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.







Panda is about 1 year old. He is in a foster home with patient people who have allowed him to acclimate at his own speed. He was initially a shy boy who has already come a long way, learning to trust and to give and receive love. He will do best in a more quiet home with no children. So far, Panda appears to be house-trained. He loves to cuddle and snuggle! He can fetch, and will bring you his toy when he wants to play. He is a toy hoarder!! He tolerates other dogs, as long as they do not have "in your face" personalities. He seems a little frightened of large dogs. He does ok with other dogs as long as they respect his space. Panda needs an environment where he can have his space, but interact as well. His energy level is low key. He is still skittish - sudden moves scare him. He does not like anyone in his face, unless he initiates kisses. He must go to a home with no children. 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.
