Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
GaDaH prefers to keep adoptions local, however, finding the perfect family is what matters most. We have adopted dogs out in Houston, Dallas, Florida and Kansas, because we found the perfect families for our dogs.
Please note, that these families went the extra mile to show they was the perfect families, and all families came to San Antonio to meet the dogs before the adoption process began.
No dog / puppy will be "shipped" or transported to a family that they have not met with.
GaDaH works on getting the dogs both physically and mentally healthy, and to provide a loving, safe home, with training whilst in the search of finding their truly deserved forever home
GaDaH does not have a regular venue, however, we do attend most of the AAPAWS mega adoption events, and the yearly San Antonio PET EXPO's.
We enjoy bringing potential pets to your home, so that you can get more of a feel for the dog/puppy, and how it interacts with your family members.
For more information, please email
All dogs are to be part of the family and treated as such.
If you are looking for a guard dog, a protection dog, or just a dog to keep in your yard, then please reconsider the responsibilities of owning a dog.
Please go our website "www.giveadogahome-sanantonio.org" to download an application form.
Complete it and send it to "firstname.lastname@example.org" so arrangements can be made for a meet and great.
GaDaH will bring the potential adoptable pets to your home for a meet and greet, once the application, and references have been submitted.
The adoption process includes, but is not limited to:
A meet and greet
An in-depth application - download from website
A letter of reference from a current or former vet - on their letter headed paper
Two written references from people who know you and your family well - (not from family members).
A meet and greet on neutral ground with any other dogs
A home visit
A home visit with the dog/puppy
Potential adopters are encouraged to meet potential dogs/puppies as often as they like, and no rush decisions made. If after the above, both parties would like to go forward with an adoption, then a ONE-WEEK Temporary foster contract is completed, before any adoption process can be complete.
This is to ensure the potential adopters, and as equally important the dog/puppy, and GaDaH are all happy.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
