READ HERE FIRST! SNIP is designed to provide spay & neuter services to lower income families in Escambia and Santa Rosa County, Florida. SNIP services are available to bully breeds and other large breed dogs, owned cats, and FRIENDLY community cats. All community cats will be ear tipped.
**This is not a TNR program and feral cats taken to our partner vet will not be covered under the SNIP program. If our vet determines that a cat is in fact feral, you will be responsible for the full cost of the alter. Likewise, this service is not availble to rescue organizations or the fosters that fall under their umbrella.**
