Our clinic support volunteers are crucial to the operation of MN SNAP mobile clinics! We could not do what we do without the dedication of passionate animal lovers that back-up our veterinary staff. Our clinics are held multiple times a month in partnership with the St. Cloud-based rescue organization, Grey Face Rescue and Retirement.

The clinic shifts are available between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on the date of each clinic. Duration of shifts are full day (9am-4pm) or half day (9am-Noon or Noon-4pm).

The basic outline of the position includes, but not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • Help set up for the day (AM shift).
  • Assist with check-in if needed.
  • Clean and dry equipment and instruments coming from the surgery area.
  • Reassemble surgery packs according to directions provided.
  • Assist technicians with miscellaneous tasks as needed.
  • Take dogs out, clean kennels-if necessary.
  • Help clean up at the end of the day (PM shift).
All volunteers are required to sign waivers in agreement with MN SNAP policies. Training is provided via written material, video demos, and onsite support. Masks are required and social distancing is encouraged.

About MN Spay Neuter Assistance Program

Location:

2822 N Washington Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55411, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to end the suffering and death of Minnesota cats and dogs due to overpopulation by providing both high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to those in need, and animal welfare education in the communities we serve. MN SNAP’s mission is simple and effective in reducing pet overpopulation. Our work reduces the influx of homeless pets into rescues and shelters, preventing suffering and death. Our vision is also simple: no cats or dogs suffer or are needlessly euthanized due to pet overpopulation in Minnesota. MN SNAP has completed more than 145,099 low-cost surgeries since April 2010. Using conservative litter estimates for the female pets we’ve sterilized, MN SNAP’s work has prevented the birth of more than 5 million unwanted cats and dogs!

Description

Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program Professional Corporation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay and neuter services to owned animals within underserved and low-income communities, animals within the rescue and shelter system, and feral cat communities. We reach pets in neighborhoods where cost, transportation or the absence of veterinary services is an obstacle to obtaining spay and neuter services.

MN SNAP was founded by Kim Culbertson, DVM, and a group of animal advocates with the goal of reducing the death and suffering of homeless animals across Minnesota. MN SNAP staff works in a surgically outfitted RV and at its headquarters clinic in North Minneapolis.
