Programs to help with Spay & Neuter
Beaufort County S.N.I.P.
The SNIP program is an income-based program designed to help those receiving public assistance or low-income households in Beaufort County with the surgery cost of spaying and neutering personal pets. Applications are available through the Beaufort County Animal Shelter, Dept. of Social Services and the Health Department. This program is not supported by taxpayers' dollars but you can offer support by purchasing Special Interest plates issued by the NC DMV.

Vaccinations are the responsibility of the pet owner. In most cases, this is the most cost effective option for pet owners (if you do not qualify for SNIP).
