More about this shelter

The Humane Society of East Texas was established in 1963 by concerned citizens after they visited the City of Tyler’s inadequate animal impoundment facility. In 2013 we changed our name to Pets Fur People. The focuses shifted to promoting spay and neuter options, educating the community, and emptying the kennels in a good way. The public continues to view the shelter as a public entity and is typically unaware that it receives no public funding or support from national organizations. All funding for the shelter is obtained through adoptions (18 percent), contributions (37 percent), and fundraisers (42 percent).
