Rating: 5 stars  

They were so easy to work with and helped us find the new addition to our family. I appreciate everything the Humane Society does for all the pets. Already planning our next visit and next adoption with them!

Hello my name is Erica and I adopted a 1year old cat (Boo) now to my Lil family Spartan.. I would definitely adopt again from them... I went to 4 other places and nothing felt good about them but when I stepped in SAHS just felt right and there team helped me pick the perfect cat for my family due to I have a 3year old.. Spartan is one awesome lovable cat and will soon return to adopt another family pet...

They're absolutely incompetent and unfair. I came in wanting to adopt a puppy for $100 and came out owing about $2500 in vet bills!! The first day we adopted him we were told he was free of Illness so we took him home. The next day we hear a cry from the room and see that there's blood running down his legs. We rushed him to the emergency vet and come to realize we are repairing an injury that occurred due to a neutering procedure THEY had performed!! Absolutely ridiculous and they're only willing to pay us 300 dollars. How is that okay?? Definitely not returning and will trash talk the place any chance I get.

I love volunteering at SA Humane! The staff are always so friendly and appreciative of the help. I have a great time helping out and best of all working with the cute dogs and cats. It's hard work but I'm grateful for the opportunity to help out. The San Antonio Humane Society is a great non-profit doing amazing work in SA.

Volunteering for the SA Humane Society was the first thing I did after retiring. This is something I always wanted to do. I am a dog lover & have four that have rescued me. I would have more if I could. So I volunteer to take care of that need. I encourage everyone to volunteer if they have a love for animals. I love the animals & the staff is amazing. Watching them care deeply for each animal that arrives is truly a calling.

I am a busy young professional but my passion for helping humanity is met through volunteering at the San Antonio Humane Society. The SAHS is a model for a well-run, CLEAN, and community centered shelter. The animals are the priority. The kennels are roomy, climate controlled, well-kept, and the animals are socialized and given top-notch care.
And the staff is world-class - you can tell that every human being at the shelter truly cares about the dogs and the cats and the overall mission of SAHS.
The SAHS does good, hard work!

I have adopted 2 dogs from the SAHS, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a pet. They take such good care of all of the animals, and it is not your typical shelter. They genuinely care about the health and well-being of the animals. One of the most important things to me personally is that they are a no kill shelter. That means the world to me!

I have been volunteering at the San Antonio Humane Society for a number of years, and try to go once a week. It's a great place to volunteer! Everything is very clean, and the animals receive excellent care. I spend most of my time in the cattery, helping socialize the cats so their chances of finding a forever home are increased. By spending time nurturing these animals, I really feel like I am making a difference in the lives of these animals. There is no better feeling. It's exciting helping at one of San Antonio's no-kill shelters, and being an advocate for the animals.

I wanted to give locally, and after visiting the San Antonio Humane Society, the choice was easy. I found the SAHS staffed with wonderful people and selfless, caring volunteers. The grounds and buildings are well maintained and feel more like a "pet resort". Best of all are the sweet animals that are so well cared for and loved while they are waiting to find their forever homes. Thanks SAHS for all that you do!

I have been involved with the San Antonio Humane Society for basically my whole life. When I was little, my mother decided to get me a kitten. We went to many shelters and we couldn't find a place we trusted until the SAHS. I found my Lucky and a year later from the SAHS, my Maximus. Lucky lived a very good 7 years while Maximus is thriving now at almost 12 years old(in January 2015). The SAHS treat their animals like if they were their own. In the past few months I have started to volunteer with them and I have never seen a group of such committed and loving people. These people have a huge passion for these animals and show it in their time volunteering and fostering.
