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.







Eso (Espresso) is a lab retriever mix with short hair. He's a very athletic dog, weighing only 45 lbs. He loves to run, play fetch and tug of war, and to play with other dogs. He's a bit socially awkward with dogs; he will bark a lot and growl, but, he just wants to play. Eso is a very intelligent dog. He knows how to sit, stay, lay down, when to go to his kennel, how to let you know he needs to go outside, and many more things. Another thing about Eso, is that he thinks he's a lap dog and loves to cuddle, so if you like your dogs to stay on the ground, Eso might not be for you. All in all, he would make a great addition to your family if you spend most of your time at home, love taking walks, playing outside, taking naps, and showering him with love and food. Espresso's adoption fee has been paid for by a fan! If you are interested in adopting or fostering me, please email with my name and ID#. 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.
