Dogs: 971 | Cats: 950
SNIP Collier opened our first low-cost clinic in Collier County, on Davis Blvd in Naples in May 2021. The SNIP Clinic has enabled us to make an even bigger impact that we could have ever imagined.
In 2021 we were able to spay/neuter 1921 animals.
So far in 2022, we have sterilized over 2200 dogs and cats!
We have rescued over 146 dogs and cats from horrific circumstances. Some were owner surrenders; some were abandoned on the streets and others were born outside to feral dogs and cats.
In addition to the work we do in the clinic, we are still out in the field every day helping animals in need. This includes transporting strays to Collier Domestic Animal Services, picking up pregnant moms, or moms and puppies, and bringing them into a foster program with our partners, fighting for proper enforcement on cruelty, neglect and breeding, and educating the community about how to properly care for their pets. In addition, we had multiple special rescues this year of animals who were in very bad condition. We took each one in under our Helping Paws Medical Fund, got them all of the medical care and TLC they needed, and eventually played matchmaker and found forever homes for each one of them. Just recently we helped two very special animals. Iris is a sweet little kitten who was found as a stray in pretty bad shape, including a badly infected eye. We rescued her and one of our incredible volunteers, Tricia, fostered her. Iris required months of care before she was well enough to have her eye removed. Iris is now a foster fail and is healthy, happy and home with Tricia and her family. We got a call in October about a dog hit by a car. Through our network of volunteers, we got her to our clinic as quickly as we could to stabilize her. It was determined that she had multiple pelvic fractures and a hip out of socket. With the help of the SNIP Collier Helping Paws Medical Fund, Penelope had hip surgery and fully recovered! She was adopted and now lives the life she deserves!
SNIP is doing big things and we couldn’t be making the difference that we do without the help of our supporters like Gulf Coast Runners, Bailey and Friends, The Mercato and Venetian Village. We thank you for your unwavering support as we fight to end the suffering and overpopulation of dogs and cats in Collier County.
