SNIPSA has re-homed 13,500 + dogs and cats

SAN ANTONIO – Are you interested in adopting a new pet that needs a loving home?

The nonprofit organization SNIPSA needs your help to either foster or take home some friendly pets in San Antonio.

SNIPSA was formed by a group of veterinarians and caring individuals dedicated to helping homeless and unwanted animals in San Antonio and the surrounding area. SNIPSA does not have a standing shelter and depends on a core group of volunteers to foster and rehabilitate animals in their homes. 

San Antonio impounds more than 33,000 animals a year, approximately 100 dogs and cats per day.

There are large, medium and small dogs, puppies and cats at SNIPSA that need forever homes.

With the help of a devoted group of fosters, SNIPSA has re-homed more than 13,500 dogs and cats from high kill shelters and the community and has provided over 17,500 free spay/neuter surgeries through its Big Fix clinics.
