A Better Way
SNIPSA set out to build partners in the community. Partners that included churches and community centers right in the heart of the neighborhoods where the largest number of stray and unwanted animals roamed the streets; the same streets that animal control officers frequented and impounded thousands of unwanted dogs and cats. It was in these zip codes that SNIPSA focused its Big Fix clinics.
To-date we have sterilized over 19,500 dogs and cats in 50 Big Fix clinics. What started as spaying and neutering just over 100 animals at our first Big Fix has evolved into sterilizing up to 489 in one long but amazing event.
It costs roughly $15,000 to host a Big Fix. It is well worth the investment when you consider it costs taxpayers upwards of $350 to impound, house, and ultimately euthanize a single animal at our city shelter. SNIPSA has definitely tapped into a well received yet under-utilized service for animals in our community.
