Petco volunteers needed

We are currently looking for new Petco cleaner volunteers! SAFCC has been fortunate to have the donated space at various Petcos for our cat habitat, maintained by an all-volunteer staff. Petco provides the space, SAFCC provides the training and supplies, but the volunteers do all the cleaning and care of the cats while they are there. Volunteers dedicate 1-2 hours one day a week to clean and play with the cats. We are saving hundreds of lives and our Petco stores are a major reason we are able to pull kittens off the streets. We can only help them if we have volunteers that can feed and provide a clean environment. We promise spending an hour or two once a week with our adorable cats/kittens will make you happy! If you’re interested in becoming part of the team, please contact the person listed below for the designated locations:

Lorraine Cantu at for:
1) Petco-Village at Stone Oak 23014 US-281
2) Petco-Fiesta Trails 12651 Vance Jackson Rd.

Hope Soliz at for:
1) Petco-Terrell Plaza 1211 Austin Highway
2) Petco-La Plaza del Norte 125 NW Loop 410

The cat habitats provide a great opportunity to find families for our cats and also alleviate the strain of some from our fosters. Please help us to keep these habitats!

SAFCC volunteers rescue kittens from pipe

A call came in to the SAFCC helpline about kittens that were dumped at a bingo parlor. Something had scared them and they ran up a drain pipe at the back of the building. They got stuck and had been heard crying for almost four days! When SAFCC trapper Kay arrived 25 minutes after the call, she enlisted the help of neighbor Francisco. He carefully removed the lowest section of the pipe and turned it upside down into a waiting half-trap. One kitten came out! That night, Francisco found two other kittens hiding and waiting nearby for their brother. Trapper Gail retrieved them. The kitten that was stuck was the biggest of the three. All were accepted by the San Antonio Humane Society foster program. Thanks so much to our volunteers for going above and beyond to rescue these kittens and to partners like the San Antonio Humane Society for taking in these and so many other kittens that SAFCC rescues. Great job, everyone!

Free SAFCC Trap-Neuter-Return Classes Held Each Month

SAFCC runs free classes each month with the occasional “special” when requests are received. These classes are open to the public and are scheduled at various locations around San Antonio. After attending one free class (just one!) you will be able to borrow traps free of charge, gain access to subsidized surgeries, and even get volunteer help if necessary.

The information gained at the class is invaluable and expands your choices particularly if you do not happen to live in an area where grants for free or reduced cost surgeries are being provided at the moment. To see the complete list of classes and events visit our Calendar page. Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign in.
