C-SNIP prevents pet overpopulation and improves the quality of life for dogs, cats, and their caregivers by providing accessible, high-quality, reduced-cost veterinary care. Founded in 2001, CSNIP has spayed/neutered more than 210,000 dogs and cats in western Michigan. Their programs are designed to create a world in which all dogs and cats are healthy, happy, and in loving homes.
A grant from Grey Muzzle will enable C-SNIP to provide subsidies to offset the cost of dental care for senior dogs like Shadow. Shadow became a patient at C-SNIP’s Community Well Pet Clinic when her human, Della, could no longer afford her full-service veterinarian. C-SNIP vets diagnosed Shadow with severe dental disease. Della could cover the cost of Shadow’s initial dental appointments that included x-rays, cleaning, and polishing, but she simply couldn’t afford the extractions her beloved Shadow needed. The Grey Muzzle grant will ensure Shadow–and even more dogs just like her—get the dental care needed to be healthy and pain-free.
