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.







We believe Sugar is about 4 yrs and she was a mother to 6 very healthy pups that have already found their forever home, it's now their mama's turn to find her "furever" home. Sugar is incredibly sweet and fun to have. She loves to hunt for flies in the house or in the backyard and is pretty good at catching them. Stuffed, squeaky toys are her weakness and the toys tremble with fear when she is around because she will find their center and rip it out. She is kennel trained and it is recommended that she continues to be in a kennel or locked into a room/ bathroom when you aren't home. She isn't destructive but she does like to climb onto things, such as counters or tables. Aside from being a toy murderer she is very sweet and has alot of energy, so she would be a great running partner. If you have a hyper dog or puppy and would like to get them a playmate, Sugar would be a great dog to have because she is very good with playful dogs. She thinks cats are big squeaky toys, because she likes to chase and nip them. She could potentially hurt them, so she might do best in a home without kitties. Sugar is very cute; however, she is going to have to gain the trust of her future owner which can take time but believe me when I say it is worth it. I am living 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 with my name and ID#. Please allow up to 24 hours to respond, as all fosters work on a volunteer basis.
