What is a "Big Fix"

SNIPSA launched its Big Fix clinics in May 2009. With more than 100 animals being euthanized every day in San Antonio, we knew there had to be a better way. How could we target the pet-owning population and bring spay/neuter to one’s doorstep? We found that people were generally receptive to doing the “right thing.” We just needed to make it convenient and doable. Providing this service for free was also important to further remove any barriers that might dissuade a pet owner from having his pet spayed/neutered. The more sterilized pets in our city, the less entering the doors of our shelters. It was simple.

SNIPSA set out to build partners in the community. Partners that included churches and community centers right in the heart of the neighborhoods where the largest number of stray and un-owned animals roamed the streets; the same streets that animal control officers frequented and impounded thousands of unwanted dogs and cats. It was in these zip codes that SNIPSA focused its Big Fix clinics.

Furthering Our Cause

SNIPSA depends on grants and private donations to host its Big Fix clinics. PetSmart Charities and San Antonio Area Foundation have been critical in helping SNIPSA purchase medical equipment and necessary supplies for our MASH style operations. However, their support is not inclusive in keeping our Big Fix clinics running. SNIPSA implemented a “Big Fixers” program for those donating a minimum of $200. Big Fixers will be recognized on our website and honored for their donation. If you are interested in becoming a Big Fixer, you can make a charitable donation by mailing a check to our address or thru an online donation at PayPal. We appreciate any support in helping SNIPSA save more lives.
