CSNIP prevents pet overpopulation and improves the quality of life for dogs, cats, and their caregivers with accessible, high-quality, reduced-cost veterinary care. Founded in 2001, CSNIP has spayed/neutered more than 220,000 dogs and cats in West Michigan and helps over 20,000 pets annually through its various programs. CSNIP’s programs aim to create a world in which all dogs and cats are healthy, happy, and in loving homes.
A grant from Grey Muzzle will enable CSNIP to provide subsidies to offset the cost of care for senior dogs like Dallas. Thirteen-year-old Dallas was adopted as a puppy from the Capital Area Humane Society in Lansing, MI. His mom brought him to the CSNIP Community Well Pet Clinic in March 2023 to check his teeth. She knew he needed dental care but could not afford the cost at a full-service vet clinic. The CSNIP team updated Dallas’ vaccinations, provided flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives, and did pre-anesthetic bloodwork. Because of generous support from Grey Muzzle, CSNIP could cover half the cost of removing 12 of Dallas’ teeth, with his mom paying the balance. Dallas feels much better and remains at home with the family who loves him.
