$25K Match Challenge For Heartworm Treatments

Love is in the air at San Antonio Pets Alive! In the spirit of Cupid’s favorite holiday, an anonymous donor with a huge heart has offered to match all donations for heartworm treatments made between February 1st and Valentine’s Day (up to $25,000). Donations will help save the lives of all our dogs that have tested positive for heartworms, including this adorable senior Border Collie blend named Lou.


The average cost of care and treatment for a heartworm positive dog is $150. In 2014, SAPA! took in more than 100 heartworm positive dogs like Lou, with new ones coming through our doors almost every day. Heartworm disease is curable with the proper treatment, but without it many of these dogs won’t be able to survive.

Heartworm positive dogs have a considerably longer wait to find a home because of the cost and stigma they carry with them. Gifts during the match challenge will not only be doubled, but will help these deserving dogs become more adoptable and eventually find their way into a forever home. $50,000 will allow SAPA! to save countless lives through emergency medical care, starting by funding treatment for ALL heartworm positive dogs in 2015!

Our generous donor will double every donation made through February 14th. DONATE NOW to help give Lou and our other heartworm positive dogs a second chance at life!

Kids, Pets and Giving Back!

Looming for Pets is a non-profit organization started by Mykenna, Makalyn, and Nathan Dinger to raise money for orphaned animals in need. The club makes and sells loomed jewelry and donates 100% of the proceeds to SAPA! In an effort to raise more funds and invite new members, the club hosted Picnic at the Petco Pavilion at the Paul Jolly Adoption Center on February 15th. Children from all over the city came out to show their support and donate the funds they had raised from their sales. The group was able to raise over $1,300 at the event and has donated over $1,500 total to SAPA! We are so excited to have the support of this group and to see the youth of San Antonio coming together to give back to their community.The group plans to sponsor a kennel and continue raising funds for animals in need.
