With what the founder and president says is a reduction in available grants and funding sources, the SNIP Alliance is disbanding. Utilizing the legal guidelines of the state, the Alliance is in the process of liquidating its assets and passing along any available monetary resources for spay/neuter services to other qualified non-profit organizations.

Eaves says she is concerned that without their spay/neuter services available to low-income pet owners, the pet population may skyrocket. She notes that those that rely on the pet food pantry will still have that option available, as the Metro East Humane Society will be taking over that service. Details on distribution dates will be available in about a month on the Metro East Humane Society website.
