Enjoy a rewarding career helping Minnesota’s companion animals!
Every year, more than three million animals are euthanized in shelters in the United States, many of which are healthy and adoptable. Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program (MN SNAP) exists to end the suffering and death of companion animals in Minnesota due to pet overpopulation by providing high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to owned animals within low-income communities, animals within the rescue and shelter system, and feral cat communities. Since April 2010, MN SNAP has performed more than 65,000 surgeries, which will continue to reduce the influx of homeless pets into shelters and, over time, reduce the number of pets euthanized. MN SNAP works in partnership with its affiliate organization, Blue Sky Veterinary Services, to perform surgeries in a fully outfitted RV and through leased space within Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. MN SNAP recently acquired a facility in North Minneapolis that will soon become its permanent home in the Twin Cities.
