Texas Humane Heroes (EIN 74-2069592) is a no kill, private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with adoption centers in Leander and Killeen Texas. Established in 1979, we support communities throughout the entire state of Texas and assist outside our state with natural disaster relocation efforts, such as Hurricane Harvey. We pull dogs and cats into our program from overcrowded shelters that are often forced to euthanize for space. Last year, we pulled 2,804 dogs and cats into Texas Humane Heroes from 42 shelters in 28 counties.

Both Leander and Killeen locations also offer weekly public spay/neuter clinics and monthly low-cost vaccination clinics. Please visit our low-cost clinics page to learn more!
