Free Vaccinations through February

Thanks to a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the SNAP mobile clinics in Houston and San Antonio will be providing free  vaccinations to qualifying low income households. The vaccinations offered include distemper vaccinations for cats and distemper/parvo vaccinations for dogs.  This program runs through the end of February. The cost of these preventative treatments is normally $17.50 each.  Clients can check the Houston and San Antonio mobile clinic web pages to find out whether they qualify for free services. Those who do are encouraged to check the appropriate (Houston or San Antonio) mobile clinic schedule to find out when the mobile clinic will be in their neighborhood

Oldies But Goodies

From the San Antonio Humane Society

Senior pets are often some of the sweetest and most loyal animals in a shelter. They might be a few years older, but with age also comes wisdom, experience, and patience. Because they’ve been around a while, they’ve learned how to behave in nearly every family situation and will make great pets for single families, families with children, older couples, and everyone few and far between. Come check out our oldies; they are ready and waiting to settle into their new forever homes and live out their lives being wonderful companions.

These animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped and can be visited at the San Antonio Humane Society, 4804 Fredericksburg Rd., San Antonio, TX 78229

Tigger is a sweet guy who was taken in at our receiving facility at Animal Care Services. At 15 years old, Tigger is one of our special Oldies but Goodies pets, but don’t let Tigger’s age discourage you from making him the newest addition to your family. Tigger is still young at heart and is a very playful cat. He loves to receive attention and will often stretch out on his back and roll on the floor to show you just how much he is enjoying his time with you. Tigger will make a great addition to any family, so adopt him at the San Antonio Humane Society today! 

Mr. Spencer

Free Spay-Neuter Program for San Antonio Stray Cats


An ongoing program at the SNAP Spay-Neuter and Animal Wellness Clinic in San Antonio enables residents of the 78228 zip code to get community cats spayed or neutered for free thanks to a generous grant from The Summerlee Foundation. The grant covers free spay-neuter surgery for 100 community (feral, stray, or otherwise homeless) cats from within this zip code. It also reduces the cost of a rabies vaccinations (which is required by state law if you cannot provide a rabies certificate to prove the animal is already vaccinated) to just $5. This makes helping those homeless kitties inexpensive indeed!

You must bring the cat(s) to the SNAP clinic at 6758 Ingram Rd. in San Antonio. Cats will be accepted from residents of the zip code or trappers identifying where cats were trapped within the zip code. All cats will have the tip of their left ear removed as a sign that they have been sterilized. There are no exceptions to this rule. Appointments are preferred, but SNAP will accept cats in live traps without an appointment. Call 210-673-7722 or email SA-Appointments@snapus.org to set up an appointment or for more information.

SNAP would like to express its sincere appreciation to The Summerlee Foundation for funding this program to help address the problem of free roaming cats in the 78228 zip code.
