A GoFundMe has started to raise funds for the SNIP Bus (Spay Neuter Imperative Project) in Aromas.
According to the campaign organizer:
SNIP has saved thousands of unwanted animals from being born and have spayed and neutered over 11,000 dogs and cats since it formed. SNIP Bus is a mobile spay and neuter clinic.
According to the GoFundMe campaign, SNIP bus will be at the Aromas Grange until Oct. 20, while Neighbors Helping Neighbors-Aromas will be matching all donations made to this GoFundMe campaign up to $1,250.
The campaign can be found through this link: https://www.gofundme.com/NHNSNIPBus.
The GoFundMe campaign page description reads as follows:
If you live anywhere near Monterey County or the Central Valley in California, you may have heard of the SNIP Bus . This is a crack team of Vets and Techs who do low-cost mobile spay and neuter services locally.
The great news is that they’re bringing the SNIP Bus to the Aromas Grange on October 18th and 19th!
The only-slightly-less-great-news is that it costs quite a bit to outfit the Bus(es) and provide the equipment and medications for top-notch care. The cost is over $2500 a day.
Now, the whole point of the program is to keep services accessible for those kind (and smart!) souls who want to keep their pets and local ferals from adding to the overpopulation problem.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors-Aromas would like to support these efforts, with your help!
We’ve decided that, from August 1st until October 20, we are going to match all donations posted through this campaign up to $1250.
Basically, we’re covering half a day and looking for YOU to help out, too!
Of course, if we raise more than is needed for this particular weekend, all additional funds will go to the SNIP Bus for future events.
You can donate here at gofundme, or send a check to: NHN, P.O. Box 126, Aromas CA, 95004 (please note on the check that this donation is for the SNIP Bus).
Thank you and we look forward to a great campaign!
The cost to the client/patient is $25 for a pet under 40 pounds, and $75 for a larger dog over that. They also offer micro-chipping and rabies shots.
