Whether your cats live outdoors or just like to spend time in the backyard, here are a few tips you can use to keep your cats safe in the heat of the summer.

1. Food. Try not to leave food out for too long. After about 30 minutes, bugs will start to show up and eat the leftovers. Also, feeding your cats dry food will attract less insects. Check out "ant-proof bowls" designed specifically for feeding cats outdoors.

2. Water. Cats can dehydrate quickly, especially in the Texas heat, so make sure extra sources of water are accessible. Keep water bowls out of the sun, saving water from quickly evaporating in the heat. Finding a shaded spot for water bowls will also help evaporation.

3. Shelter. Like anyone, cats know how to find places to escape the sun. Provide easy access to shaded places such as under a deck to rest and drink water. Look into getting an outdoor cat shelter at your local feed store.

Thanks to our friends at Tails Pet Magazine for sharing this important information!

While block walking for our Big Fix clinics, we come across many scenarios. We see mamas nursing their young, abandoned animals, those scavenging for food, packs of free roaming dogs, you name it- it is always an adventure. This last clinic was no different. Two of our seasoned volunteers came across a tiny kitten that had been attacked by another animal, unable to use one of his back legs that had a terrible infection.

Not wanting to leave him to fend for himself on the streets, he was taken to the SNIPSA office to get the medical attention he deserved. Now he is making a full recovery...the infection has resolved and this little guy is able to romp around like a happy go lucky kitten. He is a beautiful tuxedo kitty with a motor that can put you to sleep. Will you be his second chance?

Cheesy Oat Clusters


  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large egg, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan.

2. Combine ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat until cheese is melted, 2 or 3 minutes, stirring so cheese doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Pour mixture into baking pan.

3. Firmly pack mixture using back of a wooden spoon. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

4. Remove from oven and let cool before cutting into clusters. Will keep fresh in an airtight container for 10 days in the fridge.

Oh the joyous stages of puppyhood! All the puppy breath, puppy kisses, and puppy chewing! While training is always the first step we recommend for learning manners, here is a DIY recipe for a chewing deterrent safe for everyone and your wallet.

1. In a spray bottle, combine 2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar with 1 cup of regular white vinegar.

2. Shake well and store at room temperature.

Voila! Now you have an effective homemade spray that will help teach your puppy what NOT to chew on!

Who'd have thought that such a pretty little face could possibly be stray? At first look Eva was just hanging out in a yard, a little dog sitting at home, but then the Animal Care Officer realized she was the one they'd been getting calls about. She didn't belong in that yard, or any of them! Luckily the office knew a safe place she could go, and that's how we said hello to Eva.

This scruffy girl is the epitome of sweet. She's got a perky personality and loves everyone she meets. It doesn't matter if they're big, small, dog, cat, or anything in between- Eva loves you! She practically prances when on a leash, does great in the crate, and is working on her housebreaking. Think you've got the perfect lap for this cute terrier girl? Eva agrees! You should probably fill out an adoption application today! Catch her clip!


"We adopted Rosalina in April and she has completely overtaken our hearts! We call her "Ella" and she loves the beach, lakes or any water she can play in! She keeps us active and is always ready to play ball or frisbee. Thank you for bringing her into our lives!"

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.
