OK-SNIP has moved!
At the end of December 2014, OK-SNIP moved to 4 Spring Coulee Road in Okanogan next to Animal Foster Care Cat Shelter.
The reason for the move is that we no longer have a veterinarian qualified to perform high volume, high quality spay and neuter surgeries who can come to our clinic. Until we can raise the funds to attract a veterinarian with full time employment, we can’t afford to maintain the overhead costs in the building we are renting. We will be storing our $32,000 worth of spay/neuter equipment in the meantime.
Our phone number will remain the same, 509-422-9960. All surgeries are by appointment only.
Accomplishments From 2009 through 2014
- We have fixed a total of 4,000 animals to date, preventing thousands of unwanted births.
- We were able to offer affordable vaccines to the cats and dogs of our low income clients.
- We funded exams, medications and procedures needed by feral cats and AFC cats at full service veterinary clinics.
- We have sterilized, maintained and monitored hundreds of feral cat colonies throughout Okanogan County through our free Trap/Neuter/Return Program with the help of volunteer caretakers. The shelters, feeding stations and food expenses are all donated by our volunteers.
- We have collaborated with AFC to re-home stray tame cats and socialize feral kittens removed from feral cat colonies.
We have collaborated with AFC to offer our Mom’s Last Litter Program in which we fix the moms and dads for free and AFC takes the kittens into their Kitten Adoption Program. OK-SNIP fixes the kittens or they are altered at partner rescues in the Puget Sound Area prior to adoption.
Washingtons’ Specialty Plates
Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control worked long and hard so that cats and dogs can benefit from the sale of the specialty license plate, We Love Our Pets. All proceeds go to fund Spay and Neuter grants for non-profits. OK-SNIP can apply once a year for on of these grants.
