Twin Ports Spay/Neuter is the first spay/neuter clinic in the state of Minnesota to offer services to privately owned animals.  High Quality, low-cost spay/neuter services are provided to homeless shelter animals as well as to pets in households earning less than $40,000/year. The aim of the program is to dramatically reduce the number of animals in the region that become homeless, enter shelters, and subsequently have an independent, veterinarian-owned medical practice.

MnSNAP – Mobile Spay/Neuter Service


Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program’s fully equipped veterinary clinic on wheels delivers low-cost, high quality spay and neuter surgeries for animals belonging to shelters, rescues and low-income pet owners in Minnesota.  We reach pets in neigborhoods where cost, transportation, or the absence of veterinary services is an obstacle to obtaining animal health care and spay/neuter services. MnSNAP was created by a licensed veterinarian and a group of animal advocates with a goal of reducing the death and suffering of homeless animals all across Minnesota. There are other spay/neuter programs in Minnesota that are designed to help animal shelters and rescue organizations have their dogs and cats altered before adoption; however, until MnSNAP, there has not been any program for income-restricted Minnesotans to have affordable spay/neuter services come to them. Our mobile surgical unit travels to a pre-scheduled destination for the day.  Our staff admits each animal, collect fees, and performs pre-operative physical exams. During the day, all the patients will be cared for by MnSNAP’s highly-qualified, licensed veterinarian and her team of experienced and caring veterinary technicians: patients will be anesthetized and surgically sterilized using the most current anesthesia medication, equipment and surgical techniques.  All animals are discharged to their owners/caretakers or back to their rescues or shelters the same day.
