SAPA! waiving dog adoption fees for one week in September

The dogs have been prepped and vaccinated, and are just waiting for a loving family to take them in.

SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio families looking to give a furry companion a home for the holiday season won't have to pay an adoption fee if they connect with a dog at a San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA!) shelter this month. 

From Saturday until Sept. 24, SAPA! officials are waiving those fees and instead asking for a minimum $10 donation to bring home a new pet from any of its three locations:

  • SAPS! Rescue Center (4710 Highway 151 Building #1)
  • SAPA! Medical Care Center (9107 Marbach Road, Suite 109)
  • Petco Love Adoption Center (6001 NW Loop 410, Suite 103)

Taking advantage of the deal means not only bringing a furr-ever companion home, but freeing up vital kennel space for others who need shelter. 

SAPA! says all dogs up for adoption at its facilities have been vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and treated for flea prevention and heartworm. Among those listed online as being available for adoption this week: a 2-year-old Husky/blue heeler mix named Maya, a 1-year-old shepherd named Jeepers and an even younger Terrier pup named Douglas

The deal applies only to dogs.
