S/Nipped is located at 132 N. Wasson St. Coos Bay, Or 97420, directly behind the Empire McKays grocery store.
S/Nipped provides low cost spay and neuter services and a few other ancillary services to the general public as well as transportation services to the clinic from area shelters. To date we have touched the lives of animals in more than 6 states and 14 counties.
S/Nipped is currently partnered with more than 15 nonprofit animal welfare organizations and shelters who receive spay and neuter services with special pricing, this helps those nonprofit organizations and shelters to conserve their budget and make a greater impact in their communities.
In addition, S/Nipped houses a small rescue that aids our county shelter in available space when needed for animal abuse and neglect cases, hoarding seizures and publicly abandoned or surrendered animals. Some of these animals come to the rescue in severe condition and medical treatment to save their lives is necessary. Other routine treatments include vaccinations, parasite control and disease prevention procedures.
The clinic is located in Coos Bay, Oregon and services most of the Southern Oregon Coast, the Willamette Valley and Northern California. A free transport system provides access to the clinic for animals in these outlying areas. The clinic works with the public, humane organizations, individuals, and municipalities throughout the region to provide low cost spay/neuter resources to shelters and rescues so all animals can be altered before adoption. We also work to promote the humane and ethical treatment of feral and stray cats through our Trap Neuter and Return program. This clinic employs an Oregon licensed veterinarian, certified vet tech, 2 veterinary assistants, office staff, and a director. Volunteers help to fill the other necessary positions. For a volunteer application please call 541-808-2377 or visit the clinic on one of our available open days.
Procedures, medical protocals, veterinary team training, and patient care standards are of the highest quality based on the recommendations and training of the Humane Alliance and the Association of Shelter Veterinarians Spay and Neuter Task Force. This model and their techniques are also supported by Allie Cat Allies, Best Friends Animal Society and the ASPCA.
The cost of the spay or neuter is alot less than the cost of having and caring for a litter including vaccinations, bedding/litter, and the hassle of clean up. Not to mention, do you know where all your pets offspring are? Over 6 million end up in shelters each year, they were the offspring of someones unaltered pet.
According to the Humane Society of the United States, 3-4 MILLION cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthenized each year. This also reduces the number of animals entering our shelter systems. HSUS also estimates that 6-8 MILLION cats and dogs enter the shelter system each year.
Spay and neuter is an act of love, for our pets, our community, and for millions of helpless, homeless animals. We hope that you would join us in ending the needless killing.
