Established in 2012, San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA!) is a 501I(3) nonprofit organization created specifically to work in partnership with San Antonio Animal Care Services to reduce the number of dogs and cats killed in San Antonio.
The only organization of its kind in San Antonio, SAPA! has saved more than 47,000 dogs and cats slated for euthanasia at the city shelter. Our programs save the kinds of pets that take a little more work to make ready for adoption: puppies with parvovirus, neonatal kittens, cats with ringworm, and dogs with behavior issues. Our goal is to continue to create new programs for at-risk populations until every animal that can be saved is saved.
