Benjamin K. Espy, DVM, DACT

Dr. Espy is an original founder of SNIPSA that received his DVM from Texas A&M University in 1996 and completed a residency in Theriogenology in 2002 from Hagyard Davidson McGee, Lexington, KY – the oldest equine veterinary hospital in the world.  He is now an ambulatory veterinarian in San Antonio and the surrounding area specializing in sports medicine and equine reproduction. He is also licensed to practice acupuncture and uses this form of alternative therapy to complement traditional western medicine.

Dr. Espy is active on many professional boards and currently serves as an animal care consultant for the PRCA, an editor for the Horse Magazine, reviews journal articles for the Educational Programs Committee, and serves on the Ethics and Grievance Committee for the Texas State Board. He has been the head veterinarian for San Antonio’s Stock Show and Rodeo for the past 22 years.

When not crawling underneath horses, Dr. Espy assists SNIPSA performing countless surgeries at their Big Fix clinics, helping with various medical procedures for wayward animals, and supports his wife of 26 years and their four children.

The big day is here… It’s #GivingTuesday!!! 🐶❤️🐱

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 with a vision; To encourage people to do good by giving back to their communities. The idea has since grown into a huge movement that inspires generosity across the globe! 🌎

In 2022, Giving Day is more important than ever. Our city shelters are facing overcrowding with an exorbitant number of unwanted pets despite rescues working even harder. And spay and neuter services are in higher demand than available partners are able to fulfill. Please extend a helping hand to SNIPSA as we work to rescue, rehabilitate, re-home, and promote responsible pet ownership into 2023. Click the link in our bio to GIVE. 🤲

We had a litter of all the back-to-school essentials in August, and Sharpie is one of the last two kiddos left over! Boy, is this guy anxious to find his forever home. This San Antonio special is snuggly, social, affectionate, playful and loyal. We don’t know his breed, but he is estimated to be large-sized when fully grown. As a puppy, he already has a huge heart, with so much love to offer any family! He has been great with kids and other pets so far, but he will benefit from continued training in his forever home. Don’t forget to tuck this pup into your backpack!🐶🎒

Helena and Muñeca…. The perfect duo! 👯‍♀️✨ These lovely ladies are just about as sweet as it gets. Surrendered together to Animal Care Services, these girls have not had the easiest of lives. Both former mamas, with signs of neglect, Helena and Muñeca have finally found a second chance at life.

During their first day at SNIPSA, they were very timid and refused to even walk on a leash. After just 24 hours, however, they were eager to take their morning stroll! Now, they are much more outgoing and affectionate, and can easily recognize a loving hand. 🤲❤️

Both girls would fit in well to just about any lifestyle. They are each extremely calm in nature and love nothing more than snuggling up next to you in a cozy blanket! Plus, they both ADORE kids! If you’re looking for your new winter cuddle buddy, apply to meet one of these young doggos. ❄️🤗
