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.







Meet Fanny, She is a 1 year old Black mouth cur with sad puppy dog eyes and adorable white fur-lined socks on her paws. If her foster mom could name her, she would call her "Whippet" as when she is excited to see you, her long tail wags so fast and is so strong that it looks like a whip hitting whatever is around her. Fanny would be perfect for a family with children that can give her the exercise and attention she needs. She is also good with other dogs. She loves to wrestle with her pal Precious until they get worn out and then will sleep curled up next to each other. She is very much a curious puppy with lots of energy and has learned sit but we are working on other commands. She likes to be near her humans consistently whether at your feet if working on your computer, or following you around the house to see what you are up to. Please help Fanny find her forever home. 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.
