SNAP’s mission is to save the lives of companion animals in San Diego County through prevention – providing public awareness, educational materials, affordable spay/neuter procedures and subsidies when qualified. SNAP reduces pet overpopulation and the cruel reality of euthanasia in our shelters of these unwanted dogs and cats.
About: What Does SNAP Do?
SNAP has spayed and neutered over 55,000 dogs and cats in San Diego county from low-income households for pet owners who could not possibly afford the surgery at a private veterinary clinic. The SNAP surgical team has accomplished this by taking the mobile unit, the “Neuter Scooter,” into financially challenged communities — “delivering” spay and neuter services directly to neighborhoods. SNAP operates 16- 20 clinics a month, fixing 25-30 pets per clinic, educating hundreds of adults and children, preventing thousands of unwanted litters, therefore saving more lives of companion animals. With a budget of $550,000, SNAP relies completely on donations and grants, and makes every penny count!
