Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program

A nonprofit organization

Every year, more than 1.5 million animals are euthanized in shelters in the United States, many of whom are healthy and adoptable. Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP) exists to end the suffering and death of cats and dogs in Minnesota due to pet overpopulation by providing high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to owned animals within low-income communities, animals within the 501(c)(3) rescue and shelter system, and feral cat populations.

MN SNAP’s mission is accomplished via a mobile surgery clinic that enables our teams of highly qualified veterinarians and veterinary technicians to perform on-site surgeries and core vaccinations for dogs, cats and rabbits. Surgeries not performed in the mobile clinic are performed at our stationary clinic in North Minneapolis. MN SNAP is conveniently located less than one mile from Minneapolis Animal Care & Control and operates three surgical teams. Between them, we offer 11 clinic days per week — seven on the mobile clinic and four at the stationary clinic  — and we complete 16,500 surgeries each year.

Since MN SNAP began offering services in April 2010, we’ve:

• Performed more than 194,311 sterilization surgeries throughout the state;

• Prevented the birth of more than 8 million unwanted pets, an estimate based only on MN SNAP’s female patients; and

• Traveled more than 400,000 miles across Minnesota to communities in need.

With your support, our spay/neuter efforts can continue to make an enormous difference in ending animal suffering and death simply because there aren’t enough good homes. You can help prevent thousands and thousands of unwanted cats and dogs from being born. And you can help keep Minnesota families together.
