Spay & Neuter For A Better Future

Our Mission

SUN P.E.T.S. (Prevent Excess Through Sterilization) is an all volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing the dog and cat overpopulation problem in Snyder, Union, and Northumberland (S-U-N) counties.

We also work to educate the public on responsible pet ownership and other related topics.

Petsmart TNR Grant for Lower Northumberland County Received

​SUN P.E.T.S. is the recipient of a $15,000 grant from Petsmart Charities to be utilized in the Coal Region towns in southern Northumberland County for spaying/neutering and providing rabies vaccinations to outside, community, feral, free-roaming cats.

​This grant is to be utilized by volunteers who trap-neuter-return (TNR) outside cats in their neighborhoods or rural property to reduce the number of homeless cats in the towns of Shamokin, Coal Township, Uniontown, Ranshaw, Kulpmont, Mt. Carmel, Marion Heights, Natalie, Elysburg and the smaller villages in the Coal Region Area (a total of 17 zip code areas).

Honoring A Friend: The Dr. Murphy's "Spay A Stray" Fund

Dr. Matthew Murphy of Keystone Mobile Veterinary Services was the first veterinarian to collaborate with SUN P.E.T.S. to provide mobile spay, neuter, and vaccination clinics in our area on a routine schedule. Over the past two years, his day-long clinics, scheduled by SUN P.E.T.S. every other month provided low-cost services to scores of companion and free-roaming cats in the Susquehanna Valley.
