Spay and Neuter Incentive Program

The Spay and Neuter Incentive Program (SNiP) is all about Mothers Day this year!

On Saturday, May 10, SNiP volunteers will be holding a very special Book and Bake sale giving you a chance to pick up some tasty baking to surprise mom with. This fun event will take place from 10 am to 2 pm at The Arts Station. There will be great books, delicious individual baked goods, and a TreatBay table. TreatBay, a play on words from eBay, is a table of desserts dishes to take home and enjoy with your family.  You will be able to bid on them or ‘buy it now’ for a slightly higher price (just like you can on ebay). Many of your favourite bakers and baking enthusiasts are creating wonderful desserts for this event, so stop by and check it out!

In the weeks leading up to Mothers Day, SNiP will have cards for sale at great local businesses around Fernie. These cards are available in two adorable designs; one featuring a dog and the other a cat. The cards will be available from April 25 to May 11 at Carosella, Frejya, Ghostrider Trading, and Barkside for a small donation of $3 each or two for $5. When you purchase a SNiP Mothers Day card you are giving a gift to your mom, but also helping local animals in need.

All of the money raised from the Book and Bake sale and the Mothers Day cards will go to SNiP. SNiP is a not for profit volunteer based initiative of the Fernie Pets Society. SNiP pays for spaying and neutering homeless cats in Fernie and subsidizes the cost of fixing domestic ones. Just one unspayed female, her mate, and their offspring can create over 11,000 cats in just five years.  Through spaying and neutering, the Fernie Pets Society hopes to reduce the number of stray cats in the area.
