Our Vision

A home for every pet.

Our Mission

Eliminate pet homelessness.

Who Are We?

Texas Humane Heroes is a No Kill, private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization with dog and cat adoption centers in Leander (Greater Austin Metropolitan area) and Killeen, Texas. Established in 1979, Texas Humane Heroes enhances the lives of pets and people through adoption, availability of our low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics as well as family-friendly community events.

We are 100% funded by donations, grants and modest fees for services. Texas Humane Heroes does not receive any local, state, or federal government funding.

What Do We Do?

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

The problem of overcrowded municipal shelters and pets being put to sleep is a state-wide issue and requires a big vision. Our mission is to build a system to find a loving home for every Texas pet in need.
