Paw Print Dog Treats

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup brewer's yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

2.Combine flour, wheat germ, brewer's yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Place canola oil in a separate large bowl. Add flour mixture to oil in 3 additions, alternating with 1 cup stock; mix until combined.

3. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes (dough will be sticky). Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out rounds using a 2-inch fluted cutter. Transfer to baking sheets.

4.Make an indentation toward the bottom of 1 circle using your thumb, then press dough to make an arch of 4 small circles on top of the thumbprint using the tip of your pinky. Repeat with remaining rounds. Freeze for 15 minutes.

5.Bake for 20 minutes, rotating sheets and lightly brushing with remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock halfway through. Turn oven off, and let stand in oven for 40 minutes.

These treats can be stored at room temp. for up to one month!

A Big Thanks to Martha Stewart for this recipe!













With work and family running you ragged it can be difficult to give your pet the time they need to keep them happy. Bored dogs can become destructive dogs and while crate training is a life saver, there is something you can do to help keep your pup's brain busy.

Dogs use their senses to explore and the more you make your dog think, the more they'll stay entertained. This can be as easy as hiding a treat in a toilet paper tube, or if you're feeling crafty you can create your own re-stuffable toy. Most toys should be used with supervision to avoid your pup eating something they shouldn't.

Great toys to have on hand while you're gone are Kongs. These rubber toys are great for hiding treats and for most dogs they're almost indestructible. There also Busy Buddy toys. While these are slightly more pricey, the enjoyment your pet will get from using them, not to mention the fewer items you may find chewed on when you're not home is worth every penny!














At nine years old you'd think Samson was headed into his golden years, but like any active guy, age hasn't slowed him down one bit. Well past the puppy days, Samson is in the prime of his life. He doesn't chew things, is house broken, gets along with just about everyone he meets, and the only thing he asks for is the occasional walk and of course a comfy place to sleep.

If you've been trying to find that perfect pet to add to your household, take a look at Samson- he's guaranteed to be one of the most handsome and laid back guys you'll meet. Click here to see more photos and fill out the adoption application!












Minnie Cooper

Do you remember Cream Puff? She was the chihuahua who came to SNIPSA after she'd been attacked by a larger dog. Thanks to the doctors at ACS and our wonderful team, she was treated for her injuries and was also treated for heartworms as well. Cream Puff recovered superbly and was adopted by a great family from Pennsylvania! She's now been introduced to snow, has mastered the leash and car rides, and loves visiting coffee shops!

"Miss Minnie is settling is very well here in cold, snowy/icy PA! She has warmed up to both my husband and I extremely well. We can't leave her sight for a few seconds and she's come to find us. She is still timid at home, mostly a fear we will leave and never come back I'm assuming. We are praying over time that fear will subside.

We just adore her! She is a huge love bug and truly brings joy to our days! We are so grateful God picked out the perfect pet for us!"









THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN!

We're shouting it from the roof tops! Saturday's Big Fix event spayed and neutered 313 animals. It doesn't get much bigger or more fixed than that! While it's been said before, we absolutely can't stress enough how much we love and appreciate our volunteers, veterinarians, vet techs, and the hundreds of folks who spent their Saturday caring for the animals of our community. We aren't SNIPSA without you!

The morning started out soggy, but the line that wrapped around the Sonny Melendrez Community Center was a testament to just how much these free spay/neuter services are needed. People were waiting with their pets before the sun had risen, and some picked up their pets well after it had gone down. Cats in plastic tubs, puppies in boxes, and of course the large dogs who kept a watchful eye over the crowd- all were brought in with owners who want to what's best for their pets.

Thank you to San Antonio Parks and Rec for letting us use your facility- your gym has been reverted from surgery suite to basketball court again! Thank you Animal Care Services for assisting with the funding for this event, it was money well spent! And last but not least, thank you again to all the folks who came out on that rainy morning to support your community! It's a privilege working with you all and we can't wait to do it again!

Keep Calm and Fix on!
