Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (S.N.I.P.)

The Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (SNIP) provides qualified owners access to spay/neuter services for their household dog or cat at a significantly reduced cost. Services are performed at Lollypop Farm by appointment only. Our team of veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians, and assistants provide the highest level of care in our state-of-the-art Klingenstein Veterinary Clinic on the main campus in Fairport.

Lollypop Farm is currently accepting SNIP applications for cats and MALE dogs only. Our current wait time for cats is up to four months. Our current wait time for male dogs is highly variable but may be as long as five months. To submit a SNIP application for your cat or male dog, please click the appropriate button below.
