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 Wag" is back with Volume 3! Be sure you are up-to-date with all of SNIPSA's latest stories, news, and life-saving victories. Check it out today!














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!









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!

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.














Meet Poly! This pretty girl is super sweet and energetic! She loves to play and wants every dog and human to be her friend. She is recovering from Demodex (noncontagious mange) and her hair is starting to grow back in beautifully.

She is doing very well with her potty training, and has the crate thing down too! She will sit quietly in her crate until it's time to go outside. The moment she gets out in the yard, she rounds up all the dogs for playtime and keep away! She loves having someone to play with and hopes that you will be the person that plays with her forever!

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.
