SNAP (Spay/Neuter Assistance Programme)
Spay / Neuter Assistance Programme
Every year many thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens are born in Hong Kong, some of these litters are the result of accidental matings by pet dogs and cats.
To prevent this problem the SPCA advocates that all pet cats and dogs should be neutered (this also can have added health benefits).
The SPCA realises that in some cases there may be financial concerns such that whilst a pet owner may be willing to "de-sex" their pet they do not have the financial means to do so.
The SPCA can offer assistance with the "de-sexing" of pet cats and dogs in certain instances such as the owner is a recipient of Comprehensive Social Security Assistance or is referred by a Social Worker.
SNAP voucher scheme
This scheme aims to prevent the birth of unwanted offspring by encouraging the "desexing" of pet dogs and cats.
If you would like to "desex" your pet dog or cat but are unable to do so due to financial concerns then utilizing one of the SNAP vouchers may help.
