Spay and Neuter Services
If you own a pet, you owe it to yourself and the community to get your animal spayed or neutered. With the thousands of pets left in San Antonio animal shelters yearly, San Antonio needs your help to keep these numbers down and it’s as simple as getting your cat or dog spayed or neutered.
San Antonio Animal Control Services (ACS) has given the SNAP program some grant money to assist in making this possible. With a $150,255 grant, SNAP will be able to provide 2,835 dogs and cats with spay/neuter services for free. SNAP has chosen to provide those services to residents of the 78202, 78203, 78204, 78207, 78221, 78227, 78242, and 78252 zip codes.
Residents can schedule an appointment for up to eight animals living in their homes for this free surgery. If the animal has not been vaccinated for rabies, they will be given the shots, as required by state law, for a fee of $10. Additional services will also be available for a fee.
I have personally used SNAP’s services for three cats since I moved to San Antonio and they provide an excellent service and take good care of your pets while they have their surgery. Even if you don’t live within the zip codes being given the free services, I highly recommend their low cost vaccinations and spay/neuter program. With San Antonio working toward being a “no-kill” city, these small steps help us reach that goal.
special thanks to Heather Hagans for mentioning this grant to me
