With support from the City of Hendersonville and with support and collaboration from Henderson County, Blue Ridge Humane Society is able to offer low cost spay-neuter for dogs and cats in our new Spay-Neuter Incentive Program, or SNIP.

The services provided by the SNIP program will help further our mission and enrich the lives of animals and their owners. Pet owners must be residents of Henderson County in order to get their animals spayed or neutered through SNIP.

To complete the application process visit Henderson County Animal Services Center located at 828 Stoney Mountain Road. Contact 828-698-4481 or snip@blueridgehumane.org to get started. 

When making an appointment, pet owners must bring with them payment for the suugery as well as one of the following documents to verify residency:

• NC Driver’s License or ID Card
• Benefit Statement from Social Security
• Military Benefit Statement
• Real Estate Tax Statement
• SSA-Retirement, Survivors and Disability Income-Notice of Award letter
• Medicaid ID Card
• Bank Statement

Please Note: A document indicating a post office box within the County will not be adequate proof of residency.

At the Henderson County Animal Services, pet owners will be asked to fill out a quick survey and an admission form provided by Humane Alliance, a program of the ASPCA. Feel free to download the survey and bring the completed copy with you to Henderson County Animal Services when scheduling your appointment.

The $10 fee must be paid when the surgery appointment is made. This fee includes payment for the surgery as well as a rabies vaccination. These other services can be provided at an additional cost:

  • Surgery & Rabies – $10 (It is state law that your pet be up-to-date on the rabies vaccine. Unless you have proof of a current rabies vaccine, one will be administered at the time of surgery.)
  • Microchip – $15
  • Heartworm Test – $18
  • FeLV/FIV Test – $18
  • Kennel Cough – $10
  • Canine Distemper – $10
  • Feline Distemper – $10
  • Nail Trim – $5

On the day of the appointment, pets must be dropped off between 8:00 AM and 8:15 AM at the Henderson County Animal Services Center at 828 Stoney Mountain Road and picked up between 11:30 AM and 12:00 PM at the same location the following day.
