    Please consider making a donation to our San Antonio Humane Society Emergency Fund to assist with the care of our animals and staff - we need your help now more than ever!


    April 23, 2020
    IMPORTANT UPDATE (click here for Spanish):

    With news about COVID-19 changing rapidly, we wanted to update you on our operations and how our pets are doing here at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS).

    As we continue to navigate through the challenges, one thing remains clear: We are fully committed to our mission of protecting and improving the lives of dogs and cats in our community.

    We at the SAHS are following CDC guidelines and are taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of any illness. Our essential staff is doing an exceptional job providing the necessary medical treatment, food, water, enrichment and loving care to our most vulnerable pets during this uncertain time.

    Although we remain closed to the general public, we have begun piloting a “no contact” adoption process to begin placing pets in homes as deemed necessary and essential.

    People, who are interested in adopting a pet(s), need to fill out an application on SAhumane.org/adopt and send an email to adoption@SAhumane.org (please include the name of the pet(s) and ID# on the subject line, as well as attach a government-issued ID and proof of residence). All the information will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis, and adoption interviews will take place over the phone.

    In addition to our “no contact” adoption process, we are planning to reopen our Brooks Spay/Neuter Clinic, located at 8034 City Base Landing, on April 27. We will be offering limited curbside services by appointment only.

    People will need to follow signage upon arrival and call without exiting their car. Wellness Clinics at Brooks will begin only on Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. starting May 2 until further notice. All payments must be made over the phone. Only credit cards will be accepted (no cash or checks). For more information, please call (210) 963-7150.

    Pre-existing customers can also buy preventative care products, including heartworm, flea and tick medications, for next day curbside pick-up (please give a 24-hour notice) at both locations. For our Fredericksburg location, please email requests to clinic@SAhumane.org and call (210) 226-7461 when you arrive to pick up your order. For our Brooks Spay/Neuter Clinic, please email requests to brooks@SAhumane.org and call (210) 963-7150 when you arrive to pick up your order. Please include the current weight of your pet(s) to ensure we provide the correct dose of medication. All orders can be picked up the day after the request was sent between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., and all payments must be made over the phone.

    Once again, we want to thank you, our valued supporters, for your patience and continued support. Your generosity helps us keep going during these challenging times.

    Please consider making a donation to our SAHS Emergency Fund today. Every dollar will help assist our operating costs and help provide lifesaving care for our pets in need. We need your help now more than ever.

    Lastly, I want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation closely and following the advice from public health officials. The health and wellbeing of our pets, our staff and the community we serve is always our top priority.

    Sincerely,

    Nancy F. May
    President/CEO

  • Capital Campaign

    Picture the Pawsibilities - Capital Campaign

    The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) has begun construction of a state-of-the-art medical building at its location on Fredericksburg Rd. that is estimated to provide services for 20,000 needy pets in our community.

    SAHS President/CEO, Nancy F. May, emphasized the significance of this construction project to a packed room during the SAHS’s 2019 Friends for Life Luncheon:

    “This expansion will increase our impact on the community’s injured and homeless pet population and be an essential resource for responsible pet owners in search of low-cost services.”

    The Leeu Naylor Medical Building will include surgical, orthopedic, and radiology suites, a rehabilitation room, and a medical clinic. In addition to the medical building expansion, the $10 million Picture the PAWsibilities Capital Campaign also includes renovations to the SAHS Education Building and Cat Pavilion.

    The SAHS has so far reached over 80 percent of its $10 million goal but is asking for the public’s help to raise the remaining funds needed for completion:

    “Although we’re currently limited by a lack of space and resources,” says Chief of Community Engagement, Traci B. Gomez, “thanks to contributions by many generous supporters and organizations in our city, we are on our way to saving the lives of thousands more dogs and cats.”

    Those interested in donating to the campaign, including those interested in learning more about naming opportunities at all levels, should email Traci B. Gomez, Chief of Community Engagement, at tbgomez@SAhumane.org.
