Spay Neuter Assistance


The SNAP program is currently not available until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.

The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth provides spay/neuter surgeries for pets in low income households. These services are provided by our clinic at our Kitchener Waterloo Animal Centre.

Applying for the Program

  1.  Read through our animal eligibility requirements and our frequently asked questions page.
  2.  Complete the online application below or come into our centres to apply in person.
  3.  Pet owners are required to pre-register for the procedure, pre-pay, and bring their pet to the shelter early in the morning on the day of the surgery. Pets are ready to be picked up mid- afternoon and return home.

This service is intended for those currently living in the Cities of Stratford, Kitchener & Waterloo. For those living outside of those cities, please visit our Spay Neuter Clinic page for public services (no income or geography restriction) out of our Stratford Perth Animal Centre location.
