Now I Must Go

Send me to the Bridge I pray
when I no longer run and play.
When my limbs can't bear my weight
and dignity is stripped by fate.

Look into my eyes, you'll find
I will let you know, it's time.
You must help me from this edge.
Now it's time, I make this pledge.

I leave you for the Bridge today.
Anew, I run, I bark, I play!
We shared a life of many things
and to your heart my leaving brings;
the pain of loss, I feel it too,
but Master, know, this I must do.

I must leave first, to make the way
for you to follow me someday.
Beyond the sunset, where all pain ends
we'll meet again, the best of friends.

Just as I snuggled in your heart,
you're in mine too, we aren't apart.
I watch you from afar and pray,
it's time to heal, heal some each day.

Please dry those tears and smile for me,
and know at last that I am free.
There is no pain or suffering here.
The sun shines brightly everywhere.

There isn't even one cross look,
it's not allowed here in His book.
No clouds of gray will gather here,
no storms will ever threaten.
We are at peace here,
and the Bridge is Heaven.

Meet Dasher

Dasher is a chained, starving, and very ill dog in the city's southside. We found him yesterday while distributing fliers for this Saturday's event. He is being rescued today; we are bringing him home, cleaning him up, and getting his initial vet care. We have had a wonderful outpouring of support from the animal rescue community. Updates to come soon.

The Big Fix, Round 2


What: Free Spay & Neuter Clinic

Where: St. Bonaventure Church, San Antonio, TX

When: Saturday, October 3 @ 7 am

Why: We are offering free services to an area where strays are most prevalent in the city.

How: This event is made possible by the efforts of dozens of volunteers committed to improving life of animals in the Alamo City. We have pre-registered 100 animals, and we are ready to rock & roll on Saturday!

Race for the Rescues '09: A Great Success!

There were nearly 1000 registered runners all gathered for a great cause last Saturday. It was a crazy busy day, but it was a very successful fundraiser for our furry friends. Kudos to the SNIPSA staff for all the effort they poured into this event!

New Fosters: Meet Jack & Jill

This is Jack.

This is Jack's sister, Jill.

Jack and Jill were strays who were found by one of Adam's co-workers. They are currently living with us. They are extremely sweet and well-mannered.
