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.

Vibrant, popular, versatile and memorable – That’s our Cranberry! 🌈😽 After several months at SNIPSA, she is still looking for a permanent home and we’re not sure why! She is truly the perfect kitty: Tolerant, docile, loving, peaceful, and just absolutely stunning to look at. In addition, she uses her litter box perfectly and promises to never shred your curtains! She is an uber chillaxed lady who is as happy roaming in your shadow as she is napping on the windowsill. 🐈 Cranberry’s easygoing personality mixes well with kids and other animals, too. She will let herself be picked up and carried without complaint, though she will definitely meow if she wants something. This beauty will make a superb companion to anyone. She’ll happily take on the role as your reading buddy, online shopping advisor, lap-based movie critic or even your office cat! 😜 Balance out your life with this fresh n’ fruity gal and apply to meet her!

Quick lil’ pupdate! 😇🫶 Alex, Dylan and Natalie are thriving after their tick treatment on Tuesday. All of their ticks have died and their skin is looking so much better already. These sisters will be adoptable in the near future, so keep an eye out! 👀

BLECHH… Ticks are gnarly, nasty little bugs. 🤢😡 This puppy and her two sisters were found with these critters covering every inch of their tiny bodies. We are starting their recovery journey by bathing them, tweezing off the larger ticks and dosing them with Nexguard. Here’s to a tomorrow that doesn’t SUCK! 🤪

There’s nothing like a hot cup of Jubilee to warm you up on a chilly day! 😄☕️ This adoptable doggo was named after one our favorite coffee spots, @jubileecoffeesa, which is just a short walk from the SNIPSA office. A few of our staff members are regulars here… So we drew a little inspiration! 🌞 Jubilee is an upbeat, well-mannered, five-year-old girl. She is believed to have once been someone’s pet as she can sit/shake, is wonderful on walks, and behaves perfectly indoors. 🐾 Learn more about this smiley pup at www.SNIPSA.org/Jubilee.

YEEHAW!! You best get your dancing shoes on, because with me you’ll be root tootin’ and boot scootin’ all night long! 🤠

The name’s Rowdy, and I sure do love havin’ a good time. I came to SNIPSA from the Ghetto Rescue FFoundation a couple months ago, but I just haven’t found my person yet. Folks think us cowboys have no manners, but I promise I’ll treat you right. I am potty trained, crate trained, leash trained and a friend to every person I meet. Sometimes, another dog will look at me sideways and I’ll have somethin’ to say about it, but I’m all talk. Alongside my rugged good looks, I’ve got plenty of smarts up in my noggin’. I can sit, stay, and know how to mind my manners around the house. I also won’t chew your shoes, but I can’t help myself when it comes to chasin’ cats! Being a Red Heeler mix, I am a workin’ man who enjoys havin’ a job to do. I would love a family with an active lifestyle that can include me in all of their activities. From singin’ along to the radio to joinin’ in on car rides, I am the best right hand man around. If you’re lookin’ for a southern gentleman, I could be the partner for you! Apply to meet me today!🐾🤍
