For many years Houston has been dealing with the devastating effects of animal overpopulation. Each day, countless animals roam the streets, homeless, hungry and frightened or end up in shelters. In a seemingly endless cycle, many of these animals are euthanized because there are simply not enough homes.
Houston-based charity, the Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) has been working for more than 18 years to stop this cycle by providing free and low-cost sterilization services to the community, preventing the birth of unwanted animals and giving shelter and rescue animals a better chance at adoption.
Through their stationary Spay Neuter and Wellness Clinic and their one-of-a-kind mobile clinic SNAP provides free and low-cost options for anyone that wants to do the right thing for their companion animal, but may lack the funds.SNAP would not be able to provide these valuable community resources without the help of the community through donations and participation in their fundraising events, like the Collars
