C-SNIP offers high-quality, reduced cost spay and neuter surgery for cats and dogs in the West Michigan area.

We are the only full-time nonprofit veterinary clinic dedicated to ending pet overpopulation, homelessness, and euthanasia of dogs and cats by focusing on spay and neuter surgery at a price pet owners can afford. Together, we can break the cycle of accidental and unwanted litters for nearly 11,000 companion animals each year.

Inclement Weather Notice:

C-SNIP values our human and pet clients and will make every effort to remain open during periods of inclement weather. However, the safety of our clients, their pets, our staff, and volunteers is of utmost concern to us. On rare occasions, C-SNIP may close its clinic when weather creates unsafe travel conditions. If C-SNIP closes due to weather, it will be televised on WOOD TV- Channel 8 and WZZM News-Channel 13. We will also post the closings on C-SNIP's Facebook page and make every attempt to contact those clients with scheduled appointments. If your cat had surgery on the day before the closing, cat release will be delayed from 7:30am to 10:00am. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause but we thank you for your business and support.

"I just had my kitten and my Heeler spayed yesterday and I’m so happy with everything. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They answered any questions I had and made me feel confident in my animals at home care. My dog's collar broke the morning of her drop off and they even helped me get another one so I didn’t have to go to the store. I’m so appreciative. Thank you!"
