Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP)
VSNIP helps lower-income Vermonters have their companion animals spayed or neutered. This includes dogs, cats, and wolf hybrids only.
Program Funds & Expenses
VSNIP is 100% funded by a $3.00 surcharge on annual dog licensing fees collected in Vermont. Because receipts vary from month to month, the number of surgical procedures we can fund each month also varies.
