On September 4th, 2020, 24 dogs and 32 cats came into our care. These lost pets were brought in by both Animal Control and the public from the jurisdictions we contract with. As a nonprofit with municipal contracts, we do not have jurisdiction to pick up animals ourselves. If you come across a distressed or injured animal, please call Animal Control immediately, or call us at (956) 329-0128 to make an appointment to drop off the animal yourself. The faster a distressed animal comes to us through Animal Control or the public, the better the recovery time for any injuries for that animal.
