Texas Humane Heroes is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1979, with locations in the Austin and Killeen/Fort Hood areas. Formed by the merger of the Humane Society of Williamson County and the Cen-Tex Humane Society 2nd Chance Adoption Shelter, Texas Humane Heroes is 100% funded by donations, grants, and modest fees for service. Texas Humane Heroes receives no government funding.
A community where every pet has a lifetime home.
To provide innovative programs and services to eliminate pet homelessness and to improve the lives of pets and people throughout Central Texas.
High volume adoption
Pet retention services
On March 1, 2007, Texas Humane Heroes, then known as the Humane Society of Williamson County, implemented a “No-Kill” sheltering model. With the opening of the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter – the new municipally-operated facility to house all stray and owner-released animals in the area – we have refocused our life-saving efforts towards community services and programs that will enable Williamson County to become a safe place where no adoptable pet is euthanized simply because it cannot find a home. Texas Humane Heroes remains committed to serving the needs of all types of pets, but limits the number of animals that are cared for at the shelter at any one time.
With more clearly focused programs to support our mission, we can achieve more to move our community toward a No-Kill community. The combination of high volume adoptions, accessible and affordable spay/neuter services along with programs to help families keep their pets are the keys to building a No-Kill community.
There are no good guys or bad guys in the animal sheltering world. Both “No-Kill” and open-door organizations want euthanasia to end. You can help reduce euthanasia rates by spaying or neutering your pets, adopting from a shelter, and supporting your local animal shelter with monetary donations or volunteer time.
