SNSI provides low-cost surgery certificates to limited-income individuals and free surgery certificates to 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare groups and municipal shelters, including Columbus Animal Care Services. A statewide network of veterinarians graciously discount their services for our clients, and SNSI pays the remaining cost.
