S/Nipped's hard working board continues to push forward. We secured our clinic location today. Along with the clinic building we will also have full use of all medical equipment. Our next step is to inventory the equipment and check off the items the model requires us to have, making note of what we will still need to buy.
Please take a look at our wish list page for items needed to open the clinic. Please pass along our site to everyone.
Thank you Stacey, Raya, and Karla for all your hard work, time, and fantastic advise.
Thank you Dr. Powell for allowing us the opportunity to get the clinic up and running again, once again the clinic will help our community by making a better tomorrow for cats and dogs.

Every great goal has a date of completion to work toward. At our board meeting yesterday, we decided in honor of National Feral Cat day, our grand opening date would be October 16th, 2010. Again, this date all depends on how fast we can raise the needed funds to open the clinic and to be able to successfully walk through the Humane Alliance steps.
Community involvement and support will help make this date a reality. So please send everyone you know to the site, spread the word, and don't forget about the donations needed. All donations are tax deductable.

S/Nipped will be making a trip to Corvallis again. We will load the transport at 10 am on the 15th for the trip to Corvallis. The cost will be $30 per cat. While at the clinic, not only is the cat spayed/neutered but they also receive a 3 way distemper vaccination, rabies vaccine, frontline plus flea treatment, pain injection, ear mite treatment, and if necessary treatment for worms. A rabies vaccination at most clinics is $12 which doesn't include the office visit too, so to think the cats get all this for $30 is a great find. All cats are ear tipped at the clinic. An ear tip is a universal sign that the cat has been spayed/neutered. It could be the one and only thing that saves the cats life if it ever ends up in another trap or the shelter.

Good Morning all.
S/Nipped is ready to move forward fast on the low cost clinic. We will be submitting our application to the Humane Alliance as early as the beginning of next week. We have looked at a clinic location that I personally think is a fabulous space. So the next step is to raise the $120,000 to get the clinic opened. This number maybe a bit lower, however we will not know this until we get a complete inventory and send it to the Alliance for review of the needed supplies versus what we have one hand.
Ways you can donation to the clinic:
Our paypal donation button is current and active. You can find it on any of the S/Nipped website pages. It is a safe and secure way to send a donation. If you would like a tax receipt in the memo portion of your submittion please send us your name and address.
You can also send a check written to S/Nipped to 2675 11th St. North Bend, Or. 97459
Or you can stop by one of our fundraisers.
As we develop avenues for people to donate to the cause we will post them.
Of course how fast the clinic opens is directly connected to how fast we can raise the money and get started.
I want to thank everyone for their support. I look forward to a better tomorrow for our cats and dogs.

S/Nipped is in need of small and medium cat carriers in good working condition to transport cats to and from low cost clinics out of the area. We are also looking for a few large transport kennels for dogs, again to use while transporting out of the area. Once the clinic is up and going, these carriers will be used as part of the clinic transport.
We also need small litter boxes, 2 story cat condo cages, large wire rabbit cages, food/water dishes and towels.
S/Nipped can also use items such as Revolution, Advantage Multi, vaccinations, and Just Born Kitten Milk Replacer.
Please email us at [email protected] if you have any items to donate. A tax deductable receipt will be given upon request.
