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.







I qualify for San Antonio Pets Alive's Seniors for Seniors program ... my adoption fee is waived for an approved adopter at least 55 years of age! Hello, my name is Freeda. I am a healthy, middle-aged gal, and I get along great with dogs, cats, adults, and children! In fact, in my foster home, I'm surrounded by a lot of hustle and bustle, noisy grandchildren, and other animals, but I remain calm and relaxed through it all. The scars on my face indicate I had a hard life, but I'm focused on the here and now, and on the bright future I hope to have with a loving adopter. I am up-to-date on all vaccinations and preventatives, spayed, microchipped and I successfully completed heartworm treatment so I am heartworm negative! I weigh about 60 pounds and walk well on a leash when I'm wearing a harness. I enjoy car rides, too! If you'd like to add a faithful companion to your life, please consider me. As a bonus, I'm a great snuggler, too! 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.
