We take pride in providing low-cost Spay/Neuter with high standards of veterinary care. We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit In Kissimmee, FL. Our Clinic doors eagerly opened in August of 2016.
Our Mission remains to provide the residents of Central Florida with humane solutions to the pet overpopulation problem through education and by offering low cost spay/neuter services.
It started in 2001. One person, one vision, one animal at a time. Founder Gloria Wade was determined to end pet homelessness and reduce animal overpopulation in Central Florida. In 2002, the organization she founded (The Animal Welfare Alliance of Central Florida) was instrumental in convincing the commissioners of Seminole County to eliminate the practice of adopting out intact animals from the County Animal Shelter. This in turn brought the benefits of spaying and neutering to the community’s attention. From then to 2013, with the help of her sister (Joan Frazier), the organization has supported many spay/neuter programs and assisted hundreds of pet owners in need.
In 2014, the organization was re-named and re-structured to be more efficient and more effective. Today, under the name SNiP-it, we are still focused on the vision of assisting the residents of Central Florida with low cost, easy access spay/neuter options. While our name has changed, our mission has not!

Susan joins the SNiP-it Team from Chattanooga, TN. She started her career in rescue & spay/neuter in 2005 when she started volunteering at The Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga. She created a dog walking program to ensure that each pet waiting for their forever home got attention. In 2006, she started as an office assistant at a brand new spay/neuter clinic – Wally’s Friends. Her passion for spay/neuter pushed her into the position of Office Manager and Transport Coordinator.
In 2015, she left to be a stay at home mom to her son, Emerson. Looking to get back involved with the mission, she accepted the position as Clinic Director at SNiP-it. Moving with her is a wonderful husband, sweet baby boy, 2 dogs “Zoey & Tiana”, and a once feral cat “Frankie”. She looks forward to helping pet overpopulation in Central Florida! In her free time, she loves spending time with her family, her and her husband always put on a light show at Christmas, and they are also excited to be close to Disney World!
Yami is originally from Puerto Rico. She has always had pets since an early age and developed a sense of nurturing them and she has had the pleasure of working with animals for the majority of her life. She began her career working for a pet store in Houston, TX and from that experience, developed an interest in animal medicine; creating treatment protocols and preventive care for incoming pets. Later she moved to Florida and worked at the Jacksonville Humane Society. There she was able to gain knowledge about animal behavior and participated in DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) of the US Humane Society. Through DART she was able to assist with Hurricane Katrina relief which relocated pets to safer areas and reunited lost pets with their owners. She worked at the Orlando Humane Society for over 12 years at their high volume spay/neuter clinic. She educated the clients in the benefits of spay and neuter, proper vaccination and prevention of parasites. She considers herself to be blessed because she is able to do what she loves doing the most. She knows that her work makes a difference in pets, their owners and her community.

Alyssa started out as one of our volunteers her at SNiP-it. Through hard work and dedication she has now become one of our Veterinary Tech Assistants. She is enrolled in college starting her life’s journey to becoming a Veterinarian.
She was born and raised in Florida. She has 3 fur-babies: her dog Stitch; and cats, Simba and Wednesday. All of which are frequent office guests at SNiP-it.
Simba came to us during the COVID-19 pandemic. He is truly an amazing animal; which is why he has a title and a spot on our website. He is our office cat and provides much needed snuggles or head bumps when we are having an off day.
