What We Do & Services

Low Cost Services

   Caring for a pet throughout their entire lifetime can be costly. Animal Care Services (ACS) has a variety of ways that we support pet owners in San Antonio.

Low Cost Vaccinations

Animal Care Services hosts weekly low cost vaccination clinics at the shelter. Held every Monday from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm (no appointment needed) in the ACS Annex Building, the clinics offer pet owners the opportunity to purchase low cost shots for their companion animals as well as get their dog or cat microchipped and licensed as required by City law. All pets should be on a leash or in a carrier. More information can be seen at Pet Shotz or by calling 210.232.1004 or 210.735.1004.


Animal Care Services offers low-cost microchipping anytime during regular business hours – no appointment needed. Lost pets with a microchip have a significantly higher chance of returning home when brought into a veterinary clinic or shelter.

Pet Pantry

Animal Care Services operates a solely donation-funded food assistance program called Pet Pantry for pet owners who need a little extra help in hope of keeping pets in their home rather than being surrendered to the shelter. 

Spay & Neuter Services

Animal Care Services partners with several of San Antonio’s spay/neuter clinics to offer low cost (and often free!) pet sterilization opportunities for local dog and cat owners. See if you qualify.
