SAN ANTONIO (July 24, 2019) - With summer in full swing, local animal shelters have become crowded with pets in need of homes. Understanding the warmer months are typically marked by higher intake, Animal Care Services, San Antonio Pets Alive, Animal Defense League and the San Antonio Humane Society have banded together to host a three day long adoption event to address shelter overcrowding. The “Pick Your Price” adoption event will take place at each of the participating shelters Friday, July 26th through Sunday, July 28th.


Would be pet parents can name their adoption fee for both dogs and cats and monetary donations are gladly accepted. Standard adoption procedures at each shelter apply and pets are available on a first come-first served basis. Residents are strongly urged to make an informed decision before getting a new pet in order to find a companion that best fits their family and lifestyle. Fosters are also urgently needed for a variety of shelter pets and program information is available at each agency.
