About Our Shelter:

Central New York's Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (CNY SNAP) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping curb pet overpopulation by offering low-cost spay and neutering services. Our mission is to make a difference in our community by reducing the overpopulation of cats and dogs in the Central New York area.

The clinics are held in conjunction with SOS (Shelter Outreach Services) who provide the veterinary resources necessary. For more information about SOS and their services please visit: .

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
