San Antonio Pets Alive! has partnered with Dog is My Co-Pilot to transport dogs to states where there is a shortage of adoptable pets.
SAN ANTONIO – More than a dozen dogs took off Sunday morning from an airport in San Marcos. The puppies are heading west in hopes of finding a forever home.
It is a long but saving journey.
“We actually had 14 dogs, all of which would have been euthanized if San Antonio Pets Alive!
The program called “Headed Home” transports animals to other states where there is a shortage of adoptable dogs.
“We are constantly working on every angle possible to find a placement, whether it’s adoption, foster care, transfer to one of our amazing rescue partners, whatever it’s about getting them on a transport to get to a state that doesn’t. “I don’t have the same issues we have with pet overcrowding,” Powell said.
Powell said their facilities were all full.
“It’s a real fight right now. We’re at full capacity at each of our sites, if not overcapacity, so we definitely need all the help we can get right now, “said Powell.
Even though these animals have a chance to have a new life, there are plenty more waiting here in San Antonio, waiting for a forever home.
This is why SAPA offers a special adoption event happening right now.
“This is our five-dollar, one-foot-long adoption special,” said Powell.
Dogs 12 inches or taller can be adopted for just $ 5.
“It’s really to bring the community to meet these amazing animals, find that perfect family member who just clicks with you and bring them home,” Powell said.
