Our Programs

Affordable Spay/Neuter Clinics

Neuter Scooter I

Our affordable spay/neuter clinics are held “on location” throughout San Diego County via the Mobile Surgical Unit, the Neuter Scooter.  All operations on the Neuter Scooter are performed under the highest standards by licensed veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians.  In addition to a discounted procedure underwritten by donors, pets from targeted communities also free basic pet care services such as a pre-anesthesia exam and nail trim at time of surgery.  Clients receive results of the pre-exam of their pet and take home post-op documents.

The surgical suite is equipped with all the necessary equipment, including built-in kennels for recovery from anesthesia. For even more comfort, our bus is air-conditioned and heated. View the Bus Schedule »

Neuter Scooter II

PetSmart Charities has given us a rare opportunity to get a second bus on the road, by funding half of the cost of Neuter Scooter II, in the amount of $145,000. Our job is to raise the other half by the end of 2019.

Please HELP US reach this target to assist more animals!

Neuter Scooter Goes the Distance

Mobile = More Outreach!  Here are some of the vital programs that have made a huge difference in our community:

Critical Communities

Targeting low-income neighborhoods struggling with chronic pet overpopulation, due to lack of affordable vets, public and private spay/neuter programs, and pet education.


SNAP partners with the Native America Humane Society (NAHS) to bring services onto tribal reservations, where large feral dog populations exist. The NAHS sponsors clinics for members of the La Jolla, Los Coyotes, Mesa Grande, Pala, Pauma, Rincon, San Pasqual, and Santa Ysabel tribes.  

Homeless Connect

SNAP participates in the County-wide effort to spay and neuter companion animals living with the homeless, to prevent the birth of unwanted litters on the streets, where chances for survival in this harsh environment is slim. Volunteers pitch in by transporting pets to and from clinics.

Maryann's Mission

SNAP pays tribute to the memory of Maryann Stanco, long-time SNAP team member who worked tirelessly to schedule pets on the bus, by carrying on her legacy of helping senior pet owners struggling financially. Seniors 65 and over living on fixed incomes, are eligible to receive a spay or neuter for their companion animals, for $25 per procedure.


SNAP partners with the San Diego Chapter of Dogs on Deployment, to provide military personnel with canine companions, a "chit" to redeem for a free spay or neuter. Servicemen and women grades E1-E6, local or overseas, are screened by Dogs on Deployment then referred to SNAP.

Pet Education

SNAP visits Title 1 schools, after-school programs, and summer camps  in underserved communities throughout San Diego County experiencing pet overpopulation.  Three core workshops for grades K-3, 3-6, and 5-12 inspire compassion for and teach responsible care of companion animals, all provided free of charge.  Entire classrooms may visit the Neuter Scooter at clinic sites.  All courses come with handouts. SNAP reaches an estimated 3,000 students per year.

Community Outreach

SNAPs Neuter Scooter participates in major community events and smaller civic activities to bring awareness to the importance of spaying and neutering and proper pet care.  Rescues from Friends of SNAP serve as spay and neuter Ambassadors at many of the events.  Our schedule is posted to the website, Facebook, twitter, craigslist, and electronic newsletters.

Become a Loyal Life Saver

As a Loyal Lifesaver, you become part of the solution to reduce pet overpopulation and the suffering that follows, in some of the most underserved communities in San Diego County.  The problem of surplus animals is prevalent to these areas, because income-challenged pet owners who otherwise love their pets, do not have the financial means to spay or neuter.  Your monthly donation is a way to help us get more cats and dogs on board the Neuter Scooter surgical bus, to not only prevent the birth of unwanted litter after litter but also improve quality of life by no longer dealing with the negative consequences of remaining intact.  For many, this is their first exposure to any kind of veterinary care, and all of this is made possible because of you.
