Spay-Neuter Action Project Celebrates Milestone: 16,000th Procedure Performed by Dr. Laura Paris on the SNAP North Neuter Scooter, mobile surgical unit.

Spay-Neuter Action Project (SNAP) is proud to announce a significant milestone in our mission to tackle pet overpopulation in North County. Dr. Laura Paris, SNAP’s dedicated veterinarian, recently performed her 16,000th spay-neuter procedure on the new SNAP North Neuter Scooter, launched April 1, 2021, marking a momentous achievement in our ongoing efforts.

The SNAP North Neuter Scooter, the newest mobile unit, was made possible through the generous support of Petsmart Charities, alongside contributions from local supporters and donors. Since its inception, SNAP North has been tirelessly traveling across Oceanside, Escondido, Ramona, Fallbrook, and even to the Indian Reservations of San Diego County, providing vital spay-neuter services to communities in need.

Dr. Laura Paris has been an integral part of the spay-neuter mission for over 12 years, demonstrating unwavering dedication to the cause of reducing pet overpopulation through prevention. Her commitment was highlighted this Valentine’s Day, February 14th, as she reached the remarkable milestone of 16,000 surgeries- solely on the SNAP North Neuter Scooter in Oceanside. (That’s 500 surgical procedures per month!)

The impact of these procedures cannot be overstated. Did you know that two unaltered dogs and their offspring can produce over 70,000 canines in just six years? Similarly, two cats can multiply into a staggering 400,000 felines in the same timeframe, while rabbits can produce millions. By providing affordable spay-neuter services, SNAP is actively curbing the cycle of pet overpopulation and alleviating the burden on local shelters.

In addition to our efforts with dogs and cats, SNAP North is proud to offer a low-cost all-rabbit spay day each month, further reducing unwanted litters and preventing the suffering that often accompanies unchecked breeding.

Meanwhile, SNAP East, stationed in El Cajon, is making significant progress with the completion of their first stationary clinic, thanks to the generosity of our many supporters.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Paris and the entire SNAP North team for their dedication and tireless efforts in decreasing pet overpopulation in North County. Together, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of animals and the communities we serve.
