Community Service

“Spring Branch Veterinary Hospital is passionate about supporting local animal rescues and animal shelters care for homeless pets.”

We also strongly believe in the importance of spaying and neutering dogs and cats to reduce homeless pet numbers. Millions of animals are euthanized every year in United States animal shelters due to overpopulation. We encourage you to adopt a pet from your local animal shelter or consider becoming a foster.

Spring Branch Veterinary Hospital often has foster kittens available for adoption at our hospital. Doctor Hughes volunteers weekly to provide veterinary care for homeless pets at the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area, where she also serves on the board of directors. Doctors Virginia Nell and Robert Duncan volunteer for the SNIPSA (Spay-Neuter-Inject-Protect-of San Antonio) “Big Fix” events where hundreds of dogs and cats are spayed and neutered. SNIPSA holds these events 5 times yearly to help reduce the pet overpopulation problem in San Antonio. Our Hospital also hosts donation drives for the Bulverde Area Humane Society.


We, at Spring Branch Veterinary Hospital, love being active in the Bulverde/Spring Branch area. In October of 2016, we hosted a fall family festival and raised cash and food donations for the Canyon Lake Animal Shelter Society.
