Why Volunteer?

Our SNIPSA volunteers dedicate their time giving to the animals in the community because they believe in what we do.  Each year, we rescue over 1000 animals from dire situations off the streets and from local animal shelters.  We spay/neuter, vaccinate, and microchip 1500 animals residing in low income areas of town that would otherwise continue to reproduce and contribute to San Antonio’s huge stray population.  We do all of this because of YOU, our volunteers, and we can always use more hands on deck!


Our adoption events are fast-paced and fun! We need an average of 10-20 volunteers per event. Most events are scheduled on the weekends.

Canine Crew

We need help taking care of the dogs at our office during the week! You’ll help walk the dogs, clean out crates, and set them up for their stay.

General support

We need help in our office during the week! Our needs vary, so the ability to “go with the flow” is required! This may include organizing, cleaning, and filing.

Youth Volunteering

Ages 14-15

We always want to be supportive of kids with a giving heart. We have a few volunteer opportunities for children, but ask that both the child and parent/legal guardian complete a volunteer profile. The parent or guardian must accompany the child at all times.

under 14 years old

We recognize that children under 14 years also want to be philanthropic and that not all parents may have the ability to volunteer with their children. As a result, we’ve created a few activities that kids can do at home or school to contribute to SNIPSA and earn volunteer hours.

Group Volunteer Program

Our group volunteering opportunities allow for corporate or organizational groups to assist with events for SNIPSA. Volunteer groups are typically groups of 10-15 people that volunteer for 2-hour shifts or longer. Volunteer groups operate on a first come, first serve basis, and fill up quickly.
