Our Supporters are INCREDIBLE!!

We asked you to help us keep it going and you did! We have now met our revised goal of $13,000 for our 13th Anniversary Spay/Neuter Fundraiser.  We have raised a total of $13,280 to pay for spay/neuter surgeries for the animals we take in. This total includes the amazing matching donation of $5,000 from Leslie Hoy and Swami Swaminathan and $8,280 from our other incredible supporters. We are so grateful to everyone that has donated to this point! If you would still like to make a donation, please click on the donate button above to go to our donation page.

Here’s an example of why this surgery is important:

We recently took in a very pregnant cat found outside at a local apartment complex. This cat ended up having 10 KITTENS! This is more than she can both feed at one time and produce enough milk for. Fortunately, we had another cat that had just finished nursing her litter and she accepted some of the kittens to raise. While 10 kittens is a very abnormal and huge litter, just think that if 5 of these kittens are female, they each could have had litters of their own within 6 months which could have added another 20-30 kittens to the already overpopulated San Antonio area. But with your help, each of these kittens and momma will be spayed or neutered and the cycle of reproduction will stop.

Now with your help, we are hoping to bring the total for this fundraiser to $15,000 before it ends on April 17th. Please spread the word and help us reach our new goal.

We are also excited to introduce a new way, at least for us, that you can donate. We have partnered with Harness, a donation platform, and now have the ability to use text message keywords to process donations. If you would like to make a donation using this new feature, simply text “SPAY” to 269-89 and you’ll receive a link to make your donation.


Helotes Humane Society

The Helotes Humane Society’s mission is to promote the benevolent treatment of animals and provide humane education. Our group takes in neglected, abandoned, and unwanted dogs and cats. We spay and neuter them, medically treat them, and get them ready for adoption. We use a network of foster homes to provide them with love and care where they can experience, some for the first time, what it is like to live as a member of a family. We firmly believe that the best prospect for improving the treatment of our companion animals is educating the public by giving them the information they need to become better pet owners. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted animals in Helotes, Texas and the surrounding San Antonio community into loving, forever homes and are not associated with or funded by any governmental agency; the vast majority of our funding comes through private donations and grants. You can help by adopting a dog or catdonating or volunteering!

Since our founding in 2008 we have taken in over 6,100 animals and have gotten over 5,800 of them adopted. Our highest priority is finding the right home for every animal that comes through our organization.

We also operate the Second Chances Thrift Shop where all items sold are donated to us and all proceeds go to help the animals in our care.
