To prevent the suffering and death of dogs and cats due to overpopulation
Together, we can make a difference in the welfare of animals.
Thousands of animals are put down each year in shelters. We can reduce the number of animals destroyed by spaying or neutering our loving companion animals.
Like everything else in life, veterinary charges do increase each year!
In order to help more county residents, SNAP regrets that we will have to increase our voucher cost by $5 for all animals.
The co-pay for cats will now be $30/co-pay for dogs will be $40, effective Tuesday, April 4, 2017.
SNAP would like to thank the Petco Foundation for their generous grant in the amount of $10,000.
All of us at SNAP are honored that the Petco Foundation chose to support SNAP and its mission of preventing the deaths of dogs and cats (rabbits too!) due to overpopulation.
The new year started off right thanks to Petsmart Charities!
Petsmart Charities awarded SNAP a very generous grant in the amount of $25,000 enabling us to continue our lifesaving work in Dona Ana County.
We can never extend enough thank yous but, to each of our supporting organizations, we are so grateful for you and the support you provide us in our times of great need!
SNAP and Bissell are Partners for Pets!!
Help your pets live longer, healthier lives
Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted pregnancies and limits pet over-population (over 23,000 in El Paso and Las Cruces last year) but, did you know that there are many health benefits aside from unwanted puppies and kittens?
Spaying your female pet helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant in about 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. Spaying before the first heat offers the best protection according to the ASPCA.
Neutering your male pet prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems. You get the added bonus of behavioral benefits! Your spayed female will not go into heat. Female cats can go into heat four to five days every three weeks during breeding season!
Your neutered male will be less likely to roam or mark their territory by spraying. He will also likely be less aggressive with other males. Neutering is not a quick fix for all behavioral problems but, it often reduces many undesirable behaviors.
Talk to your veterinarian to determine the best time to spay your pet!
