SNAP a Photo!

Event in Recognition of Spay Neuter Awareness Month

In recognition of Spay Neuter Awareness Month, Nantucket Safe Harbor for Animals presents “SNAP (Spay/Neuter Ack Pets) a Photo! Valentine’s Photos with Charlotte Carey Photography,” at the Handlebar Cafe, 15 Washington Street, February 14, 11-1. Have your pooch professionally photographed, learn why spaying and neutering is so important, and enter to win a voucher for a free spay or neuter surgery for your dog or cat. Have a cup of great coffee and a treat for you and your dog.

This event is by donation and proceeds benefit NSHA’s Spay Neuter Island Pets Program (SNIPP), which awards financial assistance to Nantucketers looking to spay or neuter their pet. The SNIPP program is made possible by a grant from the M.S. Worthington Foundation.

“Sterilizing your pet is so important,” states Executive Director Jessica Sosebee. “Beyond offering many health benefits for the pet, it helps save lives. For every puppy or kitten born, hard choices must be made on a daily basis to euthanize those already waiting for homes in shelters all over the country. We hope to draw awareness to the financial assistance that exists for this sometimes costly surgery.” 

If you are interested in applying for SNIPP funding for your pet, contact Michelle Perkins, Operations Manager, at 508-825-2287.

The mission of Nantucket Safe Harbor for Animals, Inc. (NSHA), is to advocate for animal welfare and provide shelter and care for stray, homeless, unwanted or abandoned animals until they are adopted into responsible, lifelong homes.
