San Antonio Pets Alive’s need for fosters continues as AC repairs are expected to take three weeks.

The nonprofit organization originally made a plea to the public for help after its AC unit went out at its West Side facility on July 3.

Cooling units and fans are being used to cool down the building, but the building is currently registering from 85 to 95 degrees due to the summer heat, officials said.

“SAPA! feels these conditions are unsuitable for housing dogs and would like to hold off on housing any animals in the building until the air conditioning unit is permanently fixed,” officials said.
