The Department of Agriculture, in conjunction with Guam Animals in Need and the University of Guam, has organized a 7-day community spay & neuter event with visiting faculty veterinarians from the National Chung Hsing University in Taiwan.

The Spay & Neuter Island Pets community event will take place at the honorable Mayor Kevin J.T. Susuico’s Hågat Mayor’s Office. 

The event will operate from July 23 through July 26, July 29, July 31, and Aug. 1. The SNIP Clinic is scheduling 50 surgeries per day, for a total of 350 surgeries to be completed in the 7 working days.

Surgeries will be by appointment only and cost $50. 

Rabies vaccinations and Elizabethan collars, or cones, will also be available for an additional cost exclusively for surgery patients. Dogs and cats are welcome at this event and residents are encouraged to bring their own carrier for housing of their pet.  

Residents who receive SNAP benefits qualify for the SPPC Surgery Sponsorship Program to cover the cost of the surgery. Residents simply present their SNAP/EBT card, with ID for verification, at registration.

Members of the public who are interested in signing their pets up for surgery may do so at www.snipclinicguam.com.

Appointments must be made under the owner’s information. For assistance with appointment scheduling, please email [email protected], or call/Whatsapp 671-988-9421.

Those interested in volunteering may also sign up at www.snipclinicguam.com/volunteer. 

Volunteers should have a minimum of one day experience with SNIP prior to signing up for the community clinic.

We are thrilled to bring the Spay & Neuter Island Pets (SNIP) community event to the residents of Guam. This collaborative effort with the DOAG, GAIN, and UOG, along with our esteemed visiting veterinarians from the National Chung Hsing University in Taiwan, aims to address the critical need for spaying and neutering services on our island. By offering these services at an affordable cost and providing additional support for SNAP recipients, we hope to make a significant impact on the well-being of our community’s pets. We encourage all pet owners to take advantage of this opportunity and join us in promoting a healthier and safer environment for our beloved animals,” said Chelsa Muna,  Director of Guam Department of Agriculture.
