About Our Rescue Group:

SNAP was born from a group of friends who were assisting with no-kill shelters in metro Atlanta for many years. Collectively, we have seen multiple abuse cases and countless emails that circulate daily concerning animals needing to be saved from euthanasia in local shelters. While we feel that no-kill shelters are needed, we also feel more attention needs to be focused on low cost spay/neuter options and to educate pet owners about spaying and neutering, to prevent the problem from persisting.

SNAP's main goal is to offer spay/neuter services to anyone with an animal needing to be fixed. Our second goal is to assist those in the rescue community and the community at large with managing feral cat populations by providing much needed food and spay/neuter services, to help decrease the growing number of homeless and unwanted pets in the Atlanta area and state of Georgia.

We also want to educate Georgians about the need for TNR and for spaying and neutering. While great steps have been taken, much more needs to be done to save the counties of Georgia from wasting millions of dollars each year euthanizing unwanted cats and dogs.

Together we will make the difference by helping to combat and eventually stop pet overpopulation through spay/neuter assistance and by raising community awareness.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our adoptable pets are kept in private foster homes - we do not have a central shelter location. Please visit us at the Buckhead PetsMart every Saturday between 12-3pm (except for holiday weekends) to meet some of our kittens and cats. The store is located at 3221 Peachtree Road, Atlanta GA 30305. To verify whether we will be at this PetsMart on a specific date, please send an inquiry to SNAP@comcast.net.

We now have kittens and cats in the 24/7 adoption center at the Castlegate PetsMart located at 1801 Howell Mill Road, NW, Atlanta 30381. You can visit the kitties any time the store is open, and an adoption volunteer will be available on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-3pm to answer your questions and facilitate the adoption process.

Our Adoption Process:

ADOPTION FEES:
kittens younger than 6 months: $100 each
kittens/young cats older than 6 months up to 1 year: $50 each
adult cats 1 year or older: $25 each
dogs/puppies: $150

All of our cats are spayed/neutered, combo tested for heartworms, feline leukemia, feline AIDS (FIV), and are dewormed, defleaed, and vaccinated according to their age requirements. All of our dogs for adoption are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, and vaccinated according to their age requirements.

You must first submit a completed adoption application to adopt one of our cats or dogs.

Our cat adoption application may be found here: http://snap-2it.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/2012-SNAP-Cat-Adoption-Application.pdf. You may also e-mail SNAP@comcast.net for a cat or dog application.

Once your adoption application is approved, you will need to sign an adoption contract in order to complete the adoption. You must be at least 21 years old to adopt from SNAP 2 IT.

Kittens that have not been spayed/neutered at the time the adoption application is approved may be pre-adopted and held for you upon receipt of a $25.00 non-refundable deposit. The remaining $75.00 adoption fee (per kitten/cat) will be collected when the adoption has been completed.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
