Spay Neuter Assistance Program

We are always in need of innovative ideas to help raise money and awareness of the SNAP program. SNAP relies on our all-volunteer staff to accomplish our mission, so we would be very pleased to have you aboard! If you choose to join our family of volunteers, you will be rewarded with a deep sense of satisfaction from knowing you are saving lives and ending the suffering of so many homeless animals.

Please print out a volunteer application and release form and return it by mail as soon as possible, so that we can match your interests and skills with the many volunteer opportunities available. Also, if you know any other animal lovers who you think would like to help, we ask that you share this information with them and encourage them to submit applications, too! We look forward to working with you to end animal homelessness!

Raise Funds for Spay & Neuter Surgeries.

We do this in many ways, including donations from personal contacts, strategically placed donation canisters, and fundraising events.  We are open to new fundraising ideas, and no amount of money raised is too small for helping the animals. Some of our volunteers have arranged for local musicians to perform benefit concerts. Other volunteers have encouraged friends, families, and co-workers to plan and carry out their own fundraisers. We have more than 200 ideas for fundraisers for children, adults, individuals or groups. One is sure to interest you, so give us a call!

Distribute Information About our Program.

It is important to let people know who we are. We need to reach those pet owners who desperately need our service, as well as those members of our community who would be willing to support SNAP's program through contributions. We need volunteers to scout good locations for our donation canisters, our spay/neuter posters, and other educational information about the benefits of spay/neuter. We need volunteers to keep these locations supplied with our literature.

Educate the Public.

We need volunteers to develop educational literature about animal overpopulation, the importance of spay/neuter, and responsible pet ownership. We do this with our newsletter, our web site, and handouts.

Raise Public Awareness.

We need volunteers to coordinate with local media and civic leaders to join our efforts to raise public awareness and encourage community involvement. The only way we can achieve a "no-kill" community is through community involvement.

Recruit More Volunteers.

Volunteering is rewarding, and it can be a lot of fun, especially when you get your friends involved!

Solicit Donations of Goods & Services.

We want to use all of our funds for spay/neuter surgeries, so we need to find merchants who will donate printing, office supplies, and items for raffle. We also need volunteers to bring in corporate sponsors - local merchants willing to donate cash or services for recognition at our events and in our published materials.

Help Out at Events.

Volunteers are needed at our information booths. Sometimes we sell donated items to raise money, as well as distribute information and talk to the public about their pets. We also need volunteers to hang fliers for upcoming events and/or sell advance tickets for the events.

Perform Administrative Tasks.

We need volunteers to assist with our phone lines, with mailings, with certificate sales, compiling statistics, etc. We need volunteers who are computer literate in any of the following programs: Word, Excel, Access, Publisher, Dreamweaver, Power Point, and Adobe Acrobat PDF.
