PB Pupcakes

A tasty treat for your pup, try these easy pupcakes to celebrate a birthday, a graduation from obedience school, or just for fun!

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup quick cooking oats
  • OPTIONAL: peanut butter for frosting, dog biscuits or treats

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line a cupcake tin with 6-7 cupcake liners (we made 7)

3. Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, honey, and shredded carrots in a large bowl. Feel free to omit the honey if you'd like

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and oats. Add this to the carrot mixture, and stir until all ingredients are fully incorporated

5. Divide the mixture evenly among prepared cupcake liners

6. Bake for 15-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs on it and the tops are slightly golden brown

7. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack

OPTIONAL: Frost tops with peanut butter, and top each pupcake with a dog biscuit. Voila! You've got the perfect pupcake for any celebration!



















The need to help animals in our community is never ending. Dandelion is another elderly girl that found herself in someone's driveway- severely dehydrated, blind, and emaciated. Covered in cactus spines, we knew she had been wandering around without any real destination. We started her recovery process and spent hours, re-hydrating Dandelion with IV fluids and removing cactus spines from her body and head. Blood work revealed she was diabetic. Without insulin, she couldn't absorb her food. She literally looked like a walking skeleton weighing just 37 lbs, and for a lab, this is significant. The SNIPSA team decided we would give her a try - starting insulin to see if we might be able to help her. Within just one week she was a different dog. She had gained five pounds, was starting to move about, and found her bark. keep an eye on our website and watch the dramatic improvements Dandelion keeps making. She is one amazing old gal and we are happy we gave her a second chance!



































At first glance most folks just notice Diesel's size, but when you look into those golden eyes you'll notice a heart the size of a truck!

Diesel was found as a stray but it could never be the life for him. This guy loves people just too much! Diesel can be a little picky about his dog friends, but it's really because he wants to give his people all he's got. He'd love to have an active owner who will let him ride and long to the lake, the river, or to the top of a mountain.

Big and bold, huge and handsome, if you like to explore the world and want a dog who is up for any challenge, then he's your guy!. If Diesel keeps you running, click here to see more photos and fill out an adoption application!












Ina Pearl

When we first saw Ina Pearl, she and her friend Presley had spent all their time outside. Ina was so very thin, missing most of her hair, and her eyes were clouded with mucus. She needed some TLC, and the rescuer who found her knew they could give it with some help from SNIPSA.

Fast forward to nine months later and Ina is a whole new pup! She was adopted by an incredible family who has shown her the true meaning of love. From her brother Tyson to her adoptive parents, Ina has found the perfect home!

"We absolutely love! love! love! Ina. She has gained some weight since we brought her home. Her hind legs have strengthened some to the point she is able to go up three stairs she was couldn't climb when we initially brought her home. She seems to suffer from constipation so we give her baked sweet potato daily with her food. The sweet potato seems to help. When Ina is full, if she has any sweet potato left over our other doggie Tyson is always eager to clear her plate. He's gained some weight thanks to Ina. Last night they were sleeping on the trampoline 'couch' together all on their own. They have become good buddies!"






Another Big Fix- Another Success!!

While the rain may follow us from neighborhood to neighborhood, we seem to prove time and again that it can't slow us down! Sprinkles and even a small down pour didn't stop a few hundred folks from lining up at our April 11th Big Fix.

At the end of the day the sidewalks had dried, the sun had come out and gone down and 280 pets were heading home after receiving their spay/neuter, vaccines and microchip for free. While the dogs and cats weren't really sure if they should thank us at that moment, the folks of this Westside neighborhood were so appreciative- we couldn't help smiling!

We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers, wonderful Veterinarians, fabulous techs and of course our superb and oh so tired staff!

Keep Calm and Fix On!"
