ADOPT A DOG
When you adopt a dog, you save a life.
Please have a look at all the amazing dogs we have for adoption in our centers and our foster program. If you would like more information on a pet found here please fill out an adoption application (filling this out does not secure an adoption) and a member of our adoption team will reach out. Be sure to include the pet’s name and ID# in the subject line. In the email please include your phone number and email address and someone will contact you as soon as possible. (Please allow 24 hours for return contact)
Take a look at our SAPA! Urgents and Adoptables Facebook page for dogs in immediate need of foster or adoption.
To see what each adoption requires and includes, please visit our Adopt page.
Adoption Application Disclaimer: Filling out the adoption application does NOT guarantee a hold or confirmation of adoption on the pet you applied for. All applications are reviewed and must be accepted by our trained counselors before a pet is adopted. Please allow 24-48 hours for our adoption team to contact you in regards to your application.
UPDATE: Hope is doing really well. She will do best in a home without other dogs or small children. Because she is blind, she can be frightened by too much commotion or noise and she's not able to tell when another dog just wants to play, or not.
Hope is a female, 2-year old Labrador Retriever blend. She is a complete sweetheart! She is great with other dogs and loves to play with them and loves her toys too. Hope was saved from euthanasia at the city shelter by San Antonio Pets Alive. Hope had been shot and had a severely injured hip. She was also malnourished. She went to a San Antonio Pets Alive foster home to gain needed weight. Once her bloodwork improved, along with gaining 15 lbs and energy, the veterinarian cleared Hope for surgery. She underwent a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO) - an orthopedic surgical procedure that helps restore pain-free mobility to her damaged hip due to the bullet that was found. She is recovering wonderfully and now looking for her forever home!
Updates from her foster home:
- She is a great eater and doesn't bark- she's a quiet one :)
- She has learned to walk on a lead well, and she loves sleeping on her bed or in the sunshine
- Her sight is not restored, but she does follow hand claps and comes when her name is called- very well!
- She is housebroken and enjoys relaxing in her kennel.
- She gets along great with the dogs in her foster home and would do wonderful with a "guide" dog friend of her own!
I am currently located in a San Antonio Pets Alive! foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of an additional pet who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested in adopting me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with my name and ID#. Please allow up to 24 hours to respond, as all fosters work on a volunteer basis.
