Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP)
VSNIP helps lower-income Vermonters afford to have their dogs, cats, and wolf hybrids spayed or neutered. The goal of the program is to reduce the population of unwanted companion animals.
Program Funds & Expenses
VSNIP is 100% funded by dog licensing fees collected by town and city offices from across the state. Receipts vary greatly from month to month depending on the number of dogs registered. This means the number of surgical procedures we can fund each month varies greatly. Click here to see the monthly receipts.
