Friends of Animal Care Services

Friends of Animal Care Services is a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to:

  • promote and increase spaying and neutering of dogs and cats
  • to increase adoptions by establishing adoption centers
  • develop, promote and advertise public education programs aimed at teaching responsible pet care
  • eliminate cruelty to animals, especially recognizing "The Link" between animal cruelty, child abuse, and family
        violence, thus helping the City of San Antonio become a "No-Kill" Community.


Friends of Animal Care Services is heavily involved in the planning of the new pet adoption center slated for Brackenridge park. In 2010, the City approved $1.8 million in funds to build the additional adoption space but more monies are needed to build the entire project. Friends of Animal Care Services is seeking donations to ensure the new adoption center can be completed with all the necessary features to help save lives. You can send your tax-deductible donation to the San Antonio Area Foundation, 110 Broadway, Suite 230, San Antonio, Texas 78205-1974.
