Startup kitten rescue orga­nization struggles to meet demand

Need for volu­nteers, foster homes for rescues

SAN ANTONIO - A startup kitten rescue group is struggling to meet the demand for its services during the busy breeding season when unwanted kittens are often dropped off at Animal Care Services by the boxfull.

The group, called San Antonio Pets Alive, currently has about 120 kittens that were saved from euthanization, but is having trouble keeping up with feeding and medical treatments, and is asking for volunteers from the community.

“We need as many as we can get,” said Holly Livermore, a spokeswoman for the SAPA. “We can't possibly have too many, because as we get more moved in, more settled a bit, our opportunities to save more animals are only going to grow.”

The organization is in need of not only volunteers, but also kitten milk replacement (KMR), dry food, and veterinary care, as well as foster homes for the rescued kittens.

Anyone interested in volunteering or fostering can contact San Antonio Pets Alive via email at or
