The San Antonio Humane Society was incredibly helpful in assisting me in selecting a forever fur friend. Their animals are clean, healthy, and well loved by the volunteers taking care of them. Adopting from them was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend anyone looking for a new pet or a place to show support for check them out.- Christina Guerra

This place is like no other shelter. Not only are they a no-kill shelter, it is incredibly clean and the animals are very well taken care of. The kennel techs assist in helping you find the dog or cat that is best suited to your family or needs. All of my family has adopted from here just within the last two years and we are all happy with our experience and our companion pets.

My husband and I visited the San Antonio Humane Society on 5/12/2017 and immediately bonded with Blue, a 3 month old hound mix. He has bonded with our family pack and is best buds with our other hound mix street rescue, Bones.

We also adopted our eldest senior pack member from San Antonio Humane Society 11 years ago. Here are pictures of our pack at play in the back yard!

I spent time here volunteering while I was in nursing school. I got to volunteer wherever I wanted for the day which was often where I was needed per my choice. Walking the dogs, I fell in love with one particular hound dog and had to take her home. Together, we made a guest appearance on TV promoting Paws on the Patio. She's been with me for 8 years now. SAHS is a fantastic organization to volunteer with. The sky is the limit with SAHS. Use your talents and time to help care for the sweet animals.

My whole family are believers in adoptions, we all have wonderful doggie fur babies that we have all adopted, my little boy baby came from an abused home and has so much love he gives to us everyday, he has turned into one of the joy of our lives, he is lovable and funny and after two years still has a few social issues he is trying to overcome, like going after peoples toes, but that is only if he doesn't know them, then he will turn around and jump up in their laps for non stop petting. Our family has adopted, young to old and cannot think of a batter way to get a new member in the family. These dogs are so grateful and show it everyday. He responds under different names but we usually call him bubba. He is part shelty and part Llasa Apso. I feel mixed breeds are so much more healthy, my little girl Priscella is shitzu and chiwahawa and she runs the house, her name fits her personality perfectly. I will alway adopt, my sister adopts, my grown kids adopt and my mother adopts, what this shelter does is provides so much for these animals, if I worked there i would be taking them all home, but Priscella won't allow that! Please adopt, the rewards are so worth it. I will never get another (grown) baby any other way!

I adopted my Pepe in March 2009 while on my post deployment R&R from Afghanistan. We then road tripped to Fort Bragg NC, till I returned back home in San Antonio. Pepe is my world and I owe it to the Humane Society of San Antonio for connecting us. Thank you!

I adopted Dino and Barney together from SA Humane Society, as they were inseparable. It was clear how much they love each other and wanted to stay together. They have brought so much joy and love to me , my family and friends. Thank you for how helpful and nice everyone was during the adoption process and thank you for my little angels!

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!

I adopted a lab mix many years ago and had the angel for almost 14 years. I adopted a Lhasa Apso later and had her for many years. The personnel there were very helpful and caring. They do a wonderful job. Adopting is the best way.
