Happy New Year!

Throughout 2021, animals in need were once again able to count on the kindness and generosity of our community.

Here’s some of what our supporters made possible this past year:

  • We sought the pets that were most in need and brought more than 4,600 dogs and cats into our care, an increase of 85% over 2020.
  • Our medical team completed 2,960 spay/neuter surgeries in our onsite hospital, 78% more than in 2020, helping to prevent pet overpopulation.
  • Volunteer foster parents cared for a record-breaking number of animals in their homes — more than 1,550!
  • Our Pet Food Pantry was there for families in need, distributing more than 87,900 pounds of food, litter, and treats.

Pets across Texas found more than just a home — they found a second chance. Today, they are waking up in warmth and safety with families who love them.

But we know there’s more work to do.

In the new year, we’ll share how new partnerships and projects will increase our impact on homeless animals. Together, we’ll continue to save more lives in 2022.
