Jacksonville to aid spay/neuter program

  • Comments

The City of Jacksonville announced Friday it has allotted funds to sponsor discounts for up to 200 “snip-it” tickets for residents of Calhoun County to aid in the effort to control the pet population, according to a press release. 

Begun in 2019 by the Calhoun County Commission, the “snip-it” program works with Alabama Spay/Neuter to subsidize the costs required to spay or neuter pets. 

The press release stated the city approved a $3,000 sponsorship and that vouchers would be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

“With the city’s $15 contribution included, a voucher for spaying is $47 for dogs and $27 for cats, and vouchers for neutering are $27 for dogs and $12 for cats,” the press release stated. “Vouchers can be purchased at the Calhoun County Commission office at 1702 Noble Street, in Anniston.” 

Residents who’d like to buy a ticket would need to show proof of residency at the time of purchase.

A full list of prices and more information on the vouchers can be found on the website.
