The Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA Spay Neuter Assistance Program
Providing Low Cost Spay/Neuter Services to Chemung County and Surrounding Areas

The Spay/Neuter Assistance Program of Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA partners with Shelter Outreach Services to provide affordable spay/neuter and vaccination services for the companion animals in our region.

SNAP Low Cost Spay/Neuter clinics are intended for area residents facing financial challenges who cannot otherwise afford to have their pets spayed or neutered.

Veterinary services are provided by Shelter Outreach Services of Ithaca. Clinics are held at the Chemung County Humane Society & SPCA.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Both programs require applicants to provide supporting income documents to determine eligibility.

PROGRAM #1 - AFFORDABLE SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM (STANDARD PROGRAM PRICES) – This program is for people who are not receiving public assistance but who meet certain household income requirements. You do not need to be a resident of New York State to use this program.

If you qualify for this program, you will pay standard surgery fees along with the cost of vaccinations and any other costs that may be assessed at the attending veterinarian’s discretion.

PROGRAM #2 - SUBSIDIZED SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM ($10.00 SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM) – This program is for people whose TOTAL household income falls at or below the USDA Poverty Level. You MUST be a New York State resident to qualify for this program.
