Senior Sweethearts

Boy, do we have some sweet seniors at SNIPSA! Just like fine wine, these dogs only get better as they age. Now, while these canines might lack the typical puppy charm, they make up for it tenfold with their great manners, loyalty and unconditional love. If you've got a heart for pups with a little extra life experience, don't miss out on your opportunity to adopt a senior dog. These guys are EASY and simply seek a comfortable home where they can live out the rest of their years in peace. Click the link below to check out our selection of mature mutts.

Pet of the Week


I can’t fight this feeling, deep inside of me! Girl, you just don’t realize, what you do to me! Wowee is this little guardian of the galaxy just as cute as can be! We are high on believin’ that you will fall in love with Mantis faster than you can soar across the galaxy. Initially hailing from a litter of five, Mantis is the last one left. This San Antonio special might not be purebred, but she sure has a pure heart. As a Cattle Dog mix, you can anticipate Mantis to be full of energy, brains and loyalty. Originally bred as herding dogs, Cattle Dogs benefit from having a job to do so it is important that these pups are both mentally and physically stimulated. Despite her mysterious background, this pup is happy, curious and loving. She enjoys the company of humans and she prefers to be involved with whatever you are doing. So, if you’re looking for a new member of the family who is out of this world, then submit an application to meet Mantis today!
