History & Mission


San Antonio R.O.C.K.S. is an all volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was created to bring awareness and change to the plight of our city’s homeless pet population, and is dedicated to help make San Antonio become, and stay, a No-Kill-City. More than a rescue, S.A. R.O.C.K.S. is focused on bringing awareness to kill shelters by implementing community programs that educate the public the about our homeless stray population.

Founded in late 2012, a collective group of individuals came together after spending countless days and sleepless nights pleading for the city’s homeless pets, only to find that most of the efforts were in vain. Many animals remain homeless in our city and continue to be euthanized daily because there is no place for them to go. Our organization not only focuses on our current pet crisis through our foster and adoption programs, but also focuses on the education of our younger generation, so that they will be able to continue our efforts into making our city a No-Kill City.


Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring positive change to San Antonio’s homeless pet population by not only providing a safe and loving home for these animals, but also by focusing on the education of the community, so that future generations will continue the fight for our homeless pets.
