The Big Fix

Removing barriers for pet owners

What is it?

SNIPSA launched its Big Fix clinics in May 2009. With more than 100 animals being euthanized every day in San Antonio, 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. PetSmart Charities 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

SNIPSA kicked off the New Year with its 43rd Big Fix spaying and neutering 449 dogs and cats for the San Antonio community. Each time is different and we are faced with reorganizing our flow – where to separate the dogs from the cats, where to set up lunch, where to plug in our 6 autoclaves and 9 surgery lights, where to wash our surgery instruments, where to funnel the hundreds of pet owners standing in line, the logistics are endless.

This Big Fix was no different. We send a special thank you not only to the steadfast veterinarians, veterinary technicians, faithful volunteers, and staff but also to Harlandale ISD for partnering with SNIPSA to serve their neighborhoods. And a special thank you to the laundry leprechauns, lunch mamas, poop ferries, banner babes and beaus, City of San Antonio, and all the wonderful folks that stand behind our mission and make it possible. We CELEBRATE you for allowing SNIPSA to do its good works!

Meet our Rescue of the Week- Braveheart! 🐶❤️

I came from Karnes County to SNIPSA a few weeks ago and though I am a little shy at first and unsure of what lies ahead, I sure do have a big heart! I’m looking for a family that will provide the love, snuggles and security of being a beloved pet – something I have never had. I am confident that with time, my glowing personality will shine through! I am happy to be an only dog or willing to take on a new best friend. Cats don’t bother me and while children are new to me, they sure seem like a lot of fun! Give me a chance and I’ll be your best buddy for life!

Apply for me today and let me show you just how awesome I am! Apply at SNIPSA.org!
