Spay-Neuter Assistance Program, Inc.

Rating: 4.96 stars   47 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 70286 Houston TX 77270 USA

Mission: SNAP''s mission is to prevent the suffering and death of cats and dogs due to overpopulation and preventable diseases, especially in low-income areas.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 45,000 animals per yer
Geographic areas served: Houston and San Antonio
Programs: The first of its kind in the nation, this mobile clinic started in 1994 in Harris County, Texas, to take spay-neuter and rabies vaccination services directly into low-income neighborhoods, offering them free to indigent families on need-based public assistance programs. It helps about 5,000 cats and dogs annually. We have recently acquired a second mobile clinic for Houston that so far has only worked at the city shelter but which we want to use for special projects and backup for the original mobile clinic. The project has been funded to go into neighboring counties on special projects.

I have had numerous cats and dogs fixed through SNAP. I always took them to Houston on Shepard and Durham until I learned about the Mobil Clinic. The staff has always been very courteous to me and take very good care of my animals. You could not ask for a better organization.

I know SNAP (Spay Neuter Assistance Program) is making a difference when I drive down the street and DON'T see dead animals on the side of the road or animals roaming the streets homeless! 'No Birth Is The First Step To No Kill'! And when the city tells me that the no-kill rate is at 82%, which is significant! Good job everyone!

SNAP has helped so many animals and their families in our community. From offering QUALITY free spay/neuter surgeries and rabies shots to those who qualify...to low cost S/N and wellness services for the public. My furkids were spayed/neutered at SNAP and receive their annual checkups there every year.

I'm thankful that Houston, Pasadena and San Antonio residents can benefit from such a great organization! And I'm honored to be a member on the SNAP Board of Directors and a SNAP volunteer. I strive every day to help homeless animals and to make a difference.

SPAY + NEUTER. ALWAYS!

I've been volunteering for SNAP for years. It is a wonderful organization that helps prevent dog and cat overpopulation through spay/neuter surgeries. This also helps to lower the shelter euthanasia numbers. The services are free or low-cost. So many people are grateful this organization exists.

SNAP is cruicial in helping attack the pet overpopulation. So many animals enter the shelters in our community each year and lose their lives simply because there is no space for them. Every one euthanized is a soul lost. SNAP provides cost efficient vet care and promotes spay and neuter which is necessary in order to stop the cycle. I fully support this group by donating and volunteering as I think spay and neuter is the solution to end over population.

Houston has a serious pet overpopulation problem. Many animals are euthanized daily due to the number of animals in the shelters exceeding the number of adopters. SNAP makes an impact on those numbers by offering low cost, and in some cases free, spay and neuter services to the citizens of Houston. This organization is well respected in the community and is known throughout. Our hope is that we will eventually greatly lower the number births, meaning less animals turned in to our shelters and being euthanized simply due to space issues.
