Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Are you up for a challenge? Hank is a peculiar boy. He is a wonderful companion for most other dogs. He NEEDS a strong female dog to keep him in check and feed emotional cues from. He is not a lap dog, wants attention but is fearful to get more than a one handed rubdown. It is a feral dogs' plight. He will need lots of patience to get settled in your home, and we can help with that, but once he is settled, he will be a fun addition to your home. Please write to Adopt@sanantoniopetsalive.org for additional information and updates, but please allow at least 24 hours for a response because we are all volunteers! When inquiring about this pet, please be sure to give the pet's ID#.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Lets start an adventure together Polly was not treated well earlier in her life, however she is doing great now. She loves to be loved but very timid.She loves other dogs but I believe she would be good in a home with/without dogs. She just needs a human who has time/wants to spend time with her and be patient. She would love to be a lap dog. She is small in size....17lbs. She loves to frolic in the backyard and lay in the sun. Shes currently going through leash training but would be best in a home with access to yard . I was scheduled to be euthanized, but San Antonio Pets Alive! saved me and now they are helping me find the forever, loving home that I have never known. I am currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and I am in a foster home. By adopting me, you not only give me a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care. If you are interested adopting, please email adopt@sanantoniopetsalive.org with Pet name and ID#. Please allow us up to 24 hours to respond as all fosters work with us on a volunteer basis.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Ellie is a playful girl who loves other dogs. She is very sweet and oh so cuddly. She is the one to crawl up on the couch and rest her head on your lap. She acts so giddy when really excited--almost puppy like! Being 63 lbs doesn't stop her from kissing and plopping herself on your lap. When it comes other pets, she's met a kitten and slowly grew fond of it, but should still have a slow introduction with cats. She's being treated for heartworms, and is doing well. She's crate-trained; however she does so well outside a crate, she just needs a walk in the morning and a little while after she eats. She was a stray so she doesn't have potty training 100% yet. She was scheduled to be euthanized, but San Antonio Pets Alive! saved her and now they are helping her find the forever, loving home that she has never known. She is currently located at San Antonio Pets Alive!, and is in a foster home. By adopting her, you not only give her a new leash on life; you also save the life of the additional dog who can be rescued from euthanasia and placed in foster care.
