Dog Boarding in Balcones Heights

In the city of Balcones Heights, whenever an animal falls on hard times, there are always plenty of local animal welfare groups ready to offer help, hope, and love.

San Antonio Humane Society is just one of those organizations. Founded in 1952, this non-profit operates on a no-kill philosophy and serves the animals of Bexar County and surrounding areas. The society provides shelter, treatment, and rehabilitation to around 5,000 animals each year, giving abused, abandoned, injured and stray dogs the care they need until they can be adopted into loving homes.

As the San Antonio Humane Society is a no-kill organization, it not only saves healthy animals but also dogs and cats needing medical attention. However, as it doesn’t receive any funding from national humane associations, it relies heavily on local donations to continue helping the animals that need it most.

SNIPSA is another organization dedicated to helping San Antonio’s homeless and unwanted animals. Formed by a group of veterinarians and other animal lovers, the group does not have its own shelter and depends on dedicated foster carers to provide the love and nurturing that rescued animals need.

This foster-based approach ensures that the organization develops an in-depth understanding of each animal’s needs and behaviour, and can then match it with the perfect permanent owner. Since it was incorporated in 2006, SNIPSA has rehomed more than 8,500 animals, so it’s very much deserving of recognition and ongoing support. Donations, offers of volunteer help, and new foster carers are always welcome, so feel free to lend a hand if you can.
