A289150 Tessa

 Tessa is one of our special cases, as she was hit by a car. She has been recovering in foster care and is a true fighter. She loved cuddling on the couch and in bed with you and enjoys sunbathing a little each day. She does great with other dogs and kids. She is super sweet. Tessa is in need of FHO surgery and has online account where funds are being raised for her surgery.

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

I am currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and I am in need of a foster home or forever adoptive home.  By fostering or adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in my safe kennel. 

If you are interested in fostering or adopting, please come visit me at 4710 HWY 151 (Building One) at Animal Care Services in San Antonio, Texas.

To find out how you can get involved and help turn San Antonio into a no-kill city, please visit us at www.sanantoniopetsalive.org



 



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.

Email adopt@sanantoniopetsalive.org if you have any
questions.

If you are interested in fostering an animal, please visit our website and fill out our online Foster Application. The more foster homes we have the more animals we can pull off the euthanasia list and the more lives we can save together!
