Shelter Information

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.

Meet Barry! When this sweet 3-year-old Retriever boy arrived at the SAHS, we noticed he had a painful neck injury caused by an embedded collar. Our clinic team instantly gave him the love and care he desperately needed. They used laser therapy and medical-grade honey to treat his wound and accelerate his healing. They also changed his neck bandages daily and spoiled him with extra treats! He's just a sweet, loving and grateful boy. He absolutely LOVES toys and treats! He's already stolen our hearts here at the SAHS and is ready to steal yours too! He's all better now and is ready to find his forever home. Barry is also Heartworm positive, but don't let that discourage you from adopting this sweet boy. He can continue his treatment in his new home. Will you give Barry the loving family he deserves? If so, adopt him today! Barry's adoption fee has been waived thanks to our Guardian Angel Fund.
