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!
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.
