What is it?

SNIPSA launched its Big Fix clinics in May 2009. With a significant number of animals being euthanized every day in the San Antonio area, we knew there had to be a better way. How could we target the pet-owning population and bring spay/neuter to one’s doorstep? We found that people were generally receptive to doing the “right thing”; we just needed to make it convenient and doable. Providing this service for FREE was also important to remove any barriers that might dissuade a pet owner from having his pet spayed/neutered. The more sterilized pets in our city, the less entering the doors of our shelters. It was simple.

Furthering Our Cause

SNIPSA depends on grants and private donations to host its Big Fix clinics. Amy Shelton McNutt, City of San Antonio and The San Antonio Area Foundation have been critical in helping SNIPSA purchase medical equipment and necessary supplies for our MASH style operations. However, their support is not inclusive in keeping our Big Fix clinics running.

We appreciate all the support we’ve received from our local community. Your donations are driving the change in San Antonio and helping us continue onward to a No-Kill city.

Big Fixin’ Into 2021

To-date we have sterilized over 19,500 dogs and cats in 60 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.

Take a peek at our photo gallery to get a bird’s eye view into SNIPSA’s work. It was truly an amazing gathering of like minded individuals giving their 100% to save homeless animals!
