Rescue Spotlight: Tejas Rescued Pet Adoptions

Based in San Antonio, TX, Tejas Rescued Pet Adoptions (TRPA) is a non-profit rescue organization staffed by volunteers dedicated to fostering and finding permanent homes for previously rescued, high-risk dogs and cats. They are not a shelter, but a network of private foster homes which help prepare the animal for adoption. The animal is spayed or neutered and provided with vaccinations and all necessary veterinary care to bring the animal to full health.

If you are interested in adopting, the TRPA website has a listing of adoptable dogs and cats, as well as an on-line adoption application to complete. Each adoptable pet will have a foster contact so you can arrange an appointment to visit your potential adoptee.

How else can you help? If you are not able to adopt, this group can always use foster volunteers to provide a temporary home for dogs and cats until they are adopted.  Tejas Rescued Pet Adoptions gratefully accepts monetary donations, which are tax-deductible.  You can also donate needed supplies such as dog and cat food. PetMeds was proud to help support TRPA with a donation of pet supplies.
