Spay/Neuter Assistance Program

The need-based Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) was created several years ago in an effort to provide the low-income public with an affordable way of spaying and neutering their animals, and thus preventing unwanted litters. In 2011, 340 owned dogs and 170 owned cats were spayed/neutered through this program.

OLHS partners with the Animal Clinic of Oxford and Crossroads Animal Hospital to provide these services to the public. We are able to spay/neuter animals Monday through Friday (no holidays). If you are low-income and need assistance spaying/neutering your animal, please call the shelter at (662) 236-7631 to make an appointment. Once an appointment is made, your animal(s) will need to be dropped off at the shelter at 8:00 AM the morning of surgery, and picked up between 4:30 and 5:00 PM the same day. Please do not feed your animal(s) after midnight before surgery, although he/she can still have water.

 Effective June 7, 2016, all cost for spay/neuter fees must be paid by cash, debit or credit card.  We will no longer accept personal checks.  Thank you!
