SAN ANTONIO (April 29, 2022) – Warmer weather always means an increase in the number of pets entering local shelters. That’s why San Antonio Animal Care Services (SAACS) and San Antonio Pets Alive! (SAPA!) are joining the BISSELL Pet Foundation for a marathon placement party aimed at finding homes for as many dogs and cats ready for adoption as possible. Dogs and cats can be adopted for just $25 during Empty the Shelters which runs May 2-15. Adoptions at each event are first come, first served and each organization’s processes and policies apply.
