Our Race for the Rescues is over, but it doesn't stop there!

We still have lots of pets to rescue. We couldn't have had such a great event without all of our Sponsors- you helped make this year better than ever! Alec Baldwin, our foster pups and kitties, and of course our staff, THANK YOU for donating!!

You've seen hundreds of stories about animal rescue that break your heart and make you question the world, but it isn't until you see it first hand that you realize how horrible things can be. Willow is one of those cases that makes even the most hardened folk tear up a little.

At first glance she is a "broken" dog- terrible skin from sarcoptic mange, bones showing from severe emaciation, and then there were the things you couldn't see; heartworms, a heart murmur, and a beaten spirit. Willow was withdrawn and wouldn't even look when you approached her. The first day she received a bath to help quiet her skin and some food to fill her so often empty stomach.

It's only been a few days, but we're already starting to see the beauty inside of this remarkable girl. Her foster mom says she's actually become "perky" and starting to crave a little attention here and there in between her skin treatments and constant feedings. We'll keep you posted on this sweet girl's progress and let her be a lesson to all of us who have seen the worst in the world- saving just one life is an irreplaceable feeling and all it takes is an open mind, and open heart!

Peanut Butter Bacon Treats

Ready for fall? What better way to celebrate the season changing than enjoying a little homemade treat. With two of your pups favorite ingredients, these bacon and peanut butter treats are sure to make them howl! Big thanks to Sally's Baking Addiction for the recipe!


  • 1 cup (255g) natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) nonfat milk
  • 1 large egg (or 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 2 cups (244g) whole wheat flour*
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (30g) oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
  • 2-3 strips bacon, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

2.In a large bowl, gently mix the peanut butter, milk, and egg together with a large spoon or spatula. Switch to a whisk to make sure no lumps remain. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto the counter and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and chopped bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy.

3. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters or a knife. Arrange on the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes.

4. Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Treats freeze well, up to 2 months.

If you've always wanted a big sister, then this Sister is for you! Like a small lion, she's not only got a fabulous look, but she's got such a sweet heart that you can't help but wrap your arms around her. She's had her hair cut for the summer, but when her coat grows out Sister is a fluffy bear of a dog who loves to put her head in your lap and receive scratches behind her ears. She and her sister Daisy had lovely owners who took good care of them, but as the folks aged they just weren't able to keep up with the girls care. Their coats grew thicker and more matted, they couldn't bring them in as much, and they weren't getting the attention and affection they deserved. When their owners were finally moved into assisted living, the girls needed a place to go. Now it's their chance to find another home where they can get all the love and attention.

Sister can be a little shy and first, and when she meets you she'll keep her distance but give you a big smile. After a few minutes she'll come up and let you give her a pet. She loves to be scratched under her chin and on her chest and of course behind her ears. She does wonderfully with other dogs and doesn't seem to mind cats much. She is housebroken and is crate trained, although she'd much rather be out and about. Sister is a genuinely sweet girl who doesn't require much exercise and would do well in any home. She would probably do best with older kids at least until she gets more comfortable around new things. If you've been looking for the big Sister you never had, fill out your application today!


My boyfriend and I adopted Stella (a boxer/lab mix in the 'Powerpuff' litter) almost a year and a half ago. We wanted to provide you with an update! I love her to pieces and feel as though she completes our family. She is so gentle with our friends' children and plays beautifully with other dogs. When she was 9 months old, she became a Minnesota puppy and acclimated well. Turns out she absolutely loves the snow. We have also discovered that she loves to swim! As we currently live in a townhouse, we got her her very own puppy pool! I thank you for your organization and appreciate the service you are doing in San Antonio.

3 Events Into The Year and We Haven't Slowed Down Yet!

It was a cool morning this time, no rain to pester the folks lined up outside, and the heat wasn't quite awake yet- making it a perfect morning for a Big Fix! Aside from the stray pup we picked up mingling with the dogs in line, all the owner and their pets were happy faces driving our volunteers and staff to work harder and harder. Check in was smooth sailing and surgery began around 8am.

Although we were a little short-handed throughout the day, our volunteers busted their humps and helped us spay and neuter, vaccinate, and microchip 286 pets! Surgery finished a little later than we're used to, but by the end of the night the pets were home, the gym was clean, and we were all ready for bed! Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped keep the Big Fix running, cooking delicious food to keep us fueled, and of course to all the vets and technicians who make sure every pet receives the best care available while with us.

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