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 dogs. Our current wait time for cats is up to three months. Our current wait time for dogs is up to six months. To submit a SNIP application for your pet, please read through the following qualifications and select the appropriate button below.



Please note: SNIP provides lower-cost routine spay and neuter surgeries to animals in good general health and is NOT a provider of emergency surgeries. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, please contact your full service veterinarian.
