Congratulations MN SNAP! SNIP Grantee 2019 10/10/2019 By Kate Mudge Pet Haven is excited to share that a 2019 SNIP grant was awarded to MN SNAP to support the 2019 Caring for the Animals clinic in the Little Earth community. The goal of Caring for the Animals is to reduce pet overpopulation and improve the health of cats and dogs living in the Little Earth community in Minneapolis. Spay and neuter surgeries will be provided in addition to flea and tick prevention, heartworm tests, vaccinations and general wellness exams. The Caring for the Animals project combines the talents of MN SNAP’s highly trained surgeons with experts from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in order to provide comprehensive care for the pets of a Minneapolis community in need. In addition, University of Minnesota veterinary students have the opportunity to work with diverse clients and practice their clinical skills while being overseen by University of Minnesota professors. MN SNAP’s mission is “to end the suffering and death of Minnesota cats and dogs due to overpopulation by providing both high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to those in need and animal welfare education in the communities we serve.” Since 2001, Pet Haven has provided more than $230,000 in grant funds to Minnesota-based animal welfare organizations throughout the state focused on reducing unwanted dogs and cats. We are grateful to contribute to this life-saving work and thank the many organizations that applied in 2019. If you’d like to support the SNIP fund please consider donating today!
