Spay & Neuter Assistance Program

History of the SNAP Program
In 2005, we partnered with Barks R' Us Rescue and Pawsitive Alliance to provide a spay & neuter resource for low-income community members. The Spay & Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) evolved from this partnership and is still going strong today. The voucher program is available to all residents of Yakima County who meet the income guidelines.  Please refer to the Assistance Currently Available section below for the specific grant guidelines.

Please view the following table and compare your annual income and the number of family members in your household to determine if you qualify for assistance. If you income is at or below the number shown, you qualify!

Complete your application and bring it with you to the Yakima Humane Society. A co-pay is required at the time you receive your voucher - the amount of your co-pay depends on your annual household income and will be determined when you submit your application. The co-pay range is typically $5 - $40 for cats and $15 - $50 for dogs.
