Low Cost Spay & Neuter Vouchers Are Changing in 2021
To offer more efficient and convenient services while keeping our volunteers, staff and customers safe, we are implementing changes to our low-cost spay and neuter voucher program (SNIP) effective February 2021.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
SNIP stands for Spay & Neuter Initiative Program and the purpose of the program is to provide low-cost spay and neuter services to pet owners that find the cost of such procedures prohibitive. Concho Valley PAWS partners with participating vet clinics to offer the vouchers for a significantly reduced fee (see below for fee schedule). These vouchers cover the cost of surgery. Any additional services or care such as bloodwork, vaccinations or flea and tick treatment will be at the cost of the voucher holder.
The vouchers are valid as issued and may not be transferred or sold. The vouchers are valid until the last day of the following month and may not be extended or exchanged. The vouchers are only valid at the clinics listed on the document and Concho Valley PAWS will not be responsible for payment for spay or neuter surgeries scheduled with veterinarians NOT listed on the voucher. Vouchers may not be duplicated and are only valid when imprinted with the Concho Valley PAWS corporate seal.
Vouchers may not be used for females in heat. Rabies vaccinations are required by law. If your pet has been vaccinated against rabies, please bring verification. If it has not been vaccinated, the veterinarians may require the vaccination be given and charge you for that service.
PAWS does not endorse nor guarantee the services of any veterinarian participating in the program and PAWS is not responsible for any illness, injury or death as a result of the surgery or medical treatment of the pet by the independent, licensed veterinarians. Voucher holders are required to arrange for the spay or neuter appointment with the veterinarian of their choice form the list of participating vets. Upon arrival for the appointment, simply present the voucher as you would a gift certificate to the front desk staff. Failure to keep the appointment or failure to pick the put up after the surgery as directed could result in the veterinary clinic charging additional cancellation or late fees to the voucher holder. PAWS is not responsible for those fees.
Concho Valley PAWS reserves the right to deny services to any individual who does not conduct him or herself in an appropriate manner. If a voucher holder become hostile or belligerent with a volunteer, PAWS staff or anyone at the participating clinic, they will be disqualified from future voucher purchases.
Limit one voucher per household per month.
