Congratulations to the San Antonio Fire Department’s (SAFD) very own Arson K-9, Kai, for being named one of the eight finalists for the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards. Thanks to the public’s votes, Kai beat out more than a dozen other dogs to win the “Arson Dogs” category and she must now face off against the winners of the seven other categories. Voting is now open for the final round that will determine which heroic hound will be named this year’s American Hero Dog, at the fourth annual Hero Dog Awards in California.

Due to financial restrictions, NOWCastSA will be closed Monday, June 23 through Sunday, June 29, 2014.  All staff will be on furlough, except volunteer interns working on special projects. NOWCastSA has recently achieved amazing milestones. NOWCastSA's webcast of First Lady Michelle Obama's visit to College Signing Day on May 2 was so popular it was cross-posted on the White House Blog and temporarily broke our site.  NOWCastSA is on target to quadruple its donor base this year.
