Dr. Karel Olguin

Executive Director & surgeon

“The coming years promise to be full of exciting changes as we work to make our services more accessible to the communities we serve, and to increase our capacity, enabling us to reach our goal of one million spay/neuter surgeries by 2037.”

Magda Serrano

donor & development lead

“It is a true honor to have been a part of the SNAP team for 20 years, and I am thankful to the amazing animal advocates who have supported SNAP since we began 30 years ago. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the animal companions who have visited SNAP and now live healthy and litter-free lives.”

Les Wood

grants & contracts coordinator

“As SNAP’s Grants & Contracts Coordinator for almost ten years, the 30th anniversary is more to me than just a testament to surviving three decades as a nonprofit organization; it also signifies sustained dedication, resilience, and impactful change.”

Lori Corbitt

practice manager at houston/pasadena

“I’m very honored to be part of an organization that has helped curb animal overpopulation for 30 years. I am proud that our passionate team has made spay/neuter and routine veterinary wellness care affordable for members of our community, making it possible for them to provide their pets with the care they need and deserve.”

Alex Brigman

Manager of Communications & Practice manger at Brooks

“I am pleased to be part of an organization that I know is making a real difference in the community. Having dedicated 30 years to making spay/neuter safe and affordable, SNAP has also been providing affordable veterinary wellness care to pets who otherwise might not have received it.”

Molly Phillips

practice manager at ingram

“Having had the privilege of working at SNAP for half of its existence, I am honored to be a part of an organization that is making such a positive change in the world. Our work has made a direct and daily impact in reducing the number of healthy companion animals being euthanized simply for having no home. What we do is vital to the community, and it is so fulfilling to know we are making a difference one animal at a time.”

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high volume appointment requests, you may experience difficulties in scheduling an online appointment. If the wheel continues to spin as you are attempting to make an appointment, it’s an indication that our schedule is full. Please check again on Friday mornings when we open new appointments for the coming week. We appreciate your patience. ❤️

Potential Houston Clinic Closures: Due to the upcoming severe weather, there may be closures or changes in operating hours at our clinics. Please check our social media channels for real-time updates on clinic closures.
