Care. Adopt. Neuter.

Alamo Area Partners for Alamo Welfare


Our Mission Statement The mission  of  Alamo  Area  Partners  for  Animal  Welfare  (AAPAW)  is  to   bring  animal  welfare  organizations,  veterinarians  and  the  community   together  in  partnership  to  improve  the  lives  of  animals  in  the  San  Antonio   area.     Since  AAPAW  began  organizing  Mega  Adoptions  in  December  2007,   thousands  of  San  Antonio'ʹs  finest,  but  homeless,  dogs  and  cats  have  been   adopted  at  these  events  through  its  member  organizations.  Mega   Adoption  Events  are  held  at  different  locations  in  San  Antonio   to   promote  AAPAW'ʹs  mission  of  finding  homes  for  every   adoptable  pet  to  help  achieve  No  Kill  in     San  Antonio.     2  


Adoptions In 2010,  1,034  pets  found  homes  through  eighteen   AAPAW  events.  Thanks  to  the  support  of  PetCo,   PetSmart,  Pets  Supplies  Plus  and  LifeTime  Fitness,   AAPAW  was  able  to  support  rescue  organizations  with   a  venue.  Through  these  partnerships  AAPAW  helped   place  many  adoptable  pets  in  loving  homes.   Community  support  continues  to  grow  and  on  July   30th  we  were  invited  to  participate  in  the  1st  Annual   San  Antonio  Pet  Expo  at  Freeman  Coliseum.  We   helped  organize  the  demos,   entertainment  and  adoption   Adoptions event.  There  were  99   1500 adoptions  at  this  event!  These   1000 efforts  helped  double   500 adoptions  in  2010  compared  to   0 2007 2008 2009 2010 2009.

Manu Ginobili & Ciru Many Ginobili  volunteered  to   film  Care,  Adopt,  Neuter   Public  Service  Announcements   with  his  dog,  Ciru,  for  AAPAW   in  May  2010.  

Care. Adopt. Neuter. AAPAW and  Manu  Ginobili  joined  forces  in  the  mission  to  improve   animal  welfare  by  helping  spread  the  message  on  the  importance  of  Care,   Adopt,  Neuter.   CARE  programs  consist  of  community  outreach  to  promote  responsible  pet   ownership,  including  training,  veterinary  care,  basic  levels  of  care,  pet  socialization   activities,  etc.  

ADOPT programs  include  our  Mega  Adoption  Events  where  hundreds  of   homeless,  abandoned  and  neglected  dogs  and  cats  can  be  showcased  and  find  their   fur-­‐‑ever  homes.    

NEUTER programs  include  education  and  promotion  of  spay/neuter  to  reduce  San   Antonio'ʹs  pet  overpopulation  problem,  preventing  the  births  of  any  more  unwanted   stray  dogs  and  cats  struggling  to  survive  in  our  city.

Happy Tails

NOELLE -­‐‑  This  beautiful  young   female  lab  mix  was  found  by  good   samaritans  just  before  Christmas.   Noelle'ʹs  tail  was  raw  and  exposed   and  she  had  already  lost  half  her  tail   due  to  a  recent  injury  and  had  a   broken  pelvis  as  well  as  a   bump/puncture  wound  on  the  top  of   her  head.  While  coordinating  a   rescue  to  sponsor  her  future  care  and  adoption,  AAPAW'ʹs  Emergency  Care  Fund   raised  the  funds  to  cover  the  two  surgeries  needed  to  amputate  her  tail  due  to   infection  and  the  medications.  She  then  developed  elevated  liver  values  and   suddenly  lost  her  vision  in  both  eyes  -­‐‑  all  between  Christmas  and  New  Year'ʹs   Day!  After  several  months  of  intense  veterinary  care,  her  second  foster  family   decided  they  could  not  bear  to  let  her  go  to  another  home  and  adopted  her.   Noelle  is  now  living  a  life  with  a  loving  family  after  a  very  stark  beginning.  

INDIA -­‐‑  This  young  injured   Dalmatian  was  found  by  a  good   samaritan  near  a  school  with  a   severely  injured  leg  and  also   suffering  from  mange.  A  message   was  sent  and  cross-­‐‑posted  for   rescue  assistance  and  volunteers   were  able  to  help  catch  the  dog   and  transport  her  to  a  vet  for   evaluation  AND  a  rescue  group   offered  to  sponsor  her  and  was  also  able  to  find  a  family  willing  to  adopt  this   dog,  now  named  India!     The  adoptive  family  contributed  toward  India'ʹs   surgery  and  care,  but  the  vet  expenses  were   extensive  and  they  were  unable  to  cover  the  entire   expense.    India  is  a  very  lucky  girl  to  have  had  so   many  people  come  to  her  assistance!     5

Tails of Success AAPAW started  development   of  its  new  web  site  to  better   meet  the  needs  of  the   community  and  members.  The   site  contains  Information  to   help  empower  the  community   to  become  more  involved  in   responsible  pet  ownership.  

Consolidation of  calendar  of  events  to  provide   more  information  about  not  only  AAPAW   events,  but  all  events  involving  animal  welfare   -­‐‑  including  s/n  clinics  and  vaccination  clinics.    

Several Task  Forces  were   formed  to  address  spay
