What We Do

S N A P Spay Neuter Aid Program (dba Contented Critters) is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit (EIN: 41-1835418, License: MN140872) no-kill animal sanctuary located in Makinen, Minnesota.

The mission of S N A P Spay Neuter Aid Program is to advocate for and help pets in need through rescue, no-kill sheltering, rehabilitation, appropriate veterinary care, and adoption.

Our vision is to reduce the community need for pet rescue through preemptive measures, such as a spay and neuter program for pets in our care, and community outreach and education.

The majority of the animals that come through our doors are dogs and cats. Many of these animals are found abandoned, some have been rescued from bad situations, and some were simply dropped off by owners who can no longer care for them. Regardless of breed, age or situation, we provide these animals with appropriate veterinary care and keep them happy and healthy until suitable, loving homes can be found for them.

No cat or dog leaves Contented Critters without being spayed or neutered.
