Spay & Neuter: A Minneapolis Partnership
Minneapolis Animal Care & Control is proud to announce an exciting partnership with Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MNSNAP). In 2012, MACC and MNSNAP began a partnership whereby MNSNAP operated out of our building. On May 28, 2013, all dogs, cats and rabbits are now spayed or neutered before they leave the animal shelter. Through this new public-private partnership, MNSNAP will schedule surgeries for low income pet owners Tuesdays through Friday in hopes of further addressing the severe overpopulation of pets in our city.
Do you live in North Minneapolis (Ward 4 or 5)? You are eligible for a FREE SPAY / NEUTER services (pdf) for your pet.
MNSNAP provides low-cost spay / neuter services for low-income pet owners. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact MNSNAP. Pet Owners MUST register. Learn more about Free Spay/Neuter Services for Ward 5 (pdf)
Why is it so important?
Between six and eight million cats and dogs enter our nation's shelter system each year. Animal Shelters cannot save or support this huge number of accidental litters, strays and offspring of family pets. As a result, nearly four million animals are humanely euthanized annually. It is estimated that 90,000 dogs and cats are humanely euthanized each year in Minnesota due to overpopulation. Spaying and neutering is the only 100 percent proven way to reduce these numbers and save animal's lives.
What can I do?
- Schedule an appointment to get your own pets altered
- Talk to your friends, family or neighbors about the importance of spay/neuter
- Make a donation to help a friend or a strange pay for their pet's surgery
