San Antonio’s premier no-kill shelter boasts a 97 percent save rate (2012). Adoption fees are $65-$99 for dogs and $30-$50 for cats and include spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, de-wormer, flea and heartworm prevention, collar, tag, complimentary wellness exam within the first five days of adoption, 14-day complimentary follow up care at any VCA animal hospital, 30 days Sheltercare insurance, and a $5 coupon for Science Diet pet food. Hot dog! But seriously, please do not buy your companion animal: adopt it from places like the Humane Society. Accept the fact that there aren’t enough homes for living animals, and spay or neuter yours.
