The SNAP Mission

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.

The SNAP Office is located at 2405 West Picacho Ave #103, Las Cruces, NM 88007  Hours: 11:00 am-3:00pm Tuesday through Friday. (575) 524-9265

 No appointment necessary!


SNAP would like to thank the Petco Foundation for their generous grant in the amount of $5,000.

All of us at SNAP are honored that the Petco Foundation chose to support SNAP and its work with TNR.


The new year started off right thanks to Petsmart Charities!

Petsmart Charities awarded SNAP a very generous grant in the amount of $22,360 enabling us to continue our lifesaving work in Doña 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.


Help your pets live longer, healthier lives

paw             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?
   paw             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. 
   paw             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! 
   paw             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.
