Mission Statement

San Antonio Humane Society Mission Statement: To protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay and neuter programs, and community education. San Antonio Humane Society Volunteer Mission Statement: To aid the SAHS in their mission to improve the lives of dogs and cats by donating time and talents to care for the pets, support staff in their daily activities, and assist in Connecting Friends for Life.


The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. Every year, the SAHS shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates approximately 5,000 animals. Many have been injured, abused, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays, and they remain in our care until adopted. Through our adoption, volunteer, foster, and educational programs, we remind the public of the importance of responsible pet ownership, microchipping, and spaying/neutering. As a no-kill organization, the SAHS saves healthy pets, as well as dogs and cats needing medical attention, with euthanasia reserved only for untreatable animals. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and do not receive regular financial support from them. Therefore, donating locally solves a local problem.

I think it is imperative to have as many volunteers to help with all causes. People will find what works for them. But I know a ton of animal people.

Its a nokill. I found it very therapeutic to help and work with the animals that they have here. Bad thing is I wanted to take every dog home. Still its a cool place to be at.
