Director of Operations at San Antonio Pets Alive!
Clare Callison started working in San Antonio rescue in 2008, and was hired on as the Foster Coordinator at the San Antonio Animal Care Services in 2007. The live release rate was only at 29%, and she quickly helped develop a Foster program in order to help improve the situation for San Antonio pets. In her role, she became dedicated to marketing the dogs solely on the euthanasia list, so it was a natural fit to join San Antonio Pets Alive when it formed in 2012.
She worked as the Live Release Manager, and then to Director of Operations in 2015. In her current role, she oversees the lifesaving operations for all of the SA Pets Alive teams including: Intake, Adoptions, Transport, Medical and the mass marketing of animals on the urgents list. Since 2015, Clare helped create the largest northern rescue transport program for dogs in San Antonio. Although there’s a long way to go, SA Pets Alive is the city’s biggest rescue partner, which has helped the community achieve an 89-90% live release rate.
