San Antonio Pets Alive (SAPA) is looking for puppy fosters! Each year, we save hundreds of puppies from being euthanized at the city shelter by placing them in foster care. A foster home provides temporary care for an animal while they are waiting for their forever home. Foster responsibilities include housing, caring for, feeding, and - best of all - loving these puppies until they are adopted. SAPA provides all medical needs for each animal, including vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery, and gives ongoing foster support if you're new to puppy care. The puppies provide lots of love and snuggles.

We have puppies from just a couple of days old to a couple of months old. We can match you with a puppy to fit your lifestyle, and these playful puppies will be forever grateful to you for saving them!
