Currently, the closest spay and neuter clinics offering reduced pricing and appointments are located nearly two hours away. Private Practice veterinarians are important for our communities as they offer general checkups and annual health services like routine dental cleanings, they can perform diagnostic testing such as X-rays and blood tests, and they are medically equipped to treat complex medical cases. With such a heavy load, it takes much longer to get an appointment and few openings are available for spay and neuter surgeries (higher expense).

SNIP WV plans to see 20-35 patients per day and will offer reduced rates for surgeries so that animals can be seen as soon as they are eligible for surgery to prevent “accidents.” If you bring your pet in for surgery but don’t have a regular veterinarian to monitor your pets health and ongoing care, we would advise you to find and establish a relationship with a veterinarian practice that is local to you. SNIP WV does not perform any other veterinary services at this time and we do not accept emergencies.
