Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animals, Veterinary Services

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.

We have used SNAP to spay/neuter many strays around my office building to assist in keeping the cat population down in the area. The services they provide are invaluable to our Houston community!

Our small, all-volunteer non-profit has spay/neuter of community cats and stray dogs as its primary mission. I have taken hundreds of cats and many dogs to the SNAP clinic in San Antonio during the seven years of our organization's work. Always helpful and concerned about the welfare of the animals, the veterinary staff at SNAP has several times gone above and beyond the basics to provide services to cats I've brought in. I've also taken animals there for wellness exams. Both professional and support staff have provided excellent, caring service to animals most in need.

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 have been very impressed with the staff of this organization. They really care about the animals. They also do a great job of educating the public about spay-neuter.

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!
