VERMONT SPAY NEUTER INCENTIVE PROGRAM (VSNIP)
VSNIP reduces pet overpopulation by helping eligible Vermonters afford to have their dogs and cats spayed or neutered. The program is 100% funded by a surcharge on dog registrations so funds are limited.

Low-income families/persons can apply for funds to cover the spay/neuter of their dogs/cats. Click here for VT Spay Neuter Program (VNSIP) information and application. Letter from VT Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP).


Be advised that leash laws are in effect in Roxbury/East Roxbury. Dogs must be under the control of their owner(s) at all times. For safety and visibility, keep a safety-orange bandana around the dog’s neck, especially during hunting seasons.
