Animal Defense League of Texas has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in San Antonio, TX.
SAN ANTONIO — Officials with are joining the spirit of Black Friday with an adopt-a-thon aimed at finding forever homes for the shelter's “harder-to-place pets.”
Keeping our furry friends out of harm’s way, San Antonio Pets Alive! ensures dogs and cats evade or be removed from kill shelters by offering pet adoption, pet fostering, one-time or monthly donating and volunteer services. Since January 2012, the program has rescued more than 10,000 animals, and another 3,000 pets at the new Paul Jolly Adoption Center, across from the SA Zoo, are expected to find new homes yearly. Readers give our resident pet rescuers two (opposable) thumbs up!

Adopt: Information & Pet Search - The City of San Antonio
Paws Ranch Rescue and Animal sanctuary 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (PRRAS for short) that got its start in 2010 thanks to a publicly voted grant from Pepsi. We exist solely on grants, donations, and the help of our dedicated volunteers. Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home or provide sanctuary to as many pets as possible. Hundreds of abused, abandoned, and neglected animals have already been saved by PRRAS. Hundreds of healthy adoptable pets picked up by animal control services (ACS) are euthanized every month! We at PRRAS along with the Alamo Area partnership for animal welfare (AAPAW) and other local rescues are striving to make San Antonio a truly NO KILL city. You can help by getting involved. Adopt a less adoptable pet, foster a pet, sponsor a special needs animal, become a volunteer, donate funds, pet supplies, or food, educate friends and neighbors about the stray pet problem, spay and neutering, and encourage them to adopt instead of breeding or buying. Together we can reach our goal of a Real No Kill City! You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a San Antonio pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in San Antonio is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a San Antonio animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained. Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in San Antonio – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year. The great folks at Prime Time Newspapers have been helping us for many years by including our Pet of the Week in their paper. You can find a copy in the San Antonio Newspaper. A few pets have been adopted thanks to their effort!
