We care for the animals of the Port Isabel shelter and all animals in need in the Laguna Madre area. We care for animals in the tip of Texas area from South Padre Island to McAllen and Harlingen.
The Laguna Madre Humane Society incorporated in 1994. We have a low cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic, a pet food bank and a kennel where we treat heartworm positive dogs from the local animal shelter. These dogs would have been euthanized if we had not intervened and treated them. We have two programs in place to transport animals from our shelters and rescue groups to Northern no-kill shelters that have more room for these friendly pets. The Port Isabel shelter notifies us when they have too many animals and we take the dogs and cats that are on the 'list' and we find foster and permanent homes for them. We keep the Port Isabel shelter from being a kill shelter.
Come Meet our Pets:
We have a weekly adoption event Saturday, 11AM-2PM, at The Garden, 407 East Maxan in Port Isabel, Texas. We are active on Facebook/LagunaMadreHumaneSociety.
Our Adoption Process:
We do not charge adoption fees. We do have an adoption application and an adoption contract.
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.
