Project Overview

There’s no getting around it:  2020 was a terrible year.  Like many other nonprofits, SNAP suffered financially.  However, demand for our services remained unchanged as more pet owners in the Ozarks lost their jobs due to the pandemic. 

In a normal year, SNAP is heavily dependent on event-based fundraising such as ArtsFest and Cider Days.  No such events took place in 2020.  Since we are a small, all-volunteer organization, the loss of these events was significant.

With your help, we can “SNAP out of it” in 2021.  Your generous donations will allow us to continue providing services to clients such as D.J., who lost his job after a lengthy stay in the hospital.  D.J. heard about a family who lost their farm and could no longer care for their large dog.  He needed a canine companion in his life and wanted to help the dog and the family.  However, his resources were limited due to being unemployed.  SNAP helped D.J. by paying the full cost to neuter his new friend.  D.J. and his new buddy are doing well.

Thank you in advance for considering a donation to our organization.  If you’d like to find out more about SNAP, please visit our website at

About Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP stands for Spay Neuter Assistance Program, which is exactly what we do. We assist anyone who needs financial assistance to spay or neuter a pet.  Reducing pet overpopulation is the single most effective way to reduce euthanasia in our community’s animal shelters.

An all-volunteer organization, SNAP was formed in 2000.  Since then, we have helped finance over 23,000 spay/neuter surgeries. 

Using a network of veterinarians throughout southwest Missouri, we are able to procure surgery services at the lowest possible cost.  Since we are an all-volunteer organization, we have no salary expenses and almost no overhead.

We find pet owners who need our services through outreach efforts.  We also work with pet owners who have acquired large numbers of pets from strays or dumped animals.  We help young families just starting out, as well as senior citizens.  Pet owners who have used our program talk with their neighbors to encourage, and in many cases, pay for other pets who need to be fixed.
