Kate to the rescue!
My name is Kate To The Rescue! My mission is life to rescue animals primarily from the streets of San Antonio TX! I then rehabilitate them and adopt them out to loving families!
I currently rent a 3,000 sq ft commercial space where I operate a cage-less (with the exception of at night when the dogs sleep in crates) animal rescue and rehab center!
I have informally rescued animals my whole life, but I was first inspired to help the street dogs and cats of San Antonio in 2008 after I first visited this Texas city. I was visiting a city park looking for the perfect picnic spot when I noticed dogs running loose in the park. Realizing that they were all strays I made up my mind that the next dog I saw I was going to save. I then turned a corner and saw my Ellie, she was a feral chow/akita mix. She was VERY fearful of people and it took some creative steps on my part to catch her but I refused to give up on her and finally got a leash around her neck! After I got her home I was surprised to find that Ellie was pregnant and she gave birth to 8 puppies nearly a month after I saved her from the streets!

During my visit to San Antonio I rescued another dog and a cat as well! I also learned that San Antonio has a very large stray dog population, reaching well over 100,000 dogs that live in the city streets and parks. It was then that I realized my mission in life is to save each and every one of these animals and give them the same loving home that I was providing for my newest dogs!
Since then I have gone on to specialize in capturing and rescuing feral street dogs and cats in need!

Now that I am following my heart and my passion in life I have been lead to many dogs and cats in need, by chance, by God or by accident, who knows but I know that I am on the right path in life!
I do my best to document my amazing animal rescue adventures whenever I can on video and you can check out my YouTube Channel to see more of what I do!
Thanks for your support!
