San Antonio Community Resource Directory

We’re dedicated to providing assistance to homeless and unwanted animals in San Antonio and the surrounding areas.

SNIPSA's mission is fourfold: to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home adoptable animals from high kill shelters and the community, and to encourage responsibility within the pet-owning population by providing free spay/neuter services to areas of San Antonio with the greatest need.

SNIPSA is an all-volunteer, non-profit, 501(c) (3) rescue organization founded by a group of veterinarians and caring individuals.

SNIPSA launched its Big Fix clinics in May 2009. With a significant number of animals being euthanized every day in the San Antonio area, we knew there had to be a better way.

How could we target the pet-owning population and bring spay/neuter to one’s doorstep? We found that people were generally receptive to doing the “right thing”; we just needed to make it convenient and doable. Providing this service for FREE was also important to remove any barriers that might dissuade a pet owner from having his pet spayed/neutered. The more sterilized pets in our city, the less entering the doors of our shelters. It was simple.  

Big Fix clinics also save taxpayer dollars. It costs roughly $15,000 to host a Big Fix clinic, which is a smart investment considering that it would costs taxpayers almost 10 times that amount to impound, house, and ultimately euthanize the nearly 400 animals that are sterilized at a typical Big Fix clinic.

SNIPSA depends on grants and private donations to host its Big Fix clinics. Click here to help sponsor our next Big Fix clinic or here for other donation options.
