Animal Defense League
October 27, 2014

The Animal Defense League is the greatest no-kill shelter on the planet! Not only have I adopted dogs and cats, I have also fostered kittens. ADL champions the animals that needs forever homes. Many of the animals have been abandoned or abused. Not only can you visit the ADL for your next best friend but you can also access their website at adltexas.org Everyday ADL performs miracles by taking in animals from the community and from ACS. Each animal is give. A wellness exam and medical treatment for any problems.

Please visit the ADL for your next dog or cat.

Animal Defense League
October 6, 2013

The Animal Defense League of San Antonio is the oldest and largest no-kill shelter in our city. It is the premier haven for the abandoned, abused, neglected and forgotten dogs and cats in our community. The Staff and Volunteers of ADL are dedicated to finding each resident its forever home, all the while taking care of its medical needs. The Staff and Volunteers serve as the voice for these animals that have no one and are completely dependent on the care given them at the Animals Defense League. The ADL works through grass-roots advocacy, education, legal intervention and rescue. The people at ADL enhance the quality of life for each resident until its adoptive home is found. I have never seen more compassion and effort given on a daily basis than I do at this shelter. Their willingness to help animals in need and animals in crisis is outstanding and should be applauded. They are making history as they are the leading advocates for dogs and cats in San Antonio. I encourage everyone to not only come and view the campus and all its residents but to donate to this worthwhile organization that champions such a great cause in our city.

Animal Defense League
August 22, 2011

The Animal Defense League (ADL) is the oldest NO-KILL shelter in San Antonio. Our tag line speaks volumes, "WE TAKE THEM IN. YOU TAKE THEM HOME." We strive to give all our animals the best opportunities to find their "forever home" thanks to our PHENOMENAL STAFF. We take in many animals that would be euthanized due to either a money issue or lack of a veterinarian being able to perform such high-end services. At ADL our mission is to serve as the "leading voice for dogs and cats in need." ONLY if a dog or cat is beyond medical treatment and is suffering, is euthanasia considered, otherwise, our animals are here for adoption or may live out their lives with us. I cannot say enough great things about the ADL and know first-hand as our dog, "Cricket" was adopted from there. Our animals are treated with the utmost care and our staff is unparalleled. We set record numbers everyday for the amount of animals we spay/neuter and we strive each day to help San Antonio reach its NO-KILL goal. We are a 501C3 and receive no government funding. ADL IS THE BEST SHELTER ON THE PLANET TO FIND YOUR NEXT BEST FRIEND. Please see our facility, first-hand, and know what I have said is true. Come visit us at 11300 Nacogdoches.
