San Antonio Humane Society
The San Antonio Humane Society’s Mission is to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay/neuter programs, and community education.
Their Vision is to end pet overpopulation and to create a community where every dog and cat is treated with respect and compassion and has a permanent and loving home.
The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. The SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates thousands of dogs and cats every year. Many of the dogs and cats in their care have been abused, injured, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays. As a no-kill organization, every treatable pet in their care stays in their care until they find a home or necessary placement with another no-kill organization. No pet in their care is ever euthanized to create space. Thousands of dogs and cats in San Antonio and its surrounding areas are saved from euthanasia every year due to the mission and practices of the SAHS.
Through their adoption, volunteer, foster, spay/neuter, and educational programs, they inform and educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership. They serve as one of the largest dog and cat adoption organizations in San Antonio, Texas, helping to decrease the community’s large pet overpopulation problem in a humane manner. As a local nonprofit, they are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). They do not receive funding from the federal government, the HSUS, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
