SNIP (Spay/Neuter Island Pets) provides financial assistance to individuals who otherwise could not afford the cost of spaying and neutering their dogs and cats. Every month SNIP distributes the funds needed to cover the cost of veterinary bills in an effort to support our no-kill mission.

In October 2010, the first ever St. Thomas major sterilization event took place at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort utilizing the “Spay Waggin’” which was donated by the Animal Rescue League of Boston (pictured below). Over one week-end, a team of veterinary professionals successfully performed 104 surgeries.

SNIP’s affordable spay and neuter rates are offered at scheduled intervals by advance appointment. Donations of cages and towels are always appreciated for these events.

If you are interested in volunteering, scheduling a procedure, making a donation, or obtaining more information please contact us at: (340) 513-1854 or at
