Spay/Neuter Assistance Program
SNAP is one of only a handful of programs available in Contra Costa County that provides financial assistance to low-income county residents looking to have their companion dog or cat altered. SNAP also works with low-income feral caretakers in altering feral cats through the process of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
As CCHS does not operate a veterinary hospital, spay/neuter surgeries are performed at low-cost veterinary clinics throughout Contra Costa County. Each animal that is funded through CCHS's SNAP program costs CCHS an average of $52.00. This is an average cost and takes into account both spays and neuters for cats and dogs.
To qualify for assistance through SNAP, please call (925) 279-2247, ext. 305 to speak with a volunteer. Proof of income and a co-payment will be required to qualify.
