only option when contacting an animal shelter.  Today we strive to offer possibilities. We look to work together to identify obstacles, pursue options, and hopefully, keep loved pets in their homes.  When surrender or rehoming is necessary, we look to provide choice to address these needs.  

Like pet owners, we too are extremely saddened when requests exceed our ability to provide help. We take the responsibility you have entrusted in us very seriously, and will continue to labor for improved animal resources.
