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.

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.

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!

I have visited SNAP as a customer, seeking at cost spay-neuter and wellness services. I also make spare time to volunteer on behalf of this great organization. SNAP is focused on diligent management, caring and motivated staff, and devoted volunteers. It is a critical organization here in Houston, TX, where their motto "no birth is the first step to no kill" aims to eliminate euthanasia as a tactic to deal with pet overpopulation. Instead SNAP encourages locals to spay-neuter their pets and help curb overpopulation in an extremely humane and responsible way.

I first volunteered At SNAP for a Neuter Scooter event. That day we neutered 189 cats at our clinic. I computed the 1,000's of lives we saved that day. I knew that SNAP was the answer to our horrific overpopulation crisis. Since then, I have brought literally several 100 animals to SNAP to be neutered or for wellness services. SNAP offers the highest quality - greatest value spay-neuters in our area. Our vets and staff are some of the finest you will experience anywhere. I wish every city had a similar program. Pam H.

I have been involved with SNAP as a consumer, volunteer, donor, and former member of the board of directors for over a decade. SNAP is an excellent organization. It was the first group to have a mobile spay/neuter clinic. SNAP is innovative and very conscientious of how patients are cared for, and how funds are spent. SNAP is a very worthwhile charity that can be trusted to do the right thing for animals.
