Spay/Neuter Assistance (SNAP) Program

The PAWS Spay/Neuter Program provides a range of services for people seeking help with spaying or neutering their animals or stray/feral animals they are caring for.

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinics

Our low-cost clinics are open to all Pennsylvania residents. We encourage Centre County residents to seek assistance using our voucher program, allowing more spaces for out of county animals. Clinics are announced on this website and our Facebook page.

SNAP Voucher Program

On January 1, 2014, our feral cat and non-feral cat vouchers were made available to Huntingdon County residents. All vouchers must be redeemed at a Centre County veterinarian's office or at the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic in Woodland. 

Our voucher program is designed to reduce the cost of managing a feral/stray colony or getting your cat/dog altered by providing you with a coupon that can be used at your vet's office at the time of surgery. Unlike the PAWS clinics, the voucher program is available around your schedule and is open to residents of Centre County, those who work or attend school full time in Centre County, and for non-feral cats and feral cats for residents of Huntingdon County. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide vouchers to other rescue organizations for use with their animals.

A maximum of 6 vouchers are available per calendar year for owned dogs and non-feral cats. There is not a limit on the number of feral vouchers available per year. However, these cats must have their ear tipped while sedated to easily identify them as altered. Feral cats are “wild” cats who cannot be easily touched, and therefore the sex may not be determined until sedated. They are most often cats who will be released outdoors after being spayed/neutered (though some participants work with socializing feral kittens and ultimately find them indoor homes).

We operate the voucher program on the "honor" system and ask people to only apply if they cannot otherwise afford the surgery so that we can help as many truly needy families as we can.

Vouchers can only be used at veterinarians in Centre County or the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic in Clearfield.

All Pets in State College and the Allegheny S/N Clinic in Woodland accept our vouchers as the full cost of a spay/neuter for all cats.  Clients are required to pay for flea treatment for any animal with a flea infestations and for a rabies vaccination at All Pets if your animal is not yet vaccinated per PA law. Rabies vaccinations are included within the surgical cost at the Allegheny S/N Clinic. Pre-operative bloodwork, vaccines, de-worming medication, etc. are available for additional charges at all clinics. You are encouraged to follow the veterinarian's suggested wellness plan in addition to having the spay/neuter procedure done.
