This important charity event is SNIPSA’s largest fundraiser to raise awareness about the plight of homeless dogs and cats in our area. Race for the Rescues is a pet-friendly 5k course beginning at the Alamo Heights swimming pool in San Antonio. You have the option to run/walk the race by yourself, with your dog(s) or in a team. All proceeds from the race support SNIPSA’s spay/neuter outreach in the community and provide veterinary care for our rescue animals. We invite you to bring your family, friends and - of course - your dog!
