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.

SNAP does amazing work in Houston, providing low-cost spay/neuter services to a community who is suffering from a massive pet over-population crisis. SNAP uses funds effectively and efficiently and is so worthy of our support. Expansion of their services and expertise are key to stopping the cycle of over-population and high euthanasia rates in Houston. I am proud to support SNAP!

I have been a "client" of SNAP's wellness and surgical services for 10 years. I have taken not only my personal animal companions, but my fosters, and I have sent many friends to use SNAP's services as well. I remember on one occasion, I went to the wellness clinic with a little dog I was fostering...after she got her vaccines, the vet told me I could have her spayed for free as part of a specially funded project for rescues. As a student with very limited resources, this helped me tremendously! SNAP provides an important service to the entire community of humans and animals alike; low-cost access to medical care and the prevention of unwanted animal births. SNAP's services are not confined to a clinic. They take their mobile hospital into low-income neighborhoods to perform free pet sterilizations & Rabies vaccinations to further provide access to veterinary care.
