San Antonio, Texas - Pet Adoption
When you adopt a pet from a shelter or other rescue organization, you save a life. Out of the 8-10 million cats and dogs that entered shelters last year, more than half were euthanized, San Antonio Pets Alive! believes that they all deserve a second chance.

ADL began with just a few makeshift chicken-wire cages in response to a need to shelter stray and injured dogs and cats in the San Antonio area. Along with providing basic shelter and care, emphasis has always been placed on adopting animals to homes where they will receive loving care and attention for the rest of their lives. The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. Every year, the SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates approximately 5,000 animals. Many have been injured, abused, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays, and they remain in our care until adopted. Through our adoption, volunteer, foster, and educational programs, we remind the public of the importance of responsible pet ownership, microchipping, and spaying/neutering. As a no-kill organization, the SAHS saves healthy pets, as well as dogs and cats needing medical attention, with euthanasia reserved only for untreatable animals. While many believe that the SAHS is affiliated with and receives funds from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), this is not the case. Therefore, donating locally solves a local problem.This companion pet was saved from euthanasia by CARE in San Antonio, TX. CARE has been trying to save these very adoptable dogs and pups over 6 years. We have flown nearly 600 wonderful dogs and puppies to approved adopters in the US and Canada in the last year.Our goal at San Antonio Pets Alive! is to save homeless yet adoptable pets from needless euthanasia. We pull dogs and cats directly off of the city’s euthanasia list EVERYDAY. Our kennels are FULL of loving and wonderful pets who want nothing more than a home and people to LOVE. Another aspect of our rescue that sets us apart from the rest is we do not turn away an animal because of illness. We have cared for broken limbs, parvo, tick born diseases, distemper, mange and NUMEROUS other ailments that usually confirm a death sentence to an unfortunate cat or dog.
