Whether you’re planning a night on the town to ring in 2014 or celebrating with traditional New Year’s Day collards and black eyed peas, the end of the year offers a chance to look back at 2013 accomplishments and turn our eyes to the dawn of the New Year. SNAP’s collective eyes are filled with hope because we know that 2014 promises to be a year full of good work, new friends, new rescue adventures, and new challenges.
Some of our highlights for 2013 are:
We spayed/Neutered 649 animals and rescued 429 from the streets or animal control, and held our biggest trapping event ever when we partnered with Best Friends and provided TNR for 5 apartment complexes in DeKalb county and trapped 60 cats in one day.
SNAP is thankful for every pink nose, spotty paw pad, swishy tail, ball-fetching, biscuit-making, smile-producing four-legged friend in our lives (with a respectful nod to a few fowl friends we have rescued, too!). We are just as thankful for you, our human supporters. Since our inception in 2009, SNAP has helped hundreds of animals. You may not realize that your support has allowed SNAP, over the space of a few generations, to plant the seeds that will *prevent millions of unwanted Georgia animals* from living short, often brutal, lives without homes, shelter, or medical care. Your support is a blessing to us, these animals, and every living creature that our work touches.
The end of the year also signals your last chance to make a tax-deductible donation to help fund SNAP’s work. As with many other not-for-profits, the economic downturn has impacted SNAP’s operating fund and drained our reserves. As an all-volunteer organization, we rely on your donations and our fund raising efforts to continue our mission of spay neuter and to prevent more homeless animals from living in the streets of Georgia. Even the smallest bit helps.

If you’re making a New Year’s resolution to get more involved in the community, remember that SNAP is always looking for volunteers, too. You can apply here.
From the bottom of our fuzzy hearts, we thank each and every one of our supporters and friends and wish you a remarkable 2014. We look forward to seeing you at an adoption day or SNAP event soon
