Pets Alive! San Antonio

San Antonio Pets Alive! fills the gaps in the community by identifying the problems that leave dogs and cats euthanized at the shelter and creating innovative programs to overcome those specific problems. Currently, we are focused on rescuing the pets who end up at the shelter and helping keep pets from being surrendered to the shelter. While we believe strongly in spaying and neutering, San Antonio already has great programs for those services, so we are focused on helping the pets who have already been born get out or stay out of the kill shelters.
Shelter Hours: Monday-Friday 11am-7pm, Saturday 11am - 5pm, Sunday Noon-4pm
