Snap Founders
SNAP founders Jess, Daria, Holly, ??? and Linda. CSC SNAP was founded in 2005.

The Program

SNAP is an aconmym that stands for Spay, Neuter And Protect. Our local group is comprised of volunteers who help local feral cat colony caretakers trap and neuter cats who live.

Our Columbia, MO, SNAP group is only one of thousands that exist in the United States. Our group was developed by Columbia Second Chance volunteers and is designed to work with local veterinarians, animal rescue organizations, city and county programs and animal enthusiasts to benefit and control feral cat colonies. Columbia Second Chance board members and volunteers are an important resource, contributing both a wide range of knowledge and experience. Because of their on-going involvement in the community, CSC board members are in a position to help where other groups may not be able to.

The Mission

The mission of CSC-SNAP is to reduce the feral cat population in Columbia, MO, using a humane spay and neuter TNR program strategy that protects the public health while providing public education about the need to spay and neuter pets.
