Please meet Marsha, or as I call her “Mama”. I think she is a lab mix approximately 2 years old. She came to me straight off the euthanasia list on June 4th. She was so frail (skin & bones) and scared all alone in her kennel, covered in fleas. I brought her into my home that evening and let her rest all night. She looked so exhausted that she didn’t want to walk out to the grass for her potty break or lift her head to eat. I truly was worried about her.

Within the next few days, she began eating a little more and more. I began mixing in raw eggs and vitamins in her food and before I knew it, she had started to gain some weight. I began to see her personality start to shine through. It’s now been nearly three weeks. She has a small limp from a previous injury (it’s possible she may have been run over at one time), but it does not stop her from playing around with my other dogs. Her upper body is getting stronger every day and she is not the weak, wobbly and timid pup I first met.

I’ve learned that she is very bright too! She can use the doggy door, plays nice, no potty accidents, will sit for treats & give her paw. She just wants to find someone she can trust and who will love her for the rest of her puppy life. Marsha can be left outside, but she really does prefer to hang out in her kennel during the day. When supervised, we like to have her roaming around with the rest of us, although she really just prefers to hang out in her doggy bed and look cute.

Now that Marsha is getting her strength back, we encourage an adopter who is willing to help her release some of the energy she is starting to get back. She enjoys playing fetch and playfully rolling around with our other dogs. She is so grateful at a second chance in life and shows it every day by smothering us with kisses all day long if we let her.

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

She is currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and is in a foster home. By adopting her, you not only give her 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 Marsha, 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.
