SAHS joins Clear the Shelters ‘Adopt and Donate’ campaign

The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) is once again teaming up with NBC and Telemundo stations to find loving homes for pets in need with the Clear The Shelters pet adoption campaign. To help individuals and communities continue to practice safe social distancing measures, the stations’ month-long “Adopt & Donate” effort will feature virtual pet adoptions and make it easy for people to donate online to participating shelters and rescues. The campaign runs from August 1 through August 31, 2020.

Throughout the campaign, the SAHS will continue its no-contact adoption process. Adopters can submit an online application at All applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Once submitted, adopters can email the name of pet(s) and ID# on the subject line and attach a government-issued ID and proof of residence. The adoption staff will then follow up with a phone interview, and once approved, the adopter can make an appointment to pick up their new pet.

To support the initiative, the SAHS will offer adoption specials all month long. Adopters can spin the “SAHS Adoption Wheel” to select their adoption discount! Discounts include 25 percent off the adoption fee, 50 percent off a Diane Bed, 25 percent off Purina food and much more. The FIRST 25 dog adoption will also receive a gift bundle.
