Snip spay/neuter incentive program offered by society

KINGMAN - The Western Arizona Humane Society is introducing "The Big Fix" Spay Neuter Incentive Program to help combat the problem of pet overpopulation.

"The SNIP Program is modeled after our very successful program that we offer to income eligible residents in Lake Havasu City to provide low cost spay/neuter," said WAHS executive director Victoria Cowper. "In addition, all surgeries will include vaccinations."

Income eligible residents may apply for the program at the shelter, 950 Buchanan St., where SNIP volunteer counselors are available from 8-10 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Costs will vary based on available grant funding from the Pet Friendly License Plate Companion Animal Spay/Neuter Committee and applicant's need. The program is also funded through individual and business donations.

In honor of Adopt A Cat month in June, WAHS will also offer the first 100 male cats that qualify a discounted neuter at $25, including vaccinations.

"Spay/neuter protects pet health, improves pet behavior, and lessens the burdens on animal shelters and taxpayers," Cowper said.
