Sam is a lover who wants nothing more than to just be with his humans. From what we can gather Sam had a hard life being ending up in our care, so he doesn't like other male dogs and he doesn't like cats. But he does really well with kids and will give you lots of kisses.

About Friends of Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

Friends of Animal Rescue was formed in 2010 to assist the City of Port Isabel when the City took control of the Isabel Y. Garcia Animal Shelter. After placing the shelter’s 400 animals, Friends refocused their efforts towards the animals on South Padre Island. We believe there is a home for each and every homeless animal. We do not believe in euthanizing for the sake of over population, thus we are a no kill shelter for the City of South Padre Island. We are the voice of the animals.

Friends of Animal Rescue services South Padre Island by:
- Reuniting lost pets with residents and tourists
- Adopting out the homeless and unclaimed animals
- Vetting of animals, which includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, micro-chipping, heartworm testing & treatment
- Implementing a trap and release program to reduce feral cat population and the spread of disease
- Assisting in the care of wildlife: possums, raccoons, birds, turtles, etc. by partnering with organizations such as Sea Life and Sea Turtle, Inc.
- Caring for over 800 animals in a given year
