So, stop on by to train a virtual dog, clock your running speed against the world’s fastest canine, explore various careers that involve dogs, find your pup-fect match and more!

Think Your Dog is Super?!

As summer approaches, we are looking for HOT DOGS to compete for the title of SNIPSA's 2024 Face of the Race. If your pet has been waiting for their chance at celebrity-status stardom, they'll be excited to know that registration is officially open!

The Face of the Race will be awarded to the pet that raises the most funds for homeless animals in San Antonio. Just register your pet as a contestant and we will notify you at the end of the submission date with your their website link to start your individual campaign and fundraising efforts.

** As part of our mission, we do ask that entrants be spayed or neutered. All entry fees and proceeds benefit SNIPSA rescues in need of specialized care and spay/neuter services. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on June 30th. **

Pet of the Week


Lou, Lou the friendliest dude! The more you love him the more he blooms! Meet Lou, a big boy with an even bigger heart. Lou was rescued after being left behind at a boarding facility. This sweet guy was housed and cared for until it was time to make the journey over to SNIPSA. Despite his rough start, he certainly has not lost his spirit. Lou has adjusted well to his foster home as he lives peacefully amongst two other canines. Lou has already mastered the art of potty training, so you get to skip right past one of the hardest parts! Additionally, Lou LOVES his crate! He sleeps in it happily at night and while his foster dad runs errands. He even puts himself in his crate for his afternoon siestas! Now, the most important thing to know about Lou is that he is an absolute sucker for belly rubs! Any chance he gets, he throws himself on the floor in hopes that someone will rub his belly! As a large Australian Shepherd mix, Lou would benefit from an active lifestyle in a home with a good amount of space to get adequate exercise. He would be the perfect candidate for someone searching for a running or hiking partner. So, if you need a new adventure buddy, submit an application to meet Lou today!
