SNIPSA's 7th Annual "Race for the Rescues" 5K is right around the corner and will be here before we know it! Online registration is open, and the early bird gets the worm! Sign up today! Click here to register now!

So you've heard the hype about our upcoming Race for the Rescues 5K, but maybe running isn't your thing! Have you considered being a Volunteer? This is a perfect way to still be a part of the fun, and we could definitely use the extra hand! Click here for more information on how you can help!

All throughout the year, SNIPSA rescues animals that need extensive surgeries, blood transfusions, undergo heart worm treatment and the list goes on and on. On these sponsorship pages, you will see just a few of the animals that have needed extra medical attention and may not have received it if it weren't for your help.

Your $200 sponsorship will help cover the cost of medical needs, surgeries, medicine, and will also help many more animals that are out roaming the streets in similar situations. In honor of your generous donation, a sign will be made with your name along with a picture of the dog you choose to sponsor, and will be displayed at the finish line of the 7th Annual Race for the Rescues 5k on September 27th. Click here to see the full list of animals waiting to be sponsored, and for more information on how you can make a difference in the lives of homeless and abandoned animals in San Antonio.

Ingrid and Ana Mayer, 7th and 5th grade students at Keystone School have been active volunteers and fosters for SNIPSA for some time now. They have opened their home to animals in need, and have spent their weekends lending a hand at our Big Fix Spay/Neuter clinics. Recently, the girls threw a birthday party at Rollercade, and asked that donations be made to SNIPSA rather than receiving birthday gifts. Ingrid and Ana selflessly donated $300 to our organization, as well as a large kennel!

We are so thankful for young stewards like Ingrid and Ana - they are setting such a great example for todays youth by showing the importance of giving back to our community.

Thank you girls, for standing up for what you believe in and creating a path for others to follow behind! Your donation will help in more ways than you know!

Blueberry Paw Treats


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 325F.

2. Whisk together the water, eggs, and honey until thoroughly combined. Slowly add the liquid mixture to the flour, stirring gently to mix until a dough forms.

3. Pull off pieces of dough, roll them into a ball between your hands, and place them on a greased baking sheet with room to expand. Place blueberries on top of the cookies in a paw pattern and press lightly to cement them in the dough.

4. Bake at 325F for 22-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

We may think a bowl is just a bowl when shopping for pet accessories - but picking the right food and water bowl is more important than you think. Of course, style is important but health and wellness are the key factors to focus on!

1. Heavy Duty. Purchasing high-quality durable bowls will save you both time and money in the long run. Stainless steel bowls with rubber bottoms are sturdy and don't move around as much as a plastic bowl would. Consider your pups chewing habits as well. Some plastic bowls contain BPA, a chemical that can seep into water, so be sure to look for "BPA Free" on the label.

2. Size Matters. Studies have shown that 20% of large-breed dogs who were fed from raised bowls had a medical condition referred to as "bloat", or "gastric dilatation volvulus". In some cases, a raised feeder can help alleviate arthritis or joint problems, so be sure and talk to your Vet about your pets body type and weight.

3. Keep it Clean. Rather than taking the time to wash out our pets bowls on a regular basis, many people result to "topping off" food or water. Going too long between cleaning can actually contribute to oral diseases and bacteria. Mix equal parts baking soda and warm water to make your own disinfecting solution. Washing with warm water and soap on a regular basis will help keep away nasty bacteria too.

4. Felines. Hydration is imperative for every animal, but especially for felines. Some cats may need a little encouragement when it comes to staying hydrated. Fountains and water bowls that recycle streaming water are a great way to keep your cats attention and curiosity.

Style and matching are indeed fun, but your pets health is more important! Keep this in mind the next time you're looking for new bowls.

Want to help Madeline find a happy ending to her story? Check out this wonderful lady!

Ms. Madeline was a wanderer- whether she was dumped or just happened to get loose, she'd been hanging around for awhile, and finally got picked up by Animal Care Services. She hung out in the kennels for a little while, but the staff knew she deserved better, and rather than wait around in the hopes that she'd get adopted, they asked us to take her. She was such a sweet girl we couldn't say no!

Madeline is a lover. Once you've pet her, she'll follow you everywhere you go. When you sit down she's right there leaning against your leg, or laying at your feet. She does great with other dogs, but doesn't play much. She'd rather just hang out with her people instead. Madeline is house broken and crate trained. She loves to go on long walks! She'll walk all over the neighborhood if you let her. If you'd like to meet Ms. Madeline, fill out an application today! Watch her video!

Princess Buttercup

"I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with Princess Buttercup! She is such a delight!! I think she was born to be indoors because she does her business outside and wants to go right back in; in fact, after the first day she knew exactly how to get back to the apartment! We went to Petsmart the other day to get a different collar (the first one was too big) and she got a new toy (her favorite now!), a Tigger. We went to again a couple of days later to get treats and more food and her tail couldn't stop wagging. She was so excited to be there. She has her moments but she is a very smart, wonderful addition to our family! I'm not sure what it is, but we have adopted all of our past dogs through rescues and each one has been wonderful. They must know they are special and their love to give is even greater.

SNIPSA rocked it again at June's Big Fix spaying/neutering, vaccinating, and microchipping 285 dogs and cats for a westside neighborhood. It never ceases to amaze us the need for service as people line up just after sunrise with pets in tow- dogs arriving in purses, HEB Buddy Bucks totes, grocery carts, and even a cat in its very own Thin Mint Box. People are determined to get their pets to the event and come up with the most creative means of transport.

Again, we send out our deepest appreciation to St. Benavides Community Center for hosting us, to ACS for partnering with SNIPSA through its Pets for Life Grant, and to the vast number of volunteers, staff, veterinarians, and supporters who cheerlead us through our mission. The Big Fix continues to be a successful model in reducing euthanasia by meeting people and pets right where they are...offering free service on a Saturday in the heart of their neighborhood. Booya...with your help...may we continue to SAVE LIVES. Click here to see the video gallery from the latest Big Fix.
