San Antonio Animal SheltersOnce you decided to get a dog, your next question is, “Where do I get one”. While there are a number of places where you can get a dog, we believe you’ll make the right decision if you choose to adopt one from a San Antonio Animal Shelter. There is a network of seven local shelters located throughout the area, all listed below.

A lot of people who get a dog buy one from a local pet store or from a local breeder that someone has recommended to them. We believe there’s a better place to get a puppy or dog. When you rescue a dog from one of the San Antonio Animal Shelters you’ll not only get a great dog but you’ll also be opening up a space for another rescue dog. Prospective dog owners are always flabbergasted at the number and variety of available dogs at our shelters. You can be assured you’ll find the perfect pet here for you and your family.

Animal SheltersOnce you’ve decided to get your new dog from one of the local San Antonio Animal Shelters, you’ll want to get him trained. To help you in this area, we’ve prepared a guide for dog training in San Antonio. We want you to make the right choice as to whom and how your dog gets trained. It’s a big decision and can affect your long term relationship with your dog so we suggest you take your time before making your decision. Many new dog owners take their dog to a local park or pet store that holds group dog training sessions. Others prefer to use a professional dog trainer, which can get expensive. Our recommendation is to train the dog yourself as ultimately you’ll be the one training and working him in the long run. You’ll find it to be a rewarding experience and one that will help you build a life-long loving relationship with your dog.
