Just Like Our Dogs and Cats, We Are Locally Raised The San Antonio Humane Society is a locally raised and locally relevant non-profit organization. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or the ASPCA. We do not receive support from state or federal agencies. We rely on donations, grants and self-generate revenue to operate. Every dollar we raise helps our SAHS dogs and cats.
Our Dogs and Cats Are Valued Residents, We Are a No-Kill Shelter The San Antonio Humane Society is a “no-kill” shelter which maintains a 96% live release rate. We are committed to working in partnership with the city and other animal welfare organizations to fulfill our dream of making San Antonio a “no-kill” city. In October 2011, the San Antonio Humane Society began receiving on site at Animal Care Services. Since then, we have quadrupled the number of cats and dogstransferred from ACS. Our efforts helped raise the city’s live release rate to more than 58%. This is a dramatic increase from 11% just 5 years ago. This is one of many steps we have taken to see our dream of making San Antonio a no-kill city become a reality.
