Sister Shelters:

Your tax-deductible donations will support our efforts to move Texas communities forward, joining with other humane states in becoming a no kill country. Area shelters may kill as many as 200-300 kittens or puppies a day; and it is unconscionable for so much death to result from such a preventable problem.

Homeless animals NEED your support of our essential efforts to educate the public and to sterilize those animals in the community producing litters.

Please do not confuse the larger national humane organizations with those in your community working to stop companion animal euthanasia in local shelters. While you may receive many solicitations from organizations out of state, these organizations seldom support local efforts. National organizations have budgets which allow mass mailings and frequently tend to lead the public to believe that they are an umbrella organization, affiliated with local organizations, yet they seldom (IF EVER) provide financial support to local rescue groups.

If you truly love animals and want your donations to make a difference for the animals in your community, please support your local humane society or rescue groups. They need your help!
