Serving the San Antonio community since 1952, the San Antonio Humane Society is committed to protecting and improving the lives of animals in the city. The shelter medically treats, shelters, and rehabilitates nearly 5,000 animals every year. They also provide educational programs for the community to teach the public the importance of responsible pet ownership, microchipping, and spaying/neutering.
Proudly the largest, open admission, municipal shelter in South Texas, the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services is a 14-acre campus that boasts a range of programs and services meant to encourage responsible pet ownership through the promotion and protection of the health, safety, and welfare of the pets of San Antonio. They offer a slew of services including adoption, pet search assistance, and affordable spaying and neutering.
San Antonio Pets Alive is another life-saving organization in the region. Launched in response to the devastating numbers of euthanasia in the city, the organization has saved over 35,000 dogs and cats! With a mission to save all the animals with no hope in the community, this organization offers a range of life-saving services. Those services include a neonatal kitten nursery for kittens too young to survive on their own, a parvo ward for puppies battling canine parvovirus, a ringworm ward, a medical clinic, and a transport program.
Since 1934, the Animal Defense League of Texas has been devoted to enhancing the quality of life of abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs and cats in the San Antonio community. In addition to providing food, shelter, and safety for these animals, the Defense League also offers complete medical treatment from a full-time veterinarian, including low cost spaying and neutering services. Their goal is to bring these animals back to health and find them a loving home while educating the community on humane and healthy pet ownership.
