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.







Hi! My name is Ziggy!! I am a good-natured, completely house-trained cattle dog mix - admirers mistake me for a McNab dog. I am approximately four years old and weigh about 45 pounds. I love going for walks, meeting new people and dogs, and binge-watching TV with my foster family. My foster family says I'm super-sweet and relaxed and they love giving me belly rubs. At my foster family's house I am the only dog and I think it's great not having to share space with annoying little dogs. I'm a little scared of thunderstorms so I love being comforted when I hear them. My favorite human wants me to sleep in her bed, but I'm happy to sleep on the floor, too. My people brag about how easy and cooperative I am. I know a few commands (sit and shake), and would happily learn whatever you want to teach me. Would you consider making me part of your family? 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.
