Our Team - Spay Neuter Network

VETERINARIANS

SNN utilizes a team of contracted high volume veterinary surgeons that rotate through our schedule in accordance with their work at their own practice or other facilities. Each of our surgeons is licensed to practice veterinary medicine in Texas and has years of experience in spay/neuter procedures. We prioritize the health and comfort of our clinic patients, so we only hire the best of the best!

OUR CLINIC TEAMS

SNN has a team of highly trained, high volume veterinary technicians assisting our veterinarians in everything that they do! Our technicians help to prepare your pet for surgery, care for them after surgery, and administer vaccinations and microchips.

Our Customer Service Team

In order to effectively respond to the hundreds of calls and emails our customer care team receives daily, SNN utilizes a call center to help us make appointments and an in-house customer service team to answer questions and address customer concerns.

OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH TEAM

If you live in one of the areas where we target our efforts, you may see one of our Community Outreach Coordinators on your street, at an event, in your church, or at a local business. This four-person team works diligently to educate members of our community about responsible pet ownership and our free and low-cost services.

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Jennifer Lavender, DVM
President

I am a single mom. I co-own 3 veterinary hospitals. I live on a farm. I have NO free time. Why do I volunteer? I have a million reasons why I don't have time to volunteer and only reason why I do. That one reason is the mission of SNN - To eliminate pet overpopulation through spay/neuter. And that one reason overrides all the others. I believe wholeheartedly in the mission of SNN. I have been involved with SNN for over a decade. I was the sole surgeon when SNN only had 1 location in a strip mall in Kaufman. Over the years - SNN has grown, and my life has created hurdles to finding the time to stay involved with SNN. However - also over the years - neither my commitment or SNN's commitment to that mission has ever waivered. I became involved with SNN because pet over population matters to me, and I do believe responsible spay/neuter is the key to solving that crisis. I stayed because SNN is making a difference and moving the needle in the direction of less pet's without homes. I look forward to the future of SNN and the ultimate fulfillment of our mission.

As a veterinary professional, I see the need for high quality spay and neuter procedures, vaccines, and parasite preventions to be available for those who struggle to keep up with rising medical costs. Increased innovation and standards have drastically advanced veterinary medicine over the last 10-20 years, but it comes at a higher price. Spay Neuter Network is able to fill this gap and provide access to care for those who have been left behind. Their outreach and involvement into communities is vital to the education of the people who live there and the protection of the human animal bond.


Bonnie Hill

I love SNN – the mission, the clients we serve, and especially the people who make it all happen. My love for our work and impassioned pursuit of greatness for SNN has never wavered. Rather, it has grown as we have pushed the envelope on what is possible. We’ve advanced from a small spay/neuter provider servicing one rural county to the creators of incredible national award-winning work. We’ve grown, from a grassroots organization to a leading national nonprofit helping to change the vision of how animals live across the U.S.


Trina Roffino

I have great passion for the mission of the Spay Neuter Network. Our work can end the problem of pet overpopulation in North Texas. By offering free or low-cost sterilizations we keep both the pets and communities healthy. It means the world to me to be able to help the animals and families that need us the most.

The mission of SNN resonates with me. I had often spent time volunteering at local shelters, and never really felt like I affected more than the few animals for which I cared. Joining the Board allows me to affect large-scale change by helping reduce pet overpopulation and empowering communities to responsibly care for their pets. Time is that one commodity we never get back. I want to use my time to create the largest bang for my investment of time. Spay Neuter Network affords me that luxury while participating with an amazing group of leaders.


Natalie Race
