Adopting A Friend

Thank you for considering adopting a rescue animal! Here are the steps you’ll need to take to adopt a dog from SAPA!

Step One: Find the Right Pet

Browse our dogs or cats online or come to one of our adoption events to meet them. If the animal is currently in foster care, we will put you in touch with the foster home and will setup a time for your potential pet and yourself to meet. Visit the Adoptable Dogs page for how to contact the foster parent.

We want to help you find the perfect animal for you. We will encourage you to spend a lot of time with your potential new pet and actually require that you spend at least 30 minutes with a pet before filling out an application.

Step Two: Adopt a Pet

Once you’ve found the right animal for you, you’re ready to adopt. In total, this process will take about an hour.

We are often running adoption specials! Make sure you ask if there are any adoption specials running when you adopt your new family member!


Who We Are

San Antonio Pets Alive! fills the gaps in the community by identifying the problems that leave dogs and cats euthanized at the shelter and creating innovative programs to overcome those specific problems. Currently, we are focused on rescuing the pets who end up at the shelter and helping keep pets from being surrendered to the shelter. While we believe strongly in spaying and neutering, San Antonio already has great programs for those services, so we are focused on helping the pets who have already been born get out or stay out of the kill shelters.
