Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the programs and services needed to eliminate the killing of at-risk animals due to lack of space, adopter or foster.


San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA!) was founded in 2012 to help address alarming euthanasia rates in the city. SAPA! is unique-it is the only high paced, high-volume rescue in San Antonio, saving 6,000 at-risk cats and dogs annually.

Since its inception, SAPA! has saved more than 47,000 dogs and cats. SAPA! provides safety nets for the dogs and cats that fall through the cracks of all other lifesaving options and end up on the euthanasia lists, often with just hours to be saved. SAPA! promotes the availability of these dogs and cats to other rescues, adopters and fosters.

San Antonio Pets Alive! by the Numbers:

  • Has saved more than 47,000 lives since its inception in 2012
  • Rescues around 6,000 animals from euthanasia every year
  • Transports more than 1,000 to new lives annually
  • Gives a second change to more than 500 puppies suffering from Parvovirus each year
  • Saves 1,000 orphaned kittens through its neonatal program each year

you would not believe how many kittens are at the Marbach site and need feeding,cleaning,loving,laundry needs doing,dishes and kitty boxs need washing.The kittens are delightful and it makes you feel happy and forefilled when you leave.They need help every hour of evey day.They also need help at The 151 location with the dogs.People have no idea how many animals are abandoned and need homes and love in san antonio.Go help its rewarding beyond words.
