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.

Watch Episode 1 - "CeCe's Cystotomy" on our new IGTV medical series.

We all take for granted being able to “pee” especially when you have a golf ball size crunchy stone in your bladder. Poor Cece was taken into our adoption program only to discover she was urinating blood, and lots of it. An ultrasound revealed a large bladder stone - so she was placed on antibiotics and scheduled for surgery. She is finally on the road to recovery but it will take months for her bladder to “quiet” down. We would appreciate any dollars you can send her way to help with the unforeseen medical expenses!
