Local Animal Rescue
If you are looking to add a furry friend to your family, we urge to make adoption your first option. There are many local animal rescue organizations and we've listed some below for you to consider.
San Antonio is working towards reaching the no-kill status but we have a way to go and your assistance is needed. Please be sure your pets are microchipped and have tags attached to their collar. Remember to keep them contained in your yard and always walk them on a leash.
