Animals in Need

SA Pets Alive! Every year Chesmar Homes San Antonio donates food, medical supplies, toys, blankets and more to the local animal society in San Antonio. Chesmar’s commitment to help animals runs deep as well, with several associates fostering and securing forever homes for them. Executive Assistant, Misty Andrews’ efforts pretty much typify the mindset of the division. After seeing an online post about two-dozen puppies being abandoned, she jumped in to help out, taking in six to foster until they could be placed with new families.

Chessi, a miniature schnauzer had no idea what a lucky pup she was when Tammy Beene, closing manager at Chesmar Houston, with the help of new home consultant Alex Perez rescued her from a Chesmar job site. Capturing and nursing the animal back to health was a year-long process chronicled in social media, the company newsletter and eventually in Pet Talk magazine. Today Chessi (whose name is derived from Chesmar) is healthy, fully assimilated and enjoying a happy life with her forever family, thanks to Tammy’s care.
