SAN ANTONIO — 30 dogs who would have been euthanized in a San Antonio shelter will get a second chance next week.

San Antonio Pets Alive! will transport 30 dogs to Arizona on Monday, May 13. These dogs were previously on the city of San Antonio Animal Care Services euthanasia list. San Antonio Pets Alive! said Arizona has a greater demand for dogs than San Antonio, where overpopulation is a problem.

San Antonio Pets Alive! is asking the community to sponsor a dog to help cover the cost to transport them to Arizona. Funds have already been raised for some of the dogs, but several dogs still need to be sponsored.

The trip is part of San Antonio Pets Alive!’s Headin’ Home transport program. The program fights San Antonio’s overpopulation program by bringing healthy, loving dogs from the city’s shelter to no-kill shelters in communities who do not have pet overpopulation problems. Dogs transported usually get adopted within two weeks, where as they may have spent months in shelters in San Antonio.

The community can donate transport fees for these dogs, which, in turn, opens up kennels to save another dog. $100 covers the fees needed to save a dog and transport it to safety, San Antonio Pets Alive! said.
