San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA!) focuses on saving the lives of the dogs and cats already on the euthanasia list at the city shelter. In 2012, SAPA! launched its model of pulling animals who were kenneled, awaiting euthanasia, at the city shelter to save their lives. In its seventh-year history, SAPA! has saved the lives of over 40,000 dogs and cats. San Antonio now consistently realizes a save-rate in the 80 percentile; some months hit the 90 percent mark.
Volunteers are critical to the success of SAPA!, and SAPA! is critical to the success of making San Antonio no-kill. For a schedule of upcoming volunteer orientations, head here.
