The Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills was organized and is supported by the Companion Animal Clinic of the Sandhills Foundation. The Foundation, organized as a 501c3 organization in 2006, purchased and remodeled the SNVC building into the premier spay/neuter facility that exists today. With support from CACF the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills was opened in 2008. The result of this combined effort by CACF and the SNVC has resulted in 80,000 surgeries provided in central North Carolina.
In its first year of operation, the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills performed over 4,200 spay/neuter surgeries for the initial nine county service area. By the end of 2008, the SNVC was performing at the rate of over 40 surgeries a day for individuals and groups from all nine counties. By spring 2012, 25,000 spay/neuter surgeries were provided at the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills and the coverage area expanded from nine counties to eleven counties in Central NC. By 2018 over 70,000 surgeries were provided to a thirteen-county service area. Now at 60+ surgeries a day, the SNVC continues to provide an invaluable service to the community anticipating provision of over 80,000 surgeries by the end of 2020.
Here at SNVC, our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and increase the quality of life for pets through increasing accessibility to spay and neuter services to cats and dogs in our local, and surrounding areas. SNVC works with area animal shelters, rescues, and individual pet owners to provide affordable pet surgeries in North Carolina to achieve our mission.
