Volunteers are the
Heartbeat of SNIPSA

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!

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.

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.

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.

Just like the white winged dove sings a song, sounds like she’s singing! I said ooh, ooh, ooh! 🎶

While we don’t have as many as seven wonders here, we do have one! Stevie and Nicks were a pair of heeler siblings that were brought over to SNIPSA from the Ghetto Rescue FFoundation (yes, with two f’s!). Now, that Nicks has found her home, only Stevie remains. This pups sure love to play, whether it’s with other dogs, toys or humans! He is just as sweet as he is playful. After a fun romp around, he is ready to cuddle up in your lap for a quick power nap. He has also finally mastered his potty training and leash manners! If this heeler mix sounds like the perfect pup for you then apply today! 💖🐾

Check out Roto’s new Holiday look! This sweet boy dropped in yesterday for a bandage change, so our vet tech, Tami, made sure he left in style! Roto came to SNIPSA with a fractured leg, but has since found his forever home. As he heals we will get to see this strong boy’s journey with his new family. ❤️‍🩹🐾

To our donors, adopters, fosters, volunteers and more - THANK YOU for showing up for SNIPSA yesterday! 😻 Together, we raised $4,290 - a huge chunk in our $10,000 goal. These funds will go directly towards rescuing, rehabilitating, rehoming and spaying/neutering cats and dogs in our community.

Our #GivingTuesday fundraiser is still open as we push to reach this goal. If you didn’t get a chance to contribute yet, please visit the link in our bio to donate. ❤️

Again, we are incredibly grateful for your tireless support, fundraising efforts and generous donations. Thanks to all of you, we push ONWARD to improve the homeless animal population in San Antonio!!
