San Antonio Adoptable Pets: Meet James, Snickerdoodle, Ginger & More

Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on…

Want to add a furry friend to your family and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many local animals are still looking for their forever homes and facilities still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets with families.

Across Texas, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home — and many are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin the search for your new friend is at Footbridge Foundation, where Ginger the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

If you need some help in your search, Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet James, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
