Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay and neuter programs, and community education.
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.
Every year, the SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates approximately 5,000 animals. Many have been injured, abused, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays, and they remain in our care until adopted. Through our adoption, volunteer, foster, and educational programs, we remind the public of the importance of responsible pet ownership, microchipping, and spaying/neutering.
While the SAHS does save healthy and readily-adoptable pets, we also save dogs and cats needing medical attention (such as pets with broken/amputated limbs or pets with fungal infections) reserving euthanasia only for un-treatable animals. While many believe that the SAHS is affiliated with and receives funds from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the truth is this is not the case. We rely on the generosity of our community to help us continue our mission to help the pets of San Antonio, and we believe donating locally helps solve a local problem.
