Upcoming San Antonio Pet Adoption Events 

Well, since we've talked about opportunities to go green with your pets, let's talk about other pet pawsibilities--like adoption events.

My friend Gavin Nichols aka the no kill guy, sent me a list of scheduled adoption events hosted by Animal Care Services (ACS). The purpose behind the adoption events is to give a dog or cat a loving home rather than the sad alternative. There's a lot of discussion about whether or not San Antonio can become a "no kill" city even though ACS and many of the area animal welfare agencies have done a bang-up job trying. I'm not getting into that here. But, I do want to let you know about the following events because I think they help make a difference:
