The Spay/Neuter Assistance Program of the Southern Tier, Inc. has partnered with Shelter Outreach Services (S.O.S.) to provide affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services for the companion animals in our community.
By surgically removing a pets reproductive organs, we can end the terrible problem of pet overpopulation. You show your concern for your pet and for all animals by having your dog or cat altered.
Thanks to the generosity of local donors, volunteers, and the efforts of our three community shelters Chemung County SPCA, Elmira Animal Shelter and Horseheads Animal Shelter, S.N.A.P. and S.O.S. offer low-cost spay and neutering services to pets of qualified low-income applicants. Each animal receives a physical examination, spay or neuter surgery under anesthetic, and, if needed, rabies and/or distemper vaccinations.
Pet overpopulation and animal homelessness is a community responsibility. Please help by spaying and neutering your pet!
To apply for the S.N.A.P./S.O.S. clinic, please follow these steps:
You must include the required supporting documents (of your pets vaccinations and your income). Missing information will delay the approval process.

Humane education continues to be an essential part of a child's instruction. Teaching young people kindness toward animals is an integral step in teaching compassion and respect for one another - studies have shown that children who learn these lessons mature into caring, empathetic adults.
