My story

Meet Courage! This handsome 4-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix is originally from Louisiana, but he's looking to settle down in his forever home in Texas. We can tell by his beauty marks that Courage might not have always had the best life. But despite any rough times he may have faced, this happy boy is all smiles all the time! He's quiet and calm, and he just loves to be loved. Toys are the light of his life! Courage seeks them out everywhere he goes, and is perfectly happy to just settle down and play on his own when he finds his favorite one. Since he prefers to keep his toys to himself, Courage would do best as the only dog in his forever home and in a family with no kids under 12. Courage is Heartworm positive, but don't let that discourage you from adopting him, as he can continue his treatment at home with no additional cost. Courage is ready to be your most loyal companion, so come meet him at the SAHS today! Courage's adoption fee has been waived thanks to our Guardian Angel Fund. Our pet adoption screening process still applies.

Adoption Fees: Dogs 1 Year and over - $50, Puppy Under 1 Year - $135, Cats 1 Year and over - $35, Kittens Under 1 Year - $70. Please inquire about Ambassador fees and our Guardian Angel pets.

More about this shelter

Our Mission is to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay/neuter programs, and community education.

Our Vision is to end pet overpopulation and to create a community where every dog and cat is treated with respect and compassion and has a permanent and loving home.

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. The SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates thousands of dogs and cats every year. Many of the dogs and cats in our care have been abused, injured, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays. As a no-kill organization, every treatable pet in our care stays in our care until they find a home or necessary placement with another no-kill organization. No pet in our care is ever euthanized to create space. Thousands of dogs and cats in San Antonio and its surrounding areas are saved from euthanasia every year due to the mission and practices of the SAHS.

Through our adoption, volunteer, foster, spay/neuter, and educational programs, we inform and educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership. We serve as one of the largest dog and cat adoption organizations in San Antonio, Texas, helping to decrease the community’s large pet overpopulation problem in a humane manner. As a local nonprofit, we are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). We do not receive funding from the federal government, the HSUS, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

The most effective way to positively change your local community is by donating to your local nonprofit.
