Pupdates: July 2022

As you have seen, there have unfortunately been MANY Code Reds in the last few weeks. SAPA! defines Code Red when 25 or more dogs and puppies are being released by San Antonio Animal Care Services for possible euthanasia due to lack of space. As a supporter of our organization, we believe it is important to inform you of the current situation in our city. Innocent puppies are being placed on this list in addition to healthy, adoptable dogs. Since the last week in June, we pulled eleven moms and their puppies into our care.

We hope to find fosters soon for these families.

Dear Lifesaving Friends,

This HOT weather has been absolutely relentless, not only in temperature but from the continuous stream of unwanted kittens and puppies being born in and around our community. I wrote an "I’m Scared" blog back in April about the number of puppies entering the municipal shelter, and it remains to be the same situation...two months later. My team is doing everything in its power to give these animals a fighting chance but there are many obstacles this year.
