Donate to Save Lives

Every pet we rescue costs $200. Thanks to our wonderful team and volunteers, we have the ability to adopt out every pet we can bring in, so our budget is the only thing limiting the number of pets we can save. Your love and generosity will fix that problem.

Volunteer to Fuel Your Passion

Volunteers at Texas Humane Heroes are passionate about saving pets’ lives. You can make an impact in animal wellness and enrichment, marketing, events and more by volunteering your time today.

Adopt A Pet to Love

People Love Pets, Pets Love People.
When you love enough to help us rescue homeless dogs and cats, those pets return the love. We believe everyone’s lives are better with a loving pet. Help in our mission by adopting your next family member from Texas Humane Heroes.

Over 36 Texas Counties Served
Over 2,500 Animals Find Homes/Year

Saving Homeless Animals Across Texas

Our goal at Texas Humane Heroes is to take pets from a 5% chance at life to a 100% chance at a loving home. We rescue pets from municipal shelters throughout Texas, some with save rates as low as 5%, and provide them the opportunity to give and receive love.
