Can’t fit another volunteer assignment into your schedule? The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services’ Facility and Adoption Center accepts donations to help care for our impounded animals.

Here are some ways you can help:

Money Donations

Make checks payable to " The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services " and mail to:

Animal Care Services
4710 State Highway 151
San Antonio, Texas 78227

Pet Pantry

ACS operates a food assistance program for pet owners who need a little extra help in hope of keeping pets in their homes rather than being surrendered to the shelter. This program operates solely on donations. Any cat and dog food donations can be dropped off during business hours to the ACS Annex Building. Visit the Pet Pantry for more information.

Mobile Adoptions

Are you interested in having Animal Care Services holding offsite adoptions at your business? This is a great way to draw some attention to your business and get some extra foot traffic while helping to support our shelter. We have an adoption unit that can be set up at your location. This vehicle can bring adoptable animals to your employees and neighborhood community. Our adoption staff and volunteers will be able to make the most out of everyone's time by presenting many more animals in a much more manageable process. If your organization is interested in setting up an off-site adoption event, please call our Adoptions Supervisor at (210) 207-6643 or email

Donate Daily Items

How about helping ACS pets by making a donation of items they need and use on a daily basis?

These items may be purchased during your normal shopping trips and drop them off at the facility or we can arrange to pick up large items. Either way, the dogs and cats at the facility will definitely appreciate you keeping them in your hearts and on your list of charitable giving. We also thank you for your commitment and support of this community’s four-legged friends.
