Thumbelina and Ezio have been kept together at one of the municipal shelters near San Antonio, Texas. Their status is listed as urgent, and they need someone to step up to help.

According to SAPA Urgents & Adoptable 616221 Thumbelina is a female who is about a year old, is heartworm negative and weighs 50 lbs. Ezio, 616220 and Thumbelina came in together. Ezio is a female, also about a year old, is heartworm negative and weighs 43 lbs.

Both dogs are at risk of being scheduled for euthanasia. The shelter evaluates space needed and plans accordingly.

San Antonio Pets Alive! is not the City of San Antonio municipal shelter. The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services is a municipal animal control shelter and is a government entity tasked with picking up stray animals that may pose a threat to public health and safety. San Antonio Animal Control Services (ACS) is funded with tax dollars paid by San Antonio residents.

San Antonio Pets Alive! is funded 100% by gifts from the public, foundation grants, adoption fees and has a contract with the City of San Antonio to receive $75 for each dog and cat saved. The organization relies on their donors, from all over the world, to pay employees and to continue their efforts to save dogs and cats that wind up on the ACS euthanasia list every single day.
