Keeping our furry friends out of harm’s way, San Antonio Pets Alive! ensures dogs and cats evade or be removed from kill shelters by offering pet adoption, pet fostering, one-time or monthly donating and volunteer services. Since January 2012, the program has rescued more than 10,000 animals, and another 3,000 pets at the new Paul Jolly Adoption Center, across from the SA Zoo, are expected to find new homes yearly. Readers give our resident pet rescuers two (opposable) thumbs up!
