Do you have your pups "Howl-o-Ween" costume picked out yet? This fun frightful holiday is only weeks away, so let the creativity begin to flow! Have some cute pictures you'd like to share of your rescue in their favorite costume? We would love to see them!


The 4th Annual "Dia de Los Perros" is here again! November 1st at The Cove from 12-5pm, come hang with us and support spay and neuter outreach! There will be live music, food, and costume contests for your pet. Spay and Neuter is the most effective way to save lives in San Antonio, so why not have a little fun while supporting the cause? See you there!














What a day! Our 7th Annual Race for the Rescues 5k proved to be a success! Saturday morning greeted us with dark clouds and the smell of rain but despite the potential bad weather, 1050 racers showed up with their sneakers laced, smiles on and pets by their side.

Cross Country teams, service clubs with members of all ages, and families from all around San Antonio showed up to race for a cause. The Funky Monkey, Incarnate Word Cardinal, and Chips and Salsa from ACS came out to entertain everyone and join in on the fun as well. We enjoyed good eats from Kiolbasa Sausage, sipped on tasty beverages from Rosella Coffee and watermelon lemonade. The big hit (and favorite of the four-legged racers) were the natural dog biscuits from One Lucky Duck!

SNIPSA would like to thank our generous sponsors and devoted followers that supported the cause this year. We raised over $65k to help the homeless and abandoned animals of San Antonio; we couldn't have done this without you! 4 paws up, ladies and gentleman. Let's do it again next year! Did you or someone you know race this year? Click here to see a list of videos of racers crossing the finish line!









From Girl Scouts Troop 147, Isabella Martinez (11) and Yancy Ferraro (12) are preparing for their Silver Award by volunteering a ton of extra hours! Lately, these hours have been spent gathering donations of fabric, material and clothes from various people and businesses around San Antonio to make adoption vests for our rescues to show off at our events!

Isabella and Yancy have spent hours working hard to cut, patch, and sew vests of different shapes and sizes, so that every SNIPSA rescue will have the chance to strut their stuff in their fancy new threads. Together, they have made 37 adoption vests, and they are not done yet! This is not the first time Isabella has shown her crafty work, either. Last year, she hand-made vibrant, colorful customized dog tags and sold them for $2 each, donating all - yes all - proceeds to SNIPSA! We are so grateful to have dedicated volunteers on our team that aren't afraid to use their talents to help benefit animals in need. Thank you so much for all of your hard work, girls!

Football season is here so you know what that means... game day festivities and tailgating! Outings like this can be the perfect opportunity to get your pup socializing and let them join in on the fun with you! Here are a few tips to make sure you and your pup are prepared for game day!

1. Get game ready. Before you load up your pup in the car, be sure to check with the sporting venue to make sure dogs are allowed on-site.

2. Bring your tools. Be sure your pet has a collar with their ID tags with your contact information listed, an extended lead, food and water bowls, plenty of fresh water, waste bags, first-aid kit, and maybe a blanket for your pup to hang out on in case the pavement is too hot.

3. Be courteous. If your pup isn't generally well-behaved, a tailgating event might not be the best place to start. Also, keep in mind that even though your pup may be the cutest pup in their jersey, not everyone is a dog person. Keep your pet close by your side so you can help them remain on their best behavior.

4. Half-time treats. BBQ pits may be smokin' but it's not for the dogs! Check out the yummy treat recipe above and bring them with you to the event. You are guaranteed to score major points with their tastebuds!














Hello Henley! This big beautiful girl was found running around with another Lab buddy of hers in Seguin. She was very skinny and malnourished when she was first picked up off the streets, probably because she was living life on the road for so long. Life has turned around for this girl and we are gonna help her find the home she deserves!

Henley is your sweet, typical, happy-go-lucky Lab! She is affectionate beyond measure, loves everyone she meets and just wants to be a 70 lb lap dog. She is kennel trained although she would much rather prefer to have a bed of her own. Henley does very well on a leash, doesn't pull and would make a great exercise companion - whether you're a runner, swimmer or a hiker; she is always game for anything! She is no stranger to loading up in the car to go for a ride, so much so that she even tried to load up in the postman's truck while he was delivering mail to her fosters house! And being a Lab, of course, she loves the water! If you'd like to give Henley another chance at a happy life, fill out an application today! Watch her video!







Flash

We just wanted to share a few pics with you, Flash adapted really well to our home! We actually renamed him Napoleon for being tiny and mighty!

He developed a rash on his paw, the vet said it was a bacterial infection but he is being treated and it's improving slowly. Also his back scar is growing hair! Yay!

Thank you to everyone at SNIPSA, he truly warms our hearts and gets along great with his older sister Jolie. :)) happy times!











It was another great day for San Antonio pet owners- 315 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered free of charge in District 3 Saturday Oct. 11th. With an outpouring of volunteers, veterinarians, service groups, and SNIPSA "regulars", we were able to pull off another successful Big Fix!

Despite a small rain shower, people lined up with umbrellas and pets in tow, eager to have their animals sterilized, vaccinated, and microchipped. Two Facebook friends even volunteered to haul their charcoal grill and cook for the army of helpers. Spay/neuter continues to be a key element in helping San Antonio reach new heights in its pet overpopulation problem.

Thank you to the City for helping us fund the event and to Councilwoman, Rebecca Viagran, for spurring on her constituents and staff to ensure a successful outcome. We will be hitting the streets again in November serving even more animals and people in need.
