Financial Assistance Programs
Thank you for being concerned about your pet’s health and the pet overpopulation problem in your area. There are several available financial assistance programs that are designed for those in financial need and are available to a limited number of applicants. See below for several of the available programs. If you have questions about which you qualify for let us know!
SNVC FIXX Fund:
SNVC raises funds through fundraisers and private donations that go into the “FIXX FUND.” This fund was created to assist clients on governmental financial assistance that live outside of Moore County. In order to qualify for the FIXX Fund, you must be on financial assistance, such as WIC, Food Stamps, Section 8 housing, or Medicaid, provide proof of the assistance and be approved prior to your appointment. The costs of surgery are greatly reduced under this program and details of the price you qualify for will be sent with your application approval.
Moore County SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program):
The SNAP program is designed specifically for Moore County residents whom receive government financial assistance such as; WIC, Food Stamps, Section 8 housing, or Medicaid. In order to qualify for SNAP you will need to provide proof of the assistance, be approved by SNVC prior to your appointment, be over 18 years of age and certify you live in Moore County NC. Please submit a separate application for each pet. The cost of surgery is subsidized by Moore County through a Statewide program to promote spaying and neutering. As a client, you are responsible for the $10 payment which will cover your Rabies vaccine if your Pet is not current on the vaccine and will be used as a deposit to schedule your appointment.

For either the FIXX or SNAP programs, if you are on a qualifying financial assistance you can fill out the application online, submit proof of assistance (Medicaid card, EBT card, WIC voucher) and pay the deposit by clicking the link below. You will need to submit a separate application for each pet. This is the fastest option and will allow us to schedule you for the first available appointment! If you are not able to pay the deposit online, fill out the application below and we will be in touch to get the deposit paid and schedule your appointment. Please note this will delay scheduling.
FIX’M Fund Assistance Program:
The Fix’M fund started in 2016 and funded by Moore County citizen donations. You may purchase a voucher at the Animal Center of Moore County if you qualify for the program. The Fix’m fund subsidizes the cost of your Pets spay or neuter and their Rabies vaccine. You must provide proof that you are a Moore County resident in order to apply for a voucher. Please contact the Animal Health Center of Moore County at 910-947-2858 for more information. Once you have a voucher in hand, you can give us a call to schedule your pet’s appointment.
Moore County Citizens’ Pet Responsibility Committee (PRC)
The PRC partners with the SNVC through two programs. As part of the PRC’s Pet Responsibility Program for fourth graders in Moore County, fourth graders can win a free spay or neuter for their pet or the pet of someone they know by writing a “Speuter Story” about the importance of spaying and neutering. The surgery is performed at the SNVC and underwritten by the Moore County Kennel Club. For information on the Speuter Story Contest, go to http://mcprc.org/kids-locker/speuter-contest/
The second program involves working with residents in the north of the county. They are advised and helped with the paperwork required for various programs that subsidize spaying and neutering. Transportation to and from the SNVC is also provided. This program is spearheaded by Robbins resident and veterinary technician, Kristen Seawell, who can be reached at 910-691-4391.
