Clear The Shelters Going on Today In San Antonio

The 4th Annual Clear The Shelters is happening today, Saturday, August 18th.  This is a national effort to help get animals adopted out of shelters into "furever" homes.

At the San Antonio Humane Society ALL pets over 8 months old are just $18.  Pet adoptions include: includes: spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, de-wormer, flea and heartworm prevention, complimentary wellness exam (within 5 days of adoption) and complimentary follow up care (within 14 days of adoption) at any VCA animal hospital , and 30 days 24PetWatch Pet Insurance.

At the Animal Defense League ALL the adoption fees for pets over 6 months old have been waived.  They are open 11am-7pm.  Pet adoptions include: Spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, internal and external parasite treatment, heartworm prevention, 30 days of 24PetWatch Pet Insurance, a starter bag of Heritage Ranch by H-E-B pet food and more!

City of San Antonio Animal Care Services ALL adoption fees have been waived.  All pets adopted from ACS will be sterilized, vaccinated and given a registered microchip I.D.  They are open 11am-5pm. Donations are appreciated. 

That's my Moo.  She's been gone 2 years now and I still miss her to the depths of my soul.  She was a rescue and I thanked God every day for her.  

When looking for a new pet make sure you do your research on breeds to see if they fit your lifestyle.  For example, you don't want a hyper Border Collie that needs almost constant stimulation if you're really laid back.  You also don't want a bulldog (known to be lazy) if you and your family are always on the go.

Once you figure out what breeds work for you, go to the shelter and see which animals you are drawn to.  Then spend some time with them to see if they're a good fit. 

Pets are so wonderful: they give you unconditional love.  They calm you down in times of stress...just from petting them!  And they teach children responsibility.  Consider an adult dog or cat.  You'll already know their final size/weight and their temperament.  

Enjoy your day and I wish you great luck in finding a new member of your family!
