We’re Sponsoring a Shelter Dog Kennel!

Thanks to your purchases in our PawZaar store, we’re so excited to announce that the PawZaar community is sponsoring a dog kennel (and a cat kennel) at the Animal League of Texas for the next six months!

This coming week we’ll find out just which dog is in our kennel, one of the 400 animals cared for at any one time by this no-kill shelter in San Antonio. The shelter, which has a 12-acre campus at 11300 Nacogdoches Road as well as the new Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions in Brackenridge Park, has a full-time vet on staff to provide whatever veterinary assistance is needed by the animals in their care.

With the warm weather in San Antonio, the shelter sees many dogs come in heartworm positive, and they work to treat these dogs as they await for homes:

We need your help to find 2-week foster homes for these adult dogs. They are heartworm positive and typically we would start them on treatment to rid them of these parasites. The issue we are facing is a 2-week delay in the shipment of the medication, and that would leave them being held in our hospital during those 2-weeks. If you could help us by fostering one of these dogs, that will keep those kennels empty so that we can continue to save more lives. We will supply food, bedding, and anything else they might need while staying in your home. Questions? Interested in fostering? Contact our foster team by emailing foster@adltexas.org or call 210-655-1481 ext 123. You can also comment below and we'll try to answer any questions as soon as we can.

They also provide low-cost spay and neuter surgeries and humane education programs in local schools.

When the dog who’s residing in the kennel we’re sponsoring is adopted, we’ll be assigned a new dog, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on each dog’s progress as they await a forever home. We can’t wait to learn which dog we’ll all be sponsoring next week and hopefully we can all share photos and stories on social media to help find this dog a new forever home!
