Sobre Nosotros

Nuestra Misión es proteger y mejorar la vida de los perros y gatos proporcionando refugio, cuidado, adopción, rescate, programas de esterilización/castración y educación comunitaria.

Nuestra Visión es terminar con la sobrepoblación de mascotas y crear una comunidad en donde cada perro y gato sea tratado con respeto y compasión y tenga un hogar permanente y amoroso.

La San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS, por sus siglas en inglés) es una organización sin fines de lucro 501(c)(3) - que no mata animales – y que ha prestado servicios al condado de Bexar y sus alrededores desde 1952. El SAHS alberga, trata médicamente y rehabilita a miles de perros y gatos cada año. Muchos de los perros y gatos en nuestro cuidado han sido maltratados, heridos, entregados por sus dueños o encontrados en la calle. Como una organización que no mata animales, cada mascota tratable bajo nuestro cuidado permanece bajo nuestro cuidado hasta que encuentre un hogar o la colocación necesaria con otra organización que no mata animales. Ninguna mascota bajo nuestro cuidado es sacrificada para crear espacio. Miles de perros y gatos en San Antonio y sus alrededores son salvados de la eutanasia cada año debido a la misión y las prácticas de la SAHS.

A través de nuestros programas de adopción, voluntariado, crianza, esterilización/castración y educativos, informamos y educamos al público sobre la importancia de tener una mascota de manera responsable. Servimos como una de las organizaciones más grandes de adopción de perros y gatos en San Antonio, Texas, ayudando a disminuir el gran problema de sobrepoblación de mascotas de la comunidad de una manera humana. Como organización local sin fines de lucro, no estamos afiliados a la Humane Society of the United States (HSUS, por sus siglas en inglés). No recibimos fondos del gobierno federal, el HSUS, o la American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA, por sus siglas en inglés).

La forma más efectiva de cambiar positivamente su comunidad local es donando a su organización local sin fines de lucro.

Foster, King of the Kitty Cottage 2017

KingoftheKittyCottage2017 w400

Royalty comes in all shapes, sizes ... and species! Fiesta 2017 marked the San Antonio Humane Society's inaugural feline photo contest, Purr-fectly Fiesta, in which the city's most festive felines squared off online to be crowned King/Queen of the Kitty Cottage.

Foster, the three-year-old, medium-haired smoky feline, came from humble beginnings. An unexpected addition to his current family, Foster was first discovered in 2014 as a homeless country kitten in need of shelter. Natalie King invited Foster into her home as a temporary foster, but it took less than 24 hours for Foster to turn from short-term resident into permanent family member. He is named in honor of his mom's "failure" as a foster mom, and enjoys spending his days cuddling and playing with his sister, Penny, a one-year-old Shepherd mix.

Appreciations to Renee Spade Photography for donating her services and providing a wonderful portrait for his royal whiskered highness.

Lucius, King of the Kitty Cottage 2018

2018 2019 KingLucius web

Royalty comes in all shapes, sizes… and species! Fiesta 2018 marked the San Antonio Humane Society’s second annual feline photo contest, Purr-fectly Fiesta, in which the city’s most festive felines squared off online to be crowned King/Queen of the Kitty Cottage.

Lucius was discovered by his mom, Stephanie, on the San Antonio Humane Society Facebook page and she adopted him that same day. He was her first special needs cat. His vision was poor due to multiple birth defects and several consultations with multiple veterinarians suggested his quality of life would be poor. But Stephanie was determined to never give up on Lucius: he was happy, he wanted to live, and he never acted as though he was different than any other cat. Lucius celebrated his eighth birthday in July of 2018. His mom describes him as the most affectionate, loyal, and active cat of her life, and admits he has taught her many things: “Special needs animal do not consider themselves handicapped… they adapt to life with what they have, not what they lack.” Lucius and his mom now spend their days sharing his life online @LifeWithLucius in the hopes that more special needs animals may be given more chances, more second glances, and more consideration for adoption.
