One of the best ways to increase our life-saving efforts and reduce overpopulation of unexpected litters and homeless pets is through low-cost, high-volume sterilization efforts.

Located on the Alachua County Humane Society campus, Operation PetSnip offers high-quality, low-cost spay and neuter services for pets and community cats to anyone, regardless of income or location.

Operation Petsnip’s mission is to end euthanasia of healthy cats and dogs locally through increased sterilization and adoption programs, enhance the quality of life for pets and their owners through humane education, and foster collaboration between all area animal welfare groups.

All surgeries require an appointment. We strongly encourage pet owners to establish a relationship with a private veterinarian for the lifetime care of your pet.

Animals must be healthy, at least 8 weeks old and weigh at least 2 pounds. If your pet is a senior, please contact us for special pre-operative evaluation and instructions. Your pet’s safety is our primary concern. The veterinarian may decline surgery on any animal.

Since then, euthanasia rates have plummeted 90 percent. Read More.
