POPULATION SERVED
....................................................................................................
The HS/SPCA serves the Bexar county area covering 1,247 square miles with a population of 1.5 million people and San Antonio.

About Our Shelter:

Our mission at the Humane Society/SPCA of Bexar County is to be the community’s primary resource for promoting the humane treatment of companion animals by providing education and adoption services.


HISTORY
....................................................................................................
The HS/SPCA is a non-profit organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. In the past 50 years, the HS/SPCA has found homes for over 157,000 animals. We also help make our community a safer place by providing shelter for hundreds of lost pets and strays each year. Eighty percent of the animals at the HS/SPCA are pets that people have given up. Reasons vary as to why they surrender their pets; some owners move and do not want to take their animals with them, other pets are given up because owners get new furniture or carpet and don't want their pets to walk on them. The remaining 20% of animals in our shelter are either lost or abandoned pets or strays.


FUNDING
....................................................................................................
The HS/SPCA relies entirely on private donations, self-generated income (adoption and receiving fees), foundations and corporations for all funding. The HS/SPCA is not a branch of any national organization, such as the Humane Society of the United States, nor do we receive funds from any city, county, state or federal source.

Our Adoption Process:

Services Provided by the
Humane Society SPCA of Bexar County Include:

Pet Adoption Center
....................................................................................................
The Humane Society SPCA has many dogs, puppies, cats and kittens that are available for adoption. The adoption fee is $25-$125. This includes the cost of the animal's spay or neuter (all animals must have this surgery before going home), first set of vaccinations, bath, nail trim, de-wormer, flea medication, heartworm medication, heartworm test (for dogs over 7 months old), FLV/FIV Combo test for cats, collar and tag, microchip implantation and registration, 30 days of free pet insurance and a free bag of Science Diet Food. This is quite a bargain considering the cost of these services at any veterinarian's office.

We want to make sure that our furry friends go to loving and caring homes. We ask that you spend 20 - 30 minutes with the pet you would like to adopt to make sure that it is the right companion for you. All prospective new pet owners are then asked to complete an adoption application. Once the application is completed, an adoption counselor will talk to you about your application and about the pet you have chose to adopt. You must be approved by the adoption counselor in order to adopt. In most cases the pet will be spayed or neutered and ready to go home the day of adoption

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.
