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 as part of our Spay-Neuter Incentive Program or SNIP.
Pet owners must be residents of Henderson County in order to get their animals spayed or neutered through SNIP. Our current wait time for SNIP clients is 3-4 months for cats and male dogs. We have a wait time of 4-5 months for female dogs.
We are limited by the number of appointments available and the high demand. Please check out the additional resources that offer low-cost spay-neuter services for pets in our area.
