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 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.

SNAP is a wonderful resource for dog and cat owners. I have had several animals dumped on my street and have been able to get the fixed at SNAP. Now they are healthy and have loving homes.

I would not be able to keep my cat without the help of SNAP. I was able to get her spayed and her shots for free. Since I got sick, my cat has been the best therapy.

I think SNAP is a wonderful program. Without it I wouldn't be able to care for my animals. Staff was caring and knowledgeable.

I came to SNAP-Houston because of financial reasons, but I love my pets. I was more than pleased with the front desk help, the techs, and doctors. My daughter's cat was neutered. He did wonderful. The surgery site was clean and post-operative instructions were very precise. Yet they want you to have a vet that can take care of accidents or illnesses. I will promote their services and use them again.

As a rescuer in Houston for years before SNAP opened, I am so appreciative of their services as well as their service level. This was especially important during the years I worked with retired racing greyhounds who have anesthesia sensitivities. They were excellent with them.Their phone number and website are imprinted on my brain to share with anyone with whom I come in contact with intact animals. Janet Huey

As a volunteer with a few animal welfare groups in Houston, I have to say SNAP is one of the better programs I've volunteered with! Their mission is a worthy one, and my experiences at their functions are always positive!

As a person who has been rescuing animals in the community for about 30 years now, SNAP has been an invaluable resource to me, as I have sought reasonable pricing and available service to spay, neuter and vaccinate all of these stray animals. That fact that you can drop in without an appointment is very helpful, especially in a pinch, when strays need vaccinations before they can go into boarding. The people are friendly and helpful, the facility is very clean, I love the vets there. They provide a valuable service to the community, especially with the low cost spaying and neutering and are trying very hard to get the word out about the critical need for spaying and neutering - the first step to no-kill is no-birth!
