  • 1. A Great Help

    by: WickedPineapple

    This program helped a nice lady I work with get three strays that she's taking care of all fixed. She was going to get them fixed anyway (even though she doesn't have the money!). Not only did she get coupons to get them fixed, but she also got coupons for their rabies shots! It's great that this program is here to help people with low incomes help animals.

    Pros

    helps people with low incomes

    Cons

    none

  • 2. This is a great program

    by: hahna

    There are so many people who can't afford the cost of neutering or spaying and yet still want to own a pet. This is a great solution. Until these animals consistently are neutered the problem of unwanted pets will not end.

    Pros

    The only way to solve the problem

    Cons

    none

  • 3. Great help for those who need assistance to spay/neuter

    by: sdelone

    The MCHA SNAP program removes financial barriers that might keep people from spaying or neutering their pets. For those individuals who meet income guidelines, SNAP vouchers can bring the cost of a spay/neuter surgery down to just $15 at some clinics.\r\n\r\nAt the end of February, vouchers can be purchased for just $5 to cover the entire cost of surgery. You can't get much better than that.\r\n\r\nClients may request up to 5 vouchers/year, and have between 1 and 3 months to use them.\r\n

    Pros

    easy to use, very helpful staff

    Cons

    only available for lower income individuals

  • 4. Great Service

    by: nalee1964

    This is a great service to all residents of Monroe County as long as they meet the income requirements. It goes a long way to help reduce the number of litters taken in at the shelter. I just wish more people would take advantage of this, and NOT let their pets breed!

    Pros

    Helping to prevent unwanted litters all over Monroe County!

    Cons

    Must meet income requrements - limit of 5 per household per year

  • 5. Great program!

    by: stormyknight

    Providing spay/neuter assistance for low-income households in Monroe County is the perfect solution to our pet overpopulation. This program allows those owners who want to be responsible, but lack the funds to do so, a chance to get their animals fixed at a very low cost or even free of charge. The shelter gets too many litters of both puppies and kittens from accidental breedings, many of which occurred because the owners could not afford to get their animals fixed. This program stops the problem before it starts and has saved the lives of thousands of animals that would have otherwise ended up in shelters.

    Pros

    everything

    Cons

  • 6. SNAP to It!

    by: eknudson

    SNAP is heaven-sent for this area. Actually, not heaven sent, because extraordinary human beings are responsible for the program. But perhaps they are angels in disguise. The CENTRAL, most pressing problem regarding animal welfare and overpopulation in this area is a lack of spay-neuter awareness, and SNAP is doing an amazing job of getting people with difficult socioeconomic situations the help they need to be responsible pet companions and get those dogs and cats fixed! This program is so vitally important, and the MCHA is doing a fantastic job of promoting it to the people (and their animals) who need it the most. I am a big advocate of pit bulls and I despair when I see litter after litter advertised for free in the newspaper, because I know that many of them are destined for a terrible fate or to end up at the shelter. It's programs like SNAP that save dogs who are indiscriminately bred until they are worn out, and the puppies who end up in terrible homes or who end up being abandoned. Bravo to the MCHA and SNAP for making a big difference.

    Pros

    Effectively addresses the huge spay/neuter problem in south central Indiana

    Cons

    Only wish there was more money so that more people could get vouchers.
