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.







Dorothy is around 3 years old and weighs 39 lbs. Miss Dorothy is both so eager for love and so afraid to receive it. Her sweet internal conflict between snuggling and hiding is both heartbreaking and inspiring - whatever she's been through, her want for love is still there. Earning her trust will be such a reward for both her and her forever family, and there is no doubt she will get there. She's already made great strides in foster care. What a brave little spirit. Dorothy is a darling 39 pound bundle of oh-so-soft auburn fluff with freckles on her tongue and a beautiful little face. She is potty trained and is perfectly silent. She hasn't yet met the other dogs in the house or our toddler, but she was formerly crated at Animal Care Services with other pups and was great with them. She's shown no aggression whatsoever. She is gentle, sweet, and those adoring eyes will melt your heart. Dorothy hasn't had the chance yet to learn there's no place like home. Will you be the one to show her? I am currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive! and I am in a foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out the adoption application found on the website at After we pre-screen your application we will connect you with the pet. Send an e-mail to with pet's name and ID# for other questions. Please allow us up to 24 hours to respond because all fosters work with us on a volunteer basis.
