Whiskers in Wonderland spotlights Christmas critters

This weekend, Animal Care Services is joining San Antonio’s biggest animal shelters for Whiskers in Wonderland, sponsored by Best Friends Animal Society. This event aims to be the largest pet adoption event in San Antonio history. The adopt-a-thon features four different shelters throughout San Antonio, each with hundreds of adoption ready dogs and cats. Dec. 7-8, adopters can bring home a dog or puppy for $40 and a cat or kitten for just $15 from any of the participating shelters:

  • Animal Care Services, 4710 State Highway 151 off Old Highway 90,
  • San Antonio Pets Alive!, 210 Tuleta at the new Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions in Brackenridge Park
  • San Antonio Humane Society, 4804 Fredericksburg
  • Animal Defense League, 11300 Nacogdoches  


Each shelter will have special adoption hours of 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. All ACS pets are sterilized, vaccinated, de-wormed, licensed and microchipped. Every ACS adopter also receives two free tickets to Sea World in support of the park’s Happy Tails program, which encourages shelter pet adoptions.
