We are contracted with Bellmead, Beverly Hills, Hewitt, Lacy Lakeview, Lorena, Mart, Crawford, McGregor, Robinson, Waco and Woodway. We accept animals from anywhere, but if we are not contracted with your city, the charge is $45 dollars per animal surrendered. If we do have a contract with you, you must bring two things with proof of your address. *If you live in Bellmead you have to provide a water bill*

About Our Shelter:

Our mission is to provide shelter, food, and medical care to animals in Central Texas, provide adoption possibilities for homeless pets, educate the public about humane, responsible pet care, educate and encourage spaying and neutering to control the pet population, reunite lost pets with their families, and put animals, and their well-being, in the front of community focus. Volunteer: A variety of volunteer opportunities are available including Tender Loving Care (walking dogs and playing with cats), adoption counseling, fundraising and clerical. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Training may be required for some volunteer jobs. Internships are also available. Donation: We accept all animals brought to us and rely on donations to provide food, shelter and humane care and to support our educational programs. Persons may join our Friends of the Animals or donate directly. Gifts in memory or honor of pets and persons are gladly accepted. Product donations of paper towels, bleach, dog and cat food, blankets and towels may be dropped off at the shelter location. Credit cards, cash and checks are accepted.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
