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 Brody! The more we get to know this handsome Pit Bull Terrier boy, the more we fall in love! He's an energetic pup ready to be your new buddy! He loves to explore and learn new tricks, especially when he's rewarded with treats. We do recommend a Freedom Harness to walk him as he is strong and can pull. He knows how to "sit" and loves to meet new people! He has recently added "down" to his resumé. He loves to play and gets along with other dogs. Because of his high energy personality, a dog introduction is required if there is another dog in the same household. He is still learning his manners and commands, but he is making good progress thanks to the help of our amazing volunteers. When he is off-leash in the play yard, he LOVES chasing tennis balls one after the other until he finally calls for a time-out, and then, he's all in for belly rubs! Will you be his new family?

Meet Checker! This 8-year-old Retriever boy hopes to settle down in a calm and patient home, where he can receive all the love and attention he deserves. Due to unfortunate circumstances, his previous owner could no longer care for him, and sadly, the change of environment has caused him to become timid and anxious. We are currently working on building his confidence so he can feel safe and comfortable. After sitting down with him and offering plenty of treats, this handsome boy begins to warm up. Once he's relaxed, he becomes so loving and will give you plenty of kisses! He loves to receive back scratches and will be the best cuddler. Will you give him the home he deserves?

You might think this handsome American Pit Bull Terrier is looking for romance...but he's actually looking for a loving home to call his own! He would thrive in a home with kids older than 12. Fabio was one of the many pets rescued from hurricane season last August and hopes to find his FUR-ever family soon. He enjoys his daily walks in his Freedom harness (he's a strong boy!) and loves to shred all of his enrichment activities. He loves playing the "trade game" when it comes to his toys. He is a fan of all toys so having different kinds of toys of sounds and texture will keep him having fun all day. He is currently getting better at learning how to play fetch and knows how to do a good sit. He is highly treat motivated so luring him with a treat to get a toy from him works as well. He loves new scenery and LOVES all kinds of music! You can play your favorite song or two and he will just vibe and listen to the new beat. Fabio is such a special boy, so special that you will get to have a consultation with our dog trainer to learn more about his behavior and personality traits. Will you be Fabio's new best friend?
