Spay-neuter program donation

Employees of the Gallipolis Hampton Inn recently donated $250 to the Spay Neuter Assistance Program of Gallia County. SNAP is a local non-profit organization that provides qualifying pet owners access to low-cost spaying and neutering of cats and dogs. It is made possible by French Town Veterinary Clinic and Riverbend Animal Clinic in Gallipolis. Pet owners pay for a portion of the cost, depending upon their income. SNAP is a 501c3 charitable organization and was established in September 2010. Since that time, 232 dogs and 1,538 cats have been sterilized through the program. Most of the cats are strays or feral, and volunteers humanely trap the cats and transport them to the veterinarians.
