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.

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.







Whitney is the perfect girl! She loves car rides and walks at the park, but is also perfectly content to nap on the couch while you watch Netflix. She walks well on a leash and doesn't really react to other dogs or people nearby. Whitney is potty trained and does well in her kennel. She's a picky eater but will do anything for some cheese or a puppachino from Starbucks! If you're looking for a laid-back low-maintenance companion then Whitney is the gal for you! So far I am enjoying my stay with SAPA but I do dream about having my own place to call home and not having to share all my toys and sometimes I don't get to sleep with the same blanket every night. They say something about having to wash it but I like having my fur all over. I want to be first one out on potty breaks and not have to wait until my neighbor has finished, she takes forever. I want to have my play times to be all the time and not have to wait until it's my turn. I just want to be the center of attention. Is that so much to ask? I don't think so. Speaking of being center of attention. I do prefer having my human only focus on me. I don't know why but for some reason I just don't like hanging out with my canine housemates at Petco. I just like doing my own thing. Maybe I will find a friend who plays the way I like and we can share walks with each other but I would need to meet them first. I have heard from a few human friends that I can be a lot to handle but it's because I am very strong. What can I say? I play hard. If you are not paying attention I will jump up to get your attention. I can work on that but I just need a little help from you and all the love you can give me. Whitney was recently taken out on a "staycation". This is what her host had to say about her: "She is a sweet girl. She walked well on her leash and never pulled when we stopped for a break or to let other hikers pass by. She seemed a little nervous of large male dogs and would back away, but most dogs she walked right on by. She hopped right in the car and went into her kennel, no problem. She also made sure to use the bathroom before and after the kennel."

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 a San Antonio Pets Alive adoption center.
