Are you looking to gain experience working in a non-profit? The San Antonio Humane Society is occasionally offering unpaid internships in multiple departments. These internships will help you acquire new skills in your field of interest, give you valuable work experience in a 501c non-profit organization, and have you working to help find homes for our San Antonio dogs and cats. To be an intern at the SAHS, it's required that you are also a volunteer with us. 

Please check back for internship opportunities.

Veterinary Training/Internship

Veterinary Students
SAHS is happy to host veterinary students in their clinical rotations at an accredited veterinary school. We recommend externship lengths of at least 3 weeks, with 2 weeks being the minimum time recommended for a good quality experience. We have also hosted students as long as 6 weeks. Students actively participate in high volume/high quality spay and neuter surgeries supervised by one or more of our shelter veterinarians, who will teach you the tools of the trade in HQHVSN. Shelter medicine will also be taught “hands on” as an integral part of the externship.

To be considered for an externship, please email proof of enrollment and why you desire an externship with the San Antonio Humane Society to our Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Kristine Hawkins at To maintain the highest quality externship experience, we will only accept one extern at a time, although there may be a day or so overlap occasionally due to semester requirements of different schools.

Veterinary Technician Students
Individuals 18 and over who have the desire to attend the Palo Alto College Veterinary Technology Program or a similar program can obtain their hours at the San Antonio Humane Society. We can facilitate the required volunteer hours prior to enrollment, or as an intern/externship during the program. As a pre-requisite, all individuals must attend a Volunteer Orientation and follow up meeting. To get started, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at:
