Home for the Holidays? Bring a pup with you! Join us on Saturday, December 20th and Sunday, December 21st at Whole Earth Provisions in the Alamo Quarry Market from 11am to 4pm. Help us continue our mission of saving lives by giving a homeless animal a loving home. Over 50 animals are waiting to find their "Home for the Holidays", better yet, for every holiday!

Christmas can take on a different meaning for people all around the world, varying by culture from family to family but there is one thing that is universally understood. Christmas is the season of giving.

There are so many precious lives in the San Antonio area, and all over the world for that matter that are in need of shelter, medicine, warmth and love this holiday season. Maybe you're unable to invite an animal into your home to stay forever, but you can do just as much good by donating goods or something to help cover the costs of medical care for an animal in need. Consider giving the gift of hope this year; it's a gift that will last a lifetime! Click here for a list of ways you can help this holiday season! All donations are sincerely appreciated and are tax-deductible.

As a rescue partner, we witness animal cruelty and neglect on a regular basis. Some things are easier to accept than others. We often find ourselves asking why, how, wondering what circumstances could have led to such demise. This is exactly the case with "Christmas Miracle" - an average dog living on the streets trying to survive. Riddled with demodex, his skin sported excoriations from head to toe. Secondary infection took over and this poor guy looked like something out of a horror film. Not to mention, Christmas Miracle is extremely underweight and tested positive for heartworms.

He has a long road ahead but one we are hopeful will bring recovery. Medicated baths, treatment, and time are all part of his regime. This guy is just so grateful to have a warm palette to lay on and food and water served bedside. He wags his tail and follows you with his eyes, not ready to call it quits. Click here to donate on behalf of his cause. Thank you for providing Christmas Miracle with a MIRACLE!

If you've got older dogs, chances are you've had your fair share of dealing with hot spots. Even with the younger pups too, hot spots can sneak up and make life a miserable, itch, irritated mess for a while. Here are a few holistic hot spot remedies that will help sooth their dry, irritated skin without adding the extra chemicals.

1. Colloidal Silver. This is a great "go-to" for hot spots or other infected areas. You can find this in a spray bottle or a dropper, this anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal agent is a great way to soothe those pesky spots.

2. Coconut Oil. It's anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial. What more do we need? Rub a little bit of coconut on your pooch with a clean cotton ball or q-tip. To help deter them from licking (because they might love the taste of it!) dab a little bit of Apple Cider Vinegar on first, and then rub the coconut oil on. You can also mix in 1/2 a tablespoon in with their food. This will support their immune system and over all skin health. Plus, they love it!

3. Apple Cider Vinegar. We have all heard about the plethora of benefits Apple Cider Vinegar has, including help with hot spots and skin irritation. We have found this helps relieve the itchy part the quickest. Just pour a little bit onto a cotton ball and dab onto the irritated area. They might not like the smell, but they will feel much better once it's over!

Always consult your vet before applying to infected areas. Be sure to keep away from their eyes.

To infinity and beyond! Or just to the couch... Caught dodging traffic on Broadway, a Good Samaritan followed Buzz to his "owner". It turns out the gentleman had inherited Buzz from a neighborhood, but didn't really want him or to take care of him. He offered him to the Good Samaritan, and of course they couldn't say no. We knew Buzz deserved a second chance, so we went ahead and brought him in to SNIPSA. Now it's time to get him home! Buzz knows his name well and has become quite fond of it! He loves to go on walks, gets along with pretty much every other canine he comes in contact with, and has proven to be a very laid back and "chill" gentleman. Buzz likes to hang out on the floor next to his foster parents or cozied up in the chair with them. He isn't by any means "needy", but likes to know where his people are. He is house broken, and will cuddle up in his kennel just fine when his foster family has to leave home for the day. Buzz is definitely an indoor dog and would love to make a home with you! Fill out an application today! Catch his clip!


"Baxter has been the most amazing dog. Everyone in the family is completely in love with him. He's spoiled rotten. I've never felt like it's us that picks our dogs as much as it's our dogs who have picked us over the years. I'm thrilled that Baxter chose us. Thank you for all that you guys do."

1 day. 8 Veterinarians. 150 volunteers. 258 pets spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped- Priceless!

It may have been our last Big fix of the year, but we were happy to end on a great note! We've officially done over 1400 sterilizations for pet owners in under served neighborhoods, We couldn't thank our volunteers and supporters enough. We love what we do and can't wait to start a new year helping our community to reach No-Kill!
