Fern loves spending time outdoors with people and will happily trot around on the leash. She’s currently on a weight-loss journey to get to a healthy weight and has already had some success! She's also on a journey to find her forever home. Can you help her out by spreading the word about her? Fern is an 8 year old, Chihuahua mix and you can meet her at our main campus! Check out her pet profile for more info on her:

  • We're so happy to share Gunner's #FirstFamilyPhoto! This handsome boy was another one of our "Diamond in the Ruff" pets. He had been looking for his forever person since August of 2018 and finally found his person this week! We'd like to send a big THANK YOU to his new adopter for giving Gunner a chance! Congrats to them both!
We have many more Diamonds in the Ruff pets that have been searching for a forever home for way too long! These “diamonds” have waived adoption fees when you make a monetary donation of any amount. Please consider giving one of these loving pets a chance! Visit either one of our locations to meet these Diamond in the Ruffs. #adoptADL #adoptdontshop #satx #sanantonio #shelterpetsrock #dogstagram #dogsoftexas #thankfulthursday
