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.

They see me rollliiinnn’…. They haaatttiiinnn’! Our little Scooter is the low-rider of your dreams. 🛵⭐️ This sweet pup is a quiet boy who loves to lounge and watch TV. He has a gentle demeanor and seems very friendly towards other dogs. Scooter had excellent manners in our office and we think he will transition easily into a loving home. He has a few years of being a dog under his belt already, so you won’t have to worry about the craziness of raising a puppy. Open your heart to this old soul and start the friendship of a lifetime. 💙

This Shepherd mix is simply b-e-a-UTIFUL! 💗👁 Meet Iris, a saucy southern gal from Central Texas. Unfortunately, Iris’ family was no longer able to care for her and she was left behind in the parking lot of Animal Care Services. While we don’t condone this kind of behavior towards a pet, we are glad that we were there to scoop her up. 🚐 Since coming into our program, Iris has settled in great at her foster home. She plays well with the 3 other dogs in the house and thoroughly enjoys their company. She is also very trusting and loving towards people of all sizes. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Iris will sit beside her foster dad all day and roll over for belly rubs when given the chance. She is fully potty trained, too, and will even go out through the doggy door. Iris still has that puppy energy so she would love a canine companion in her new home or an owner with an active lifestyle. If Iris seems like your perfect match, apply to meet her! 😋
