Reviews for San Antonio Humane Society

Rating: 5 stars  

SA Humane Society is a wonderful organization that provides a much needed and outstanding service to the community. The staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful. The facility is clean and welcoming. The grounds are lovely and relaxing. When I have a challenging day, I make it my business to stop by and just walk through the complex-always new fur babies as the adoption rate is high-and maybe take one for a little walk. Always feel better afterwards. A great place!

The San Antonio Humane Society is a shining example of a non-profit organization living their mission day-in and day-out. Our results are continuously monitored and reported, in an effort to keep all of us focused on specific goals and objectives, as well as holding everyone accountable for our results.

I have found serving on the Board to be a wonderful experience . We are a diverse group that bring a wide array of experience. Our time together in Board and Committee meetings is always well-organized, highly productive and efficient.

The last comment I would like to make is about our staff and volunteers. You are hard-pressed to find a team of employees and volunteers that are more proud of the facility they support and the service they provide. Visitors are always taken by the wonderful environment within which the San Antonio Humane Society connects friends for life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The organization is in great need of a hospital, in order to expand their capabilities.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
