Veterinarians and Caring Individuals

SNIPSA is an organization formed by a group of veterinarians and caring individuals dedicated to helping homeless and unwanted animals in San Antonio and the surrounding area. SNIPSA does not have a standing shelter and depends on a core group of volunteers to foster and rehabilitate animals in their homes. This provides us with the opportunity to learn first hand about the animal’s needs and behavior in order to facilitate an appropriate adoption. SNIPSA was incorporated in 2006 and has re-homed more than 19,000 animals.

The majority of the animals we help originate from high kill shelters. San Antonio impounds more than 27,000 animals a year, approximately 74 dogs and cats per day. Another 20,000 carcasses are picked up on city streets. SNIPSA makes weekly trips to area shelters to remove animals whose “time is up”. Many of these animals suffer from heartworm infection, fractures, mange, neglect, and have been used to breed year after year.

Necessary Medical Care

SNIPSA provides necessary medical care to get the rescues back on their feet again. This can often be a lengthy process of rehabilitation. We are committed to going the extra mile to ensure an animal’s health.

While we know we can’t adopt our way out of this problem, SNIPSA has set out to address the overpopulation problem in San Antonio too. By offering free spay/neuter services to underserved areas of this city, we’re able to target neighborhoods where we’ll have a definite impact. Several times a year, SNIPSA holds Big Fix clinics. These MASH style operations provide sterilization, vaccinations, and microchipping to over 500 cats and dogs in a single day.

Community Centers

Community centers are transformed into surgical suites, and countless veterinarians, staff, and volunteers come together to change our community. By preventing the birth of additional unwanted litters, we’re not only saving the city taxpayers thousands of dollars, but we’re providing our companion animals with a better life of health and wellness. SNIPSA has provided over 19,500 spay/neuter surgeries to date, and we’re not stopping!
