Spay Neuter Kingston Initiative’s mission is to facilitate ways to reduce and eventually eradicate pet overpopulation.
Pet overpopulation is a key factor of feral colonies in your community. Spaying and neutering your pets stops the cycle. To learn more about SNKI’s program with feral colonies click the links for our programs that include TNVR, Managed Colonies and don’t forget about our FAQ!
SNKI’s objective in their mission is to improve the welfare of cats and dogs in the Greater Kingston Area by:
- a. promoting and supporting the establishment and operation of a non-profit high volume spay and neuter service for dogs and cats using qualified veterinarian partners;
- b. implementing education programs to make the public aware of the problem of pet overpopulation, the benefits of spaying and neutering their pets, the procedure, and the availability of the spay-neuter service;
- c. assisting area animal shelters and rescue groups by providing reduced cost surgeries;
- d. promoting the return of lost pets to their owners by sponsoring microchip clinics and other events designed to improve pet identification and the chance of owner and stray animal being reunited;
- e. raising funds to spay and neuter the pets of low-income owners, based on the provincial standards of poverty;
- f. promoting and facilitating Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR) programs for managed feral cat colonies through the Region, including reduced costs on surgeries.
