"Why SNAP?"

SNAP is a non-profit 501c3 animal rescue group dedicated to curbing the problem of dog and cat overpopulation in Georgia. Through advocacy and implementation of county-wide and local TNR programs, low-cost spay/neutering clinics, wellness services, rescue and adoption programs and education and outreach, we hope to sterilize, not euthanize, local home & neighborhood cat & dog populations, saving lives & money.

Trouble in Georgia

Everyday in Georgia thousands of homeless pets are put to death, costing Georgia taxpayers an estimated $1 million each week.

There must be a better, more humane approach that would both curb this senseless slaughter and more humanely save Georgia taxpayers millions.

We estimate that by pursuing aggressive Trap – Spay/Neuter and Release (TNR) programs, this misspent money could be cut to one quarter of the current budget – an estimated savings to Georgia taxpayers of over $40 million annually.

SNAP’s Mission

momandkittens
SNAP is dedicated to curbing the dog and cat overpopulation problem in Georgia through making spay/neutering services as widely available as possible.

Through the implementation of the county and local TNR programs and by helping to provide wellness services, rescue and adoption programs and education and outreach, we hope to reach our goal of saving lives and money.

We are a Georgia-based 501c3 non-profit organization sustained entirely from grants, donations and the generous and tireless work and support of our many volunteers.

Our Rescue Work

“Animal rescue work can be immensely satisfying, gratifying and devastating, all at the same time.

“You deal with the unknown, the hurt, the hungry, the lonely.  And you simply cannot save them all.

“You give love and get love back from these very special animals many fold in return.

“But every once in a while, you come across an animal that really touches your heart and you form a special bond that makes the work transcendent.”

– Kyla Jones, SNAP Founder, 2011
