This year’s Pupcakes with a Purpose marks the second time the three upscale pet resorts have partnered together to benefit charity.  “We are really excited about partnering to raise funds for SNAP, while celebrating our appreciation for the dogs in our lives,” said Steve Smith, owner of Rover Oaks Pet Resort.  “We encounter many animals in need of homes through our work in the community.  By assisting SNAP we are helping to stop the cycle of animal overpopulation, providing more adoption opportunities for the animals currently in shelters or foster care.   IMG_7090
“SNAP is an organization that benefits everyone in Houston’s animal community,” said Susan Briggs, owner of Urban Tails Pet Resort.  “We are thrilled to partner with Rover Oaks and ABC Pet Resorts again this year to benefit such a great cause and to educate Houstonians on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.”

“ABC Pet Resort is passionate about making a difference in the community in which we work and live,” said Suzanne Locker, owner of ABC Pet Resort.  “This collaboration not only benefits a great organization, it is also a great way to show our dogs how much we value them in our lives, giving them a treat they are sure to love.” IMG_7295 SNAP has provided more than 390,000 free and low-cost sterilizations since their inception in 1993, preventing the birth of countless unwanted animals that would likely have ended up in shelters or roaming the streets.  Through their unique mobile clinic, SNAP goes directly into economically disadvantaged areas to provide free services for residents on government assistance, ensuring that animals throughout the area have access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of their caretakers income.

About SNAPSNAP, the recipient of the 2009 Pinnacle Award from the Better Business Bureau, is a 501(c)(3) organization that operates in Houston, and San Antonio, Texas, with a mission to prevent the suffering and death of cats and dogs due to overpopulation, especially in low-income areas. SNAP envisions a world without homeless dogs and cats. Both Houston and San Antonio have expressed the desire to become “no kill” cities in the near future. SNAP recognizes that sterilization programs, which by definition reduce the number of animals that could possibly be born, are essential to these communities’ reaching that desired status. SNAP will focus on helping these cities reach their goal by designing, delivering, promoting, and advancing community-based animal sterilization services. For more information about SNAP and its programs, visit  www.snapus.org .
