Take me Home!

Last year Pepito was surrendered to the city shelter because his owner was no longer able to care for so many animals. When I took him in as a foster he had never been an inside dog and had to learn how to behave inside. He has made tremendous progress!! Pepito can now walk on a leash, play with toys, play inside and in the backyard with the other dogs. His favorite thing to do is cuddle on the couch next to you. 

Pepito is crate trained and house trained but needs to be let out frequently if he is left to roam the house. He loves his kennel because he knows he will get a treat when he goes in it for the night. As soon as he hears the treat container he runs to his kennel and sits in it until you bring him his treat.

Pepito does well with children (we have 3 in our home) but is sometimes startled by loud noises. Pepito loves to alert his family when someone comes to the door and does want to protect his family when a new person comes over. When this happens we let visitors give him treats so he knows they are good people. ( He loves treats!) He does take longer to trust men than women but once he gets comfortable with you (and knows you have treats!) He will love you.

Pepito will need a family that can go slow with him as he adjusts to a new home environment and new people.

He was scheduled to be euthanized, but San Antonio Pets Alive! saved him and now they are helping me find the forever, loving home that he has never known.

He is currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and is in a foster home. By adopting him, you not only give him a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care.

If you are interested in adopting Pepito, please email with Pet name and ID#. Please allow us up to 24 hours to respond as all fosters work with us on a volunteer basis.

About San Antonio Pets Alive

About Our Rescue Group...

San Antonio Pets Alive (SAPA!) is a new organization that will be modeled after the very successful Austin Pets Alive (APA). APA was instrumental in helping Austin achieve their goal of no longer euthanizing healthy, adoptable pets from the city shelter. SAPA has teamed up with Animal Care Services in order for the city of SA to reach their no-kill goal.

In partnership with San Antonio’s Animal Care Services, we are implementing innovative and progressive programs to:

Rescue as many pets as possible off of the daily “euthanasia list”. In our rescue program, to not duplicate work of other agencies, we focus solely on the pets who have already been passed over by other groups and the shelters’ adoption programs and create programs to save their lives and find them new homes.

Our rescue program is focused 100% on the dogs and cats who are about to be killed. We wait until the shelters have chosen the pets they want for their adoption programs and other rescue groups have pulled the pets that they can take, then we go in and rescue the rest that we can fit into our programs.
