Winner: San Antonio Pets Alive
Multiple locations, sanantoniopetsalive.org
"Our vision is to end the practice of euthanizing dogs and cats in need of homes." SA Pets Alive's commitment to finding homes for animals is just one of the reasons why they're San Antonio's favorite pet adoption spot. Each adoption includes getting the pet fully vetted. This includes being spayed/neutered, obtaining all of its necessary vaccines, microchipping (which is required by the city), heartworm testing as well as flea and heartworm preventatives. Taking your new pet to a vet and asking for all of this could cost hundreds of dollars, but it's all included in the low adoption fee at SA Pets Alive. Another perk of adopting through SAPA! is that staff and foster families can often tell you what an animal's personality is like – if they're good with other dogs or cats, if they prefer playing or cuddling (for many animals, it's both), if they have any quirks and even their health history. Basically, when you adopt through SAPA!, all of your bases are covered – no surprise trips to the vet and you won't be caught off-guard when it comes to their temperament. Imagine being able to pick the perfect pet. At Pets Alive, you can.
