UPDATE: We are so happy to say that Hank just found his new family! 😃

When Hank was discovered hiding behind some bushes, it was obvious the 8-year-old Terrier senior had been suffering from ongoing health issues and neglect. Sadly, he was extremely matted and blind. He was so matted that he wasn’t able to defecate! Both of his eyes were deflated with a condition called “phthisis bulbi,” an end-stage eye response to severe eye injury or disease.

Once in our care, our medical team gave him all the TLC and medical attention he desperately needed. Hank’s matted fur was shaved, and he underwent surgery to have both of his eyes removed. After receiving some laser therapy and extra treats, he’s now feeling much more comfortable and loves to be around people. He’ll make a great companion to any family.

Hank is now available for adoption and hopes to find a loving home with a big, comfy bed – he deserves it! He’s a wonderful boy ready for his second chance. If you’d like to adopt Hank, visit him today! 🥰

We probably aren't the first to notice that it's been getting a little warmer outside lately! 🌞 But we're not the only ones who feel the effects of the heat - the summer months can cause some dangerous conditions for our pets as well. So in honor of Pet Preparedness Month, we wanted to share some hot weather tips to help you prepare for summer with your pets and hopefully avoid any emergency situations!

UPDATE: Ruby found her new family!

When five-month-old Terrier mix Ruby was brought to the San Antonio Humane Society as a stray in February, she was in pretty rough condition. Sarcoptic mange, ringworm, and tapeworms were among the few things this tiny girl needed medical care for. Because of her young age and medical needs, Ruby quickly became known as “everyone’s favorite baby girl” at the shelter.🥹

She was quickly placed in foster care where she got around-the-clock attention to become strong enough to come back to the shelter. But as she continued to grow, we found out that the bones in both of her front legs were too short, causing them to bow out. So Ruby received a specialized surgery where a cut was made in her bone, and fat from her armpit was placed in between the cut. This fat is full of stem cells that will actually turn into bone as she heals, elongating her arms to fix the bowing - we were amazed to see the results!

Nothing held Ruby back! She was still a happy, playful puppy through it all. She has been working on her rehabilitation and getting laser therapy, and after being in our care for almost four months, she will finally be ready to find her FURever home tomorrow, May 28. Ruby’s foster families say that she is the absolute sweetest girl who is full of energy and will be the light in your life. So if you’re looking for an adorable pup to join your family, meet Ruby tomorrow and bring her home! 💕

Thank you so much for the update on Boosie! 🥰
-----------------------------------------------------------

"I think I’m more excited to write this follow up than I was the first time.

We still say every single day how lucky we are to have had the chance to adopt him. He went from being returned over and over again and ended up with every restriction possible, to proving to everyone that given some time, he would literally become the most amazing success story.

What Boosie has taught me, and I hope to teach you, is that these animals are in a very stressful environment. Boosie actually has severe sound sensitivity and looking back at his environment, his behavior makes total sense. I also learned very quickly that my babe has a pretty mean sounding play voice but.. he’s just playing. If we didn’t get the chance to get to know him as we have, he would have continued to be viewed as aggressive when he was really just misunderstood.

We were told to be prepared to never play tug of war.. never be able to play rough with him. And I can tell you that we do all of those things and then some. He absolutely loves people and loves to take trips to Home Depot, Lowes, and other places where he can indulge in attention considering how gorgeous he is! And although he’s a complete stalker, hes totally fine sleeping in his many choices of rooms while we are out and overjoyed to greet us when we get home. My only complaint is that I didn’t meet him sooner.

One of the best things about Boosie is his ability to change one’s perspective of Pit Bulls in general. My dad and his breed restrictive apartments couldn’t even resist the Charm and he’s a welcomed visitor today. My dad likes to say that he’s a Pit Bull that doesn’t know he’s a Pit Bull. But I like to say it’s quite the opposite. Pit Bull breeds are unlike any other. You’ll never find another breed that will love you, protect you, and save you the way these babies will. Boosie has even inspired me to volunteer with multiple rescue organizations and also to advocate for Pit Bulls everywhere.

Thank you to the San Antonio Humane for being a huge part of our lives and for allowing us the opportunity to love and be loved by Boosie. I didn’t realize how much was missing from my life but i am pretty sure that he did. Had we not took a chance on him, we would not be the family unit we are today.

There is no amount of money in the world that could or would replace him. He’s a irreplaceable treasure that we were blessed to stumble on and now I’m passing on the secret to YOU, a possible adoptee or foster family; the map that will lead you to that same treasure… but only if you are worthy. And if you are, you will feel just as rich as I do!"

UPDATE: Everly found her new family!

Beautiful Everly (1 year old) was limping when she was found as a stray and brought to our care in early March. At our Leeu Naylor Medical Building, X-rays showed she had hip dysplasia and would require specialized surgery. The surgery went smoothly, but Everly had a long road to recovery.

Because she was used to not bearing weight on the left leg, she has been slow to gain her confidence back to use the limb. Our amazing staff and volunteers have been working with her daily to help her regain confidence and strength by doing short leash walks, cold laser therapy and various stretching exercises. After weeks of care, she’s finally ready to find her forever home!

She’s looking for a family prepared to finish her rehabilitation plan at home, and trust us, the effort will be worth it! She’s super sweet and full of life. She’s ready to love her new family and start her next chapter! Visit this gorgeous girl today!

It's 🍀 Saint Patrick's Day 🍀! Show Irish (8 months old) that the luck of the Irish is still a thing, and make her part of your family! 💚
Sweet, little Link was brought to us on Valentine’s Day when she was found as a stray kitten in need of help. She had a fractured pelvis and dislocated hip - poor baby! Luckily, our partners at TSVS were able to help give her the specialized surgery she needed to be able to run, walk and jump again. During her recovery journey, she has received regular physical rehabilitation from our staff and volunteers. She was treated with laser therapy, massage techniques, passive range of motion techniques and the PEMF bed. Today, she was finally made available for adoption. And we are happy to say that in just a few short hours, she stole the heart of her new mom and was adopted! There is no greater feeling than seeing that connection happen! We are so happy that our sweet Link found her purr-fect home and will be loved forever! Her new mom said she works from home and Link will be an only cat, so she’s definitely going to be spoiled!
