Central New York’s Spay/Neuter Assistance Program


Central New York’s Spay Neuter Assistance Program (CNY SNAP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization dedicated to offering low-cost spay/neuter services and rescuing and finding homes for cats and kittens through our Cortland shelter and partnership with PetSmart in DeWitt.

We are funded entirely by grants, adoptions, and donations. Our mission is to make a difference in our community by ending the overpopulation of cats and dogs in Central New York.

Our success depends on your contributions and assistance! Explore our website to find ways to get involved and please spay and neuter your pets!


CNY SNAP’s Annual Holiday Campaign

Since 2005, with the generous support of donors like you, CNY SNAP has been dedicated to offering shelter, affordable spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and life-saving medical care to cats and dogs facing dire circumstances and who often have no one else to help them.

In the year 2023 alone, we have supported more than 3,000 community animals through our clinics, and found loving forever homes for over 400 cats and kittens.

To continue providing these critical services, we rely on support from the community and caring donors like you. Operating as a dedicated 501(c)3, all-volunteer organization, every contribution goes directly to helping companion animals in need. Join us in continuing this important work by contributing to our holiday campaign.
