Ever heard the term, never judge a book by its cover? The same can often be applied to shelter dogs. Never completely judge a shelter dog by their kennel behavior! Some dogs are simply stressed by the shelter environment, but once they are out and about it's easy to see who they truly are. Sasha is a very gentle and sweet 7-year-old girl. She enjoys going on walks, doesn't pull on her leash, and walks at a steady pace. She loves treats, attention, and showing off her best self (when away from the kennel).
Sasha came to the SAHS after being transferred from another rescue. Our partnerships include dozens of other shelters and rescue groups in our area. Transferring pets between shelters opens up space for more pets to be received and also helps hard-to-adopt pets find a new family in another community. The joint efforts of these collaborations and partnerships not only makes our community a more humane environment but also saves hundreds of pets who might otherwise face euthanasia due to overcrowding.
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, de-wormer, flea and heartworm prevention, complimentary wellness exam (within 5 days of adoption) and complimentary follow-up care (within 14 days of adoption) at any VCA animal hospital , and 30 days 24PetWatch Pet Insurance.
ADOPTED - Donut and Coffee
UPDATE: Donut and Coffee found their new family!
Donut and Coffee have Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH) or "Wobbly Cat Syndrome." CH is caused by an underdeveloped cerebellum and affects a cat’s balance and coordination. This is what causes their jerky or “wobbly” steps. They may trip and fall sometimes, but don't worry! This condition doesn't affect their lifespan and doesn't cause them any pain. Donut and Coffee are sweet kittens who love to play and receive attention. We are hoping they will find the perfect home together, and we're asking for your help to share their story and find them a forever family!
We're looking for adopters who either live in a one-story home or a two-story home with safety gates on stairs to prevent falls. Additionally, because CH cats are more vulnerable to predators, they must be indoor cats only.
Thank you Wayward Whiskers Cat Rescue for caring for Donut and Coffee until they were ready for adoption.
ADOPTED - Amelia
UPDATE: Amelia found her new family!
Amelia is currently our longest feline resident. She appreciates pets and affection, and is really looking to stretch her legs. She's a curious young lady! Amelia is not a fan of other cats and isn't super interested in being held or closely cuddled. But a good scratch and pet while couch-surfing will certainly be welcomed. She was found as a stray and brought to the San Antonio Humane Society so she could find her forever home. We hope Amelia will find her forever home soon! Amelia has a Guardian Angel. This means a generous donor has sponsored her adoption fee!
When meeting Amelia, please keep in mind that she is adjusting to everyday life in unfamiliar surroundings. Please forgive her if she can't seem to keep her attention on you: she may be nervous or distracted by other sights and smells.
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, fiv/felv test, de-wormer, flea prevention, complimentary wellness exam within the first 5 days of adoption, 14-day complimentary follow-up care at any VCA animal hospital, and 30 days 24PetWatch Pet Insurance,
ADOPTED - Tobias
Tobias is a very good boy! This young pup loves socializing with our volunteers, and he's hoping he'll bump into his new forever family soon. He's known to walk well on his leash and loves to have his belly scratched. He's super sweet, affectionate, and you are sure to fall in love with him fast! Tobias has also spent some time socializing in our doggie playgroups! This means he's able to get along with other friendly dogs. Tobias came to the San Antonio Humane Society as a transfer from another rescue. Transferring pets between shelters opens up space for more pets to be received and also helps hard-to-adopt pets find a new family in another community. According to his previous handlers, Tobias was bitten by a snake, which caused some trauma to his eye. He has undergone surgery to correct his injuries, and his eye appears to have returned to normal! Give Tobias a chance to show you some love! Visit him today.
