It’s SNIP Time Again!! #TNRWORKS


Lots of my readers are always excited to see our quarterly SNIP Clinic (spay, neuter impact program). Mom L has been volunteering at SNIP for almost two years and Dad P has been doing this close to one year.

Mom L always works the admission so they can note each entering cat’s coat color, length of coat and any medical concerns easily visible like a few who enter with trap butting nose injuries. They also note if the trapped cat has any food or empty food dishes in their trap. Those always go last to S/N just in case they ate on that morning.

Dad P works transport. It is a very tough job, as those cats in traps weigh a lot! He takes them from admissions to the sedation station at first. Then later on in the morning he starts taking them from surgery to the recovery room, where Mom L is then waiting to help care for them.

Here are a few of the totally awesome and gorgeous cats that come through admissions.

This is an ALL VOLUNTEER clinic, including the Vets and Vet Techs. And SNIP has its very own caterers!! Seriously, a few people deliver the most amazing AM and lunch foods, always gluten free, vegan choices!! What  delight! And those deviled eggs are Mom L’s fave!

TKS and I are so proud of Mom L and Dad P and all the others who volunteer on this special day, four times a year in Contra Costa County. Thank you to SNIP!!

    Every SNIP helps to keep the number of kittens who would have got more kittens to start the cycle off again.

  10. What a pawsome program…and big paws up to your humans for pawticipating in it, Savvy.

  11. I am heartened each time I see your SNIP report, everywhere should have the same and should be supported by central funds from National and Local Authorities. Three cheers for your mom dad and all that helped that day. purrs ERin

  12. SNIP Clinic is awesome — and so are Mom L and Dad P for volunteering their time.

  13. Yay for your parents who volunteer to minimize the number of cats without loving homes 🙂

  14. Those little kitties do look frightened but they really have no idea that what’s going on will make their lives so much better! Yay for your Mom and Dad helping SNIP!

    Hugs, Sammy

  15. Paws up for your humans and for SNIP! Those kitties who come through the SNIP program look scared, but they have no idea how fortunate they are.

    Your Mom and Dad are part of an amazing group of people Savvy! We are so proud that there are wonderful caring people out there like them!

  17. I am proud of your humans too, for all the good work they do!

  18. This is great, peeps make voluntary work that means so much for these cats. I hope that some day we will have this in Finland too. Once a year a municipality vet arranges a day for neutering cats. It is not free but cheaper than normally and the owner must take his cats there. In the countryside is yarsd full of cats, having kittens three or four times a year, but these peeps are not taking their cats to a vet.
    A heart warming post, thank you.

  19. it’s so great that your pawrents help out at the SNIP front. Every year we see the sad results, careless people caused and I wish so much that we would have such an organization here too …..

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
