SNIPS is dedicated to reducing animal intake and euthanasia numbers by raising funds to provide low-cost spay/neuter services for Watauga and Ashe County pets.

The program is intended to help pet owners for whom the cost of spay/neuter surgery is a hardship.

However, all animals deserve our help; thus, no one is turned away.

In 2019, SNIPS specials funded surgeries for more than 700 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in Watauga and Ashe counties. Well over half of those surgeries were performed by our local veterinarian partners.

With your help, we'll reach 1000 animals in 2020!

Watauga Humane Society will not be sending out acknowledgements or tax receipts via postal mail during this time due to the rising concerns over COVID-19. Please provide your email address for an electronic version of the letter, otherwise all letters will be mailed when deemed appropriate to do so.
