RACE FOR THE RESCUESSeptember 29, 2018
In 2008, SNIPSA introduced an innovative, competitive 5K race where participants could participate and earn recognition with (or without) their dogs. The Annual Race for the Rescues was born and quickly became the top fundraising effort that we organize each year. Proceeds from the race provide funding for homeless and abandoned animals and spay/neuter outreach, all right here in our community.

Run Fido Run!
That’s exactly what more than 750 eager dog lovers did this past Saturday with SNIPSA’s 11th Annual Race for the Rescues… tutus and all. The rain held while 150 volunteers, local vendors, and community groups gathered together to benefit San Antonio’s homeless animals. Special thanks to Mike’s Dog Store, Gunn Auto, Shake Shack, HEB, IAAP, Raising Canes, FirstMate Pet Foods, Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital, Rosella Coffee, Las Nieves, Greg Barnett and Ross Benton Photography for coming out and supporting the cause. Face painting by Tammi Blythe, balloon twisting from Such Fun Entertainers, arts and crafts by Walden Pond, and glitter tattoos provided by National Charity League, were a special hit for kids and adults of all ages. And Team Dog made a special appearance with their search and rescue shepherds! Thank you to everyone that supported our event – faithful sponsors, volunteers, staff, and all the people old and young that entered the race to help an animal in need.Over $100,000 was raised to support the medical care of animals in the San Antonio community.
