Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
The San Antonio Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no kill shelter that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. Every year, the SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates approximately 5,000 animals that have been injured, abused, owner surrendered, or found as strays until ready for adoption. As a no kill, adoption guarantee organization, SAHS saves both heal...thy and treatable dogs and cats with euthanasia reserved only for unhealthy and untreatable animals. Through our Volunteer, Foster Care, and Humane Education Programs such as Camp Humane, we educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership, micro-chipping and spaying/neutering. We offer adoptions and support the community’s No Kill Plan by transferring animals from the San Antonio and Bexar County government shelters. In the near future, we plan to expand our facility with a shelter medicine hospital for spay/neuter and treatment wards.
The San Antonio Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit no kill organization that relies entirely on donations, grants and self generated revenue to operate. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or ASPCA and does not receive support from the county, state or federal agencies

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
