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!
Pricing for those on financial assistance, such as food stamps or Medicaid, is available every day at the Sandhills Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic (SNVC). In order to receive the financial assistance pricing for your surgery, simply inform our staff when making your appointment of what assistance you are on. Prior to your appointment, or on the day of your appointment, you must bring your form of current financial assistance such as your Medicaid card, Food and Nutrition letter, or Housing assistance. WE MUST SEE PROOF OF THE CURRENT DATE OF YOUR ASSISTANCE. This may require a letter issued with valid effective dates. We can not accept Medicaid cards out of date (a year after issued) or only your EBT card. SSI and disability may be accepted with further evaluation, but may not meet the requirements for assistance pricing. Your appointment deposit DOES NOT COVER THE ENTIRE COST OF SURGERY. Remaining balance for your surgery appointment is due at check-in the morning of your surgery appointment. If you have any questions about what qualifies you, please call us at (910) 725-8188 or email us at email@example.com
The Fix’M fund started in 2016 and is funded by Moore County citizen donations. You may purchase a voucher at the Moore County Sheriffs Animal Services (Animal Control) office located in Carthage, NC, if you qualify for the program. The Fix’m fund subsidizes the cost of your Pets spay or neuter only. Owners are responsible for the cost of their pets Rabies vaccine if needed. You must provide proof that you are a Moore County resident in order to apply for a voucher. Please contact the Moore County Sheriff’s Animal Services office at 910-947-2858 for more information. Once you have a voucher in hand, you can give us a call to schedule your pet’s appointment. Sandhills SNVC does require a $25.00 appointment scheduling deposit for this voucher program. The scheduling deposit is refundable if you arrive on time, on your scheduled appointment date. Please note there is a merchant processing fee for transactions/refunds. The deposit is non-refundable if you cancel or reschedule with less than a seven (7) day notice before your appointment, or if you no show for that appointment. If you lose your first deposit, the deposit to reschedule or schedule another appointment will be $50.00.
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 Sandhills Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic (SNVC). As grants are received for direct subsidy for spay/neuter surgeries, that information will be advertised here on our website!
