The Big Give S.A is a 24 hr day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 5th, 2015. With hundreds of local nonprofits representing over a dozen counties, there is certainly a cause to fit your passion!

The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community's social challenges, bring nonprofits and donors together, expand the idea of online giving, connect people to the causes that move them the most and make giving FUN! By turning giving into a region-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of South Central Texas and make a huge collective difference. Last year's event raised over 2 million dollars for 467 different agencies! SNIPSA was the proud recipient of over $14,000!

Stay tuned as the Big Give makes a BIG difference in the lives of our companion animals!, Click here to learn more!

Remember, remember that dog from December? Our very own Christmas Miracle, aka Alec Baldwin?

From hairless and scabbed, to handsome and loved, this guy has officially found his forever home! If ever there were a story that could melt your heart, his is pretty much it. Alec had a rough start and had a lot of healing to do, but with an awesome foster, some medical support from the SNIPSA staff, and of course the sweetest personality you can find, he's got the happiest ending you could hope for!

On a rescue call out from San Antonio Pets Alive, Alec's sad eyes spoke to several rescuers and volunteers. His skin was raw and scabbed, he was missing most of his hair, and he was heartworm positive. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Alec's foster Amy contacted SNIPSA and let us know she was more than happy to take on the poor guy.

Months passed as Alec healed. His scabs came off, skin healed, hair grew back, and received his heartworm treatment. The once bloody and sad face began to smile and his tail began to wag. His personality began to show and we discovered not only was he sweet, but he loved affection! Skin that was raw originally now loved to be pet and scratched.

He met his adopters through his foster mom, and after just a trial of two days they knew they were in love and Alec didn't want to be anywhere else. Now he's enjoying his new home and loving life!


































She's so Fancy, you already know- Just look at those gorgeous eyes!

Originally a stray who was nervous around people, this sweet girl has come out of her shell in just the short time we've had her in our program. With the right foster home, she's quickly become an affectionate dog who loves to sit in your lap and will hang out by your side while you're relaxing.

Fancy loves everyone she meets and is quite the jogger as well. Not very big, Fancy would do wonderfully with any family, big or small. If you've always wanted to be a little Fancy, click here to see more photos and fill out the adoption application!








Matilda

We love to get updates from adopters and it's amazing to see how our puppies have grown up. When we adopt them out at 10-12 wks old, we're never 100% sure who they'll turn into. We just make sure they are in good hands and wait patiently to see the photos.

Ms. Matilda was adopted to a wonderful woman who has given her so much love in the last year she's grown up to be not only a beautiful dog, but a sweet companion.

"I adopted Matilda, known in my household as "Mattie", about a year ago and she has been a beam of sunshine in my life. She is very busy and keeps me and my 2 cats on our toes. She loves to play fetch, herd the neighbor kids and her favorite thing is to play in water. Thank you SNIPSA for the newest member to my family!"






Another Big Fix- Another Success!!

While the rain may follow us from neighborhood to neighborhood, we seem to prove time and again that it can't slow us down! Sprinkles and even a small down pour didn't stop a few hundred folks from lining up at our April 11th Big Fix.

At the end of the day the sidewalks had dried, the sun had come out and gone down and 280 pets were heading home after receiving their spay/neuter, vaccines and microchip for free. While the dogs and cats weren't really sure if they should thank us at that moment, the folks of this Westside
