Millions of cats & dogs die each year due to overpopulation.  Millions are humanely euthanized at your overburdened local shelters.  However, millions of other cats & dogs die each year from starvation, exposure to the elements, disease, injury or human cruelty.


Companion animal overpopulation is not a problem that can resolve itself.  You cannot adopt your way out and you cannot humanely euthanize your way out.  The long-term spaying and neutering of the population is the key component of the solution.  This is why Spay-Neuter-Now exists and why we all need to work together!


Spay-Neuter-Now, Ltd. (SNN) is a 501(c)(3) (Tax ID 571182938) nonprofit grassroots organization dedicated to reducing the companion animal overpopulation in Northern New York State.  SNN programs include public & professional education and providing spay and neuter assistance to in-need animals, people and communities.


Please consider making a tax-deductable monetary donation.

The depth of the dent in overpopulation depends on your support!

Spay-Neuter-Now was founded in 1994 by Beatrice Schermerhorn (Hammond, NY). In 2004, SNN incorporated as

Spay-Neuter-Now, Ltd. and took the first Neuter Commuter mobile clinic on the road.  SNN retired and replaced the Neuter Commuter in 2008 with a brand new 27-foot custom built mobile surgical unit called the Neuter Commuter II.


Since October 1994, Spay-Neuter-Now has performed or aided in over 16,000 cat & dog spays & neuters in Northern New York. Our mobile clinic continues to be active primarily in St. Lawrence, Jefferson and Lewis Counties.
