OUR FIRST QUARTER CENTURY TOGETHER!
“That day I decided I was going to do something to stop the killing of homeless animals,” recalls SNAP founder, Sean Hawkins, when relating the story of a tiny shelter puppy whose life he was charged with ending simply because she was too small to be put on the adoption floor. That puppy, who Sean named Sideeke, was Sean’s loyal companion for 22 years, and was the reason SNAP began. We have Sean and Sideeke to thank for bringing SNAP to life. But the suffering & death we’ve prevented since then–leading us the incredible milestone in 2019 of 25 years of service to our community, was only possible through the partnership of passionate animal welfare advocates like you. Your continued financial support will help keep SNAP going so we can continue our tireless work to end the needless suffering of cats & dogs by stopping the cycle of reproduction where it begins—through spay/neuter.
USE YOUR IRA TO MAKE YOUR CHARITBLE GIFT IN 2018!
If you are age 70 1/2+ you may direct a portion or all of your required IRA annual distribution to support the lifesaving work of SNAP. When you make a gift this way, you will not incur federal income tax on the withdrawal. To qualify, gifts must be made from a traditional IRA account by your IRA administrator directly to SNAP. (Funds which are withdrawn by you and then contributed must be reported as taxable income.)
