Thank you for being concerned about your pet’s health and the pet overpopulation problem in your area. There are several available financial assistance programs that are designed for those in financial need and are available to a limited number of applicants. See below for several of the available programs. If you have questions about which you qualify for let us know!
The SNAP program is designed specifically for Moore County residents whom receive government financial assistance such as; WIC, Food Stamps, Section 8 housing, or Medicaid. In order to qualify for SNAP you will need to provide proof of the assistance, be approved by SNVC prior to your appointment, be over 18 years of age and certify you live in Moore County NC. Please submit a separate application for each pet. The cost of surgery is subsidized by Moore County through a Statewide program to promote spaying and neutering. As a client, you are responsible for the $10 payment which will cover your Rabies vaccine if your Pet is not current on the vaccine and will be used as a deposit to schedule your appointment.
The PRC partners with the SNVC through two programs. As part of the PRC’s Pet Responsibility Program for fourth graders in Moore County, fourth graders can win a free spay or neuter for their pet or the pet of someone they know by writing a “Speuter Story” about the importance of spaying and neutering. The surgery is performed at the SNVC and underwritten by the Moore County Kennel Club. For information on the Speuter Story Contest, go to http://mcprc.org/kids-locker/speuter-contest/
The second program involves working with residents in the northern part of Moore County. They are advised and helped with the paperwork required for various programs that subsidize spaying and neutering. Transportation to and from the SNVC may also be provided. For more information, please visit their website at www.mcprc.org
Often the Companion Animal Clinic of the Sandhills Foundation is working hard to provide additional funding for those in need of assistance with spay/neuter surgeries. Since 2007, they have heavily subsidized over 80,000 surgeries performed at the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills. As grants are received for direct subsidy for spay/neuter surgeries, that information will be advertised here on our website!
