Precautionary Measures During COVID-19

SNAP supporters and clients,

The Spay-Neuter Assistance Program is committed to the wellbeing of our patients, our pet parents, our supporters, and our team members. SNAP is remaining operational at this time so that we can continue to serve the community and support the human-animal bond.

In order to provide a safe environment for our clients, SNAP will be adhering to the following precautionary measures:

  • SNAP team members have already increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch surfaces throughout our clinic facilities.
  • SNAP team members have been instructed on CDC guidelines and will be following them closely.
    – Team members who feel ill are instructed to stay home and consult health care providers.
    – Team members have been instructed to be vigilant about thorough and frequent hand washing.
    – Team members have been instructed to cover all coughs and sneezes.

We ask that our pet parents help us make our intake, wellness, and discharge exchanges as safe as possible for everyone involved.

For surgery drop off and discharge, a SNAP team member will have the surgery sign-in sheet either outside the clinic or just inside the front door. Clients are asked to wait in their cars until a SNAP team member is ready to do the intake or discharge process for your pet. Please be patient while we complete the intake process.

For wellness, a SNAP team member will have the sign-in sheet either outside the clinic or just inside the front door. –Clients are asked to wait in their car until it is their turn for wellness. Clients are asked to be patient while we complete the wellness process which may involve allowing your pet to be seen by our veterinarian in our exam room while you wait in your car.

Stay well,

Dr. Mary Kate Lawler, Executive Director and Surgeon
Spay-Neuter Assistance Program
