Tribute Bricks
At the San Antonio Humane Society entrance, you will see a brick path. Each brick is a flagstone; a permanent tribute by those who wish to honor or remember a loved one or special pet, mark an important occasion, or simply demonstrate their love of animals and show their support for our life-saving work

Memorial or Honorarium
A memorial is a way to show a loved one you will never forget.

An Honorarium is a gift in honor of a loved one who is celebrating a special occasion or someone who has passed away. You can make a honorarium gift in name of your father’s birthday, your sister’s wedding, or to honor your pet.

Tribute Tags
Two memorial sitting areas adorn our courtyard--a life-sized chair and love seat, made completely of concrete. Beloved SAHS alumni adorn both sculptures: Marlow, a sweet Great Dane mix, and Tommy and Turtle, two feral cats that you may see scampering around the grounds!

These sculptures contain hundreds of indentations to permanently affix Tribute Tags, 1.5" pet tags that serve as honorariums and memorials. They are a lovely way to pay respect to a loved one, remember a special pet, or to commemorate a special occasion.

These gifts to remember or honor someone will help us to provide for the pets in our community.
