"A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have"

Celebrate this St. Paw-tricks Day with your best friend- there are lots of pet friendly activities happening in San Antonio, like the Annual St. Patty's Parade, and the dyeing of the River! From Pub Crawls to outdoor Arts and Crafts shows, check out all the Irish fun in town. Pets love to wear green too, so let them in on the fun! But remember- green beer is for people only!

Celebrate the Irish holiday and have a Happy St. Paw-tricks Day!











Thanks to our friends at the PetSmart on De Zavala, not only do our furry friends have lots of new toys to play with, but they've also got lots of great food, new collars, and tasty treats!

Over 500 lbs of food, hundreds of plastic and stuffed toys, 30 collars, and several wire crates were all donated to SNIPSA. Not only were are we able to provide places for our pups and kitties to stay in while they're in foster and toys to keep them busy, but we were also able to provide some food to folks who needed a little help taking care of their pets.

Thank you PetSmart De Zavala Team!

No achievement is accomplished alone, and San Antonio's improvements in animal care and live release took a lot of commitment from the people of San Antonio and the folks who tirelessly work to make to our city a place where there are no more homeless animals.

In an article posted by Out the Front Door, San Antonio's live release rate is headed towards 90% and could be reached by 2015. Thanks to a "strategic plan that identified three elements as “critical” to achieving a high live release rate: (1) a strong licensing program, (2) spay/neuter partnerships, and (3) high-volume rescue partnerships", San Antonio has vastly improved their live release rate which is the percentage of healthy adoptable pets who adopted, rescued, or fostered and not euthanized in at local animal control facilities.

Zucchini and Bacon Quiche Treats

Ingredients

  • 3 free-range eggs
  • 1cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 strips cooked and chopped free-range bacon
  • Half zucchini, chopped into small pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a small amount of cheddar cheese in the bottom of each mini muffin cup. If you are not using muffin cups, be sure to spray the pan beforehand to eliminate sticking to the pan.

2. In a medium sized bowl, beat eggs and add zucchini, 2/3 of bacon and the remainder of cheese. Carefully spoon mixture into cups.

3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the egg is no longer shiny.

What's black and white and cute all over?

SPUDZ!

If you've got a lap, give him a few seconds and chances are Spudz will be in it. An absolute cuddler, he loves to hang out with you on the couch. When it comes to food, he'll happily dance for treats, and you can get him to do just about anything for something really tasty. He can be picky about his dog friends, but as long as he's got a doggie friend who will ignore him he does great. Spudz is house broken and crate trained, and he even does wonderfully on the leash. Spudz is a smart guy and would love to show you! If you'd like to check out Spudz, fill out your application today!







Pickles

"Pickles joined our family in September as a timid, untrusting dog who was scared of everyone and everything. Although she seemed to have a connection with our 2-year old daughter from day one, she was hesitant around all other people and dogs. Over the last 4 months, she has really come out of her shell! She loves her family and follows us everywhere we go in the house. She now LOVES going on walks and gets excited to meet other dogs. She still has her great connection with our daughter and loves to be the first one in her room in the morning to wake her up with a good morning kiss - and comes up every night and hangs out for bath and play time - including doling out her signature "Pickle nibbles" (sweet little bites - no teeth!).

We love her so much and are so very thankful she is part of our family! And she has come so far in such a short time - we can't wait to see her continue to blossom as she settles in and realizes this is her forever home. Thank you for rescuing her and taking such good care of her until we found our way to each other."









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!
